Club Paradise Tour: Drake @ DTE Energy Music Theatre 5/30/12 (Concert Review & Photos)
Metro Detroit’s DTE Theatre could not have fit one more Drake fan into the packed venue for Drake’s sold-out Club Paradise Tour. Detroit embraced the club theme as women tottered around in 5-inch heels and tight dresses, and the men sported their sharpest tees and sneakers. Alcohol instigated a full-on dance party and sly fans managed to sneak in enough cannabis for all the smokers. The club atmosphere was achieved as Drake was able to pull off performing and connecting with his audience as if everybody was inside a much smaller venue. Drake communicated a lot with his fans throughout the night and squeezed in as many of his hits as possible. No expenses were spared in the stage production of the Club Paradise tour especially with Drake’s top of the line lighting. He even had miniature scarlett fireworks highlighting the stage early on in his show. Despite guest brief appearances from fellow stars like Waka Flocka and 2 Chainz, Drake was left alone on stage to successfully command the attention of the crowd.
