The High Road Tour Recap

August 22, 2016

The rain held off Sunday evening for 'The High Road Tour', as go-er's were rewarded by excellent performances from all the acts.

Casey Veggies opened musically, to the enjoyment of all the area kids who were there for the final day of Summer.  Jhene Aiko followed up wth a raunchy RNB showcase.  After a 20 minute break, Kevin Gates performed all of his hits as the sun went down over COTA.

Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa had a combined performance - with Snoop batting lead off.  The longtime Long Beach slim rapper with the tilted brim did nothing but mega hits.  While Wiz' songs were widely lesser known, it gave a slight feel of uneveness during the performance.  Ending before 11pm, I felt it was a win-win for all in attendance - able to get home at a decent hour before the start of a hectice work/school week.  

Overall Grade: B.  I wasn't a huge fan of the baton nature of Snoop and Wiz' performance, Kevin Gates was surprisingly good, while Jhene acted as if she partied a bit much before (and yet I still loved her showcase).
