when i heard he was coming to NYC, i booked my ticket for the show on the 25th. the romantic side of me wanted to buy two, one for me and one for my cat daddy, but my realistic side told me to go solo.
it was only after i was seated that i felt a little alone but when maxwell came out on the stage, it became a private experience that i was so glad i went all by myself.
maxwell did not disappoint! his energy levels were high as he sang and danced to his newer music and some of his old hits... and when the
he opened with "sumthin sumthin" and closed with... "pretty wings"... and in between he rocked us with "reunion", "til the cops come knockin'", "lifetime", "stop the world", "bad habits", "drowndeep: hula" and other hits... but when he sang "this woman's work" he asked the ladies in msg can i be your baby daddy? all of the women went carazy!
that was friday...
my mom happens to be an employee of madison square garden and got tickets for saturday's show... she was going to give me the tickets but i insisted that she go with me. my mother is a homebody like my girl DC, in fact, i joke with them both that DC is truly my mother's off-spring... so on saturday my mother got dressed and we hit the town... tell me why my mother looked younger than me? she loved the show! she danced when maxwell danced and screamed as he wooed the women with his lyrics.
all in all... maxwell dazzled me... i still get a little woozy when i think about how he performed and how my left eye swole with tears... i beam on the inside part. you know how you see the footage of women swooning and falling out at old michael jackson concerts or even elvis? i almost felt like that... almost.
