A Recap: My Experience at the Love Hard Tour

The Love Hard tour featured K. Michelle, Jaheim, Trey Songz, and Keyshia Cole.

And it was the carefree unexpected millennial release I needed to end the week. I’ll be honest, I’m a hip-hop girlie, but when it comes to what plays in the background of my home during slow Saturdays or virtual workdays – it’s all about the R&B. But I’ve started to notice that those tunes often come from a different era. In my opinion, the early 2000’s doesn’t get the musical credit it deserves; this tour was a strong reminder of that. The Love Hard tour was a fun way to enjoy the excitement of the present, while embracing nostalgia.

After running errands around the city, I got home in just enough time to jump in the shower, put on an “old-faithful” black dress, meet up with bae, and head to the State Farm arena. I’ll admit I got there a little late, which made me miss K. Michelle’s performance. But according to the crowd I was surrounded by, she put on a great show. Jaheim followed her performance and I immediately remembered the words to every song he performed. He has not lost a beat, and his dancers put on a show. Next, Trey Songz shut things down, which was conflicting for me because there was a time when he was one of my favorite artists, and obviously he’s been in the press for a lot of things I don’t agree with. Personally, for me, it’s challenging to disconnect the artist from their art. However, if you are one of those people who can do that, you should know – he sings all of the hits and puts on an amazing show.

The night ended with Keyshia Cole’s performance. She was dressed in a sparkly cowgirl fit that gave me Renaissance flashbacks, and she looked amazing! If you need some gym inspiration, take a look at some of her photos. I thoroughly enjoyed her performance, and it was obvious the crowd felt the same. At one point, I literally turned around to take in the moment, and so many people were singing each word.

If you’re looking for a fun night out to reminisce on less stressful times, I recommend this tour. The crowds were mixed age-wise. I’m in my early 30’s and I feel like the crowd was generally around the same age, but there were definitely people significantly older and younger. Being that it’s black R&B it’s obviously a good date night idea, but I also feel like concerts are always a fun night with friends too. Many times when I attend concerts it’s because I’m a big fan of one particular artist. This felt different because my interest came more from a love of the era and genre holistically, which surprisingly made it feel more laid-back and effortlessly fun. If you’re looking for a random fun night out and you’re a music lover, I’d definitely recommend it.
