Chris Brown charms Melbourne!
His first words to his adoring Melbourne fans were ‘ i came here to party’ and young Breezy certainly did just that. The 21 year old delivered on his opening promise, and had the crowd resonating his sentiments for 1st track “Say It With Me’, bringing the entire audience to their feet. The show began with a military theme - as CB took charge of the arena in his camouflage gear. Chris wasted no time before bringing out his signature popping dance moves to the stage with his tightly choreographed routines, and incredible back-up dancers in tow.
The packed out show was supported by local talent including Justice Crew and DJ Havana Brown, who did a great job warming the crowd up for Australia’s sweetheart Jessica Mauboy. Jess, who showed off her new curves, held nothing back with her amazing vocals.
The title of the album and Tour is F.A.M.E which has 2 meanings - Forgiving All My Enemies, and more evidently on stage Fans Are My Everything. The screaming fans in the full house of Rod Laver Arena showed that they truly were ready to forget the past scandals, and were hungry for Chris’s amazing talents, a combination of athletic ability and beautiful vocals, and Melbourne was ready to appreciate the new offerings Chris Brown was bringing.
Chris Performed some of his classics such as “I Can Transform Ya”, “Run It”, and the hip-hop club hit “Wall To Wall’ where he really broke it down for the fans by bringing some of the intensity of the video clip to the stage. The crowd were forgiving of the fact that some of these tracks were mimed, for he compensated and gave the audience what they wanted, by not holding back with his moves. However he mixed it up, and suited up, to showcase his beautiful vocals on his slower jams such as “Yo”, “No Air”, and my personal favourite “With You”.
The highlight of the night was when Chris gave his Melbourne fans his Australian chart topper “Yeah 3x”. It seemed like the entire audience was singing along with him, and at that moment the venue could have easily been mistaken for a giant party rather than a concert. There was dancing, screaming, glow sticks and excitement in the air. The atmosphere was electric.
Chris Brown definitely knows how to entertain, involve and engage with the crowd and proved that Fans really are his Everything!
