From start to finish, the allure of Iggy Azalea, motivated hundreds to visit New York City’s Irving Plaza. Dominated by carefree laughs, abounding spirits, and an eager audience, the atmosphere promised a delightful event.
Once the curtain rose to reveal, Hotel Iggy, instantaneous applause consumed the theater. IGGY, IGGY, IGGY—the boisterous chant abated as DJ Vice took the stage. Propped behind the 1’s & 2’ s, Vice’s smooth dexterity demonstrated his fluid ability to fuse several genres. Everything from the infectious Pop of Bruno Mars, to the insatiable grit of Nicki Minaj, to the emphatic declarations of Montel Jordan compelled the crowd to party.
Following unforeseen technical difficulties, Iggy Azalea’s mere presence was enough to forgive the show’s delay. The Australian rapper whose provocative lyrics rival that of her sensuous limbs did not disappoint. “F*ck Love,” “Bounce,” “My World,” “Don’t Need Y’all,” all elicited a tremendous crowd response. “Lady Patra,” “Pu$$y,” “Black Widow,” “Fancy,” and “Work” showcased the phenomena that has propelled Iggy to stardom.
Iggy’s ability to spit live and to relentlessly entertain will ensure that purchasing a ticket is a sound investment.
