Beyonce's "I Am" Concert Review+T.I. Officially Sentenced

T.I. was officially sentenced today by an Atlanta judge to 1 year and a day for his weapons charges.  He has 30-60 days to report to jail.  I know he's about to be getting it in--in every way possible--until then. He went out to Keri Hilson's album release last night:

And showed off his new bike.

And Beyonce kicked off her I Am... Tour last night in Edmonton, Canada.  But it didn't get rave reviews from the Edmonton folks:
If Beyonce’s first outing on her I Am ... tour was no major disappointment, it was still a somewhat muddled affair, one that didn’t really clear up where the line between Beyonce and her supposed “alter ego” Sasha Fierce is drawn. Opening with some momentous numbers — Beautiful Nightmare and Crazy In Love, which were peppered with touches of Eurythmics’ Sweet Dreams, DJ Kool’s Let Me Clear My Throat and The J.B.’s Pass the Peas — you would have thought Sasha was already in the house. Add a rump-shaking Freakum Dress and, three songs in, Beyonce — ahem, Sasha Fierce — was already in full-blown party mode, shaking her golden-sequined, bow-clad tush and flailing her hair about wildly. If only it had stayed that way. The quieter, more introspective segment that followed was a collection of moments ranging from mildly corny (Ave Maria and an awkward on-stage wedding gown transformation) to supremely boring (Satellite).
Source They did say it looked like no one left disappointed though. B sold about 8,800 tickets--lower than they expected. And tonight's show has sold even less. Whatevs. I'm still gonna be all up in her concert at Essence fest in July. And what....

Screw B I like her sister she

Screw B I like her sister she seems real. Never seen her in person and never plan too and I wasnt a DC fan either. Who cares TI I used to be a fan you suck, you could not be a role model to my son. And Tiny is ghetto and needs speech lessons. Have you heard this dumb bunny talk?

I'm not surprised that it

I'm not surprised that it didn't get great reviews. Her last album just wasn't as good as her first 2.

@MissGolden I don't know

@MissGolden I don't know who those other posters are. To set the record straight, I don't care if Beyonce, Britney, Mariah, or any other artist out there sings someone else's classic song....it shouldn't be done. The great's don't do that...Mariah, Whitney, Celine...they just don't do it. A classic song is one of a kind and to think you can replicate a classic is disrespectful. The only exception is if the original artist asks you to sing it...then I can see it. Otherwise no. Beyonce already has a problem with stealing other people's stuff and claiming it as her own, why sing Classic songs on your tour. I'm not a Beyonce hater. I love her music (minus this latest album). She is (most of the time) a great performer. But at the end of the day, I respect her sister 10 times more than I ever will respect her...at least Solange is herself. As someone who has done PR for over 10 yrs....Bey is a publicist's dream. She repeats word for word what a publicist tells her to say, does what they tell her to do so she can seem "perfect." Beyonce is capable of being amazing, but until she ditches the "I'm a doll...flawless" routine, she's never going to gain the respect she craves.

I like Beyonce but over the

I like Beyonce but over the past few months her ego and nasty diva like attitude has made me not want to entertain her ass anymore either. If the tickets sales are poor in Canada I'm sure they'll do much worse in the States, people are sick of her and she should maybe consider taking a break for a while...

Excuse me YBF but Beyonce's I

Excuse me YBF but Beyonce's I AM.... Tour is getting rave reviews. I have read several reviews and they all say that she put on a spectacular show from beginning to end. Her costumes are fabulous and her cover of Alanis Morisette's "You Oughta Know" has been praised. I wish you all would have highlighted the reviews that praised miss B's tour. I feel this was a horrible review for you to put up especially considering the majority of people loved it. Well maybe you just wanted to put up something negative to seem more interesting but at any rate Beyonce is doing her thing with this tour. GO GIRL!!!!

MissGolden Kay P and Serene

MissGolden Kay P and Serene are you the same person? But no in all seriousness, Beyonce has an extensive catalogue and could put in many songs if she chooses. However please don’t act like, artists don’t have performances where they put in current music, or pay homage to the place they are going to. It’s a way to switch up their music, bringing life to it, and also Beyonce was just showing the crowd that she enjoyed their music. What is wrong with that???? She also performed in Nigeria for a concert and sung the Nigerian national anthem before, for which they were very proud. She sung in French at the Oscars, and in Spanish when she went to Latin America countries. I don’t understand how people think this is a new thing, when people have been mixing in different songs to concerts forever. For those trying to box Beyonce in and saying she’s just shaking weave, etc have never been to a concert, or either just don’t like her that much that they try to throw negativity. I’ve been to several concerts, and she’s a phenomenal entertainer. We should big up our performers who are truly truly talented and giving their all and succeeding in a country that really favors rock music overall, rather than just throwing shade without ever seeing a show.

I have no doubt that

I have no doubt that Beyonce's tour will do very well as with her last tour. As many have stated these three or four shows in Canada are nothing more than a warm up for the big Europe/US tour. Beyonce is going to see what works and what does not and how to make the show tighter. For those Britney fans who hat Beyonce, if you think this review of Beyonce is bad, you should read all of the reviews of Britney show which have been awful. Everyone says the same thing, she ALWAYS lipsychs, the dancing is either non-existent or lethargic and there is so much happening on the stage to district the audience to the fact that Britney is not really singing. One thing about Beyonce, the dancing and singing is always on point. Secondly, Britney has not toured in five years so comparing Beyonce to Britney makes no sense. Lastly, Beyonce is ranked #9 on the Billboard charts and Britney is ranked #22 so there you go.

I am from Edmonton and I saw Beyonce's show lastnight. I thought she KILLED it! Edmonton definitely has an urban crowd but it's not a big crowd compared to the "Rock" or "Country" crowd though. But everyone I know says B killed it last night. Much respect! She really is an icon

For those of you who are

For those of you who are talking about the o2, o2 actually has different arena's and when day26 where here they performed at 02 indigo which is smaller than the main o2. Bey has sold out at o2 and I cannot wait to watch as she does a good job, I actually became a bey fan after watching her live. hope when she gets here she sings a song from a u.k artist We don't mind! That's what makes it interesting mixing and matchin the songs, so what if its somebody else's song-get a grip people

Haha I love to read comments

Haha I love to read comments of people who even havent seen a video of her performing during this concert last night! She's the "hottest chick" in the game right now...and that's why people love to hate on her ( because they actually love her). I supported her always and I keep doing that! She's THE QUEEN.

I freakin' loved Beyonce's last concert and I'm extremely critcal of performances. You really got to bring it to impress me because I've been to soooo many concerts. So, I will try to check out the new tour, if it works into my schedule. :)

The full episodes are available to watch on their web site..worth the time to watch. All the best to YOU Mr. Harris.
