As the anticipation built at a sold out Adelaide Entertainment Centre, Post Malone aka Posty made his way out of staging that resembled him coming out of a space ship.
Broken Whiskey class opened the set list and the pyro arrived for the second song, “Too Young”.
More pyro arrived for his huge track “Better Now” where things really stepped up in atmosphere. During this song and many of his other massive hits, Post Malone was able to rest his vocal cords with the entire crowd singing along to these songs word by word.
Candy Paint bought the entire audience to their feet and we personally found this song to be one of the unexpected highlights of the set.
What made this a great concert was the way Post Malone was able to bring things down with Up There and Paranoid bringing a slower pace to the concert. An acoustic number was played for I stay with accompanying cigarette.
Post Malone then went into chatting about netflix episode he appeared in with the crowd and then played a surprise old skool classic (Return of the Mack) which was not played at Perth Arena on Friday night.
It was now time for the epic ending where three of his biggest hits were played (Sunflower, Rockstar, and Congratulations) with pryo bringing the concert to a massive close.
Post Malone’s Adelaide concert was absolutely amazing, both with his legendary music, stunning lighting and awesome visuals.
Each song was accompanied with lighting that matched the tone of the song and, with the help from some flames behind Post Malone, helped to create epic footage of the man himself on the screens either side. Transitions from one song to another were instantaneous at times which only added to the excitement of the moment, one example is after Sunflower plays it transitions into Rockstar as if both songs were one in the same.
Overall the concert was exhilarating and had everybody standing up from their chairs dancing and singing along with Post Malone as he walked through the many lights and posed for the camera.
The question is what surprises lay in store for Melbourne and the rest of the tour. Buy your tickets and find out as we learnt on this evening that this set was different from the previous set in Perth.
