There have been many outstanding performances at the Xfinity Center (formerly Great Woods) in Mansfield, MA, but none have reached the energy level felt throughout the venue at the sold out “If Y’all Weren’t Here, I’d Be Crying” tour.
Austin Post Malone informed the crowd this was the first tour he has done with a live band. His stage was filled with various violinists, guitarists, percussionists, etc. Everyone on stage was having a great time vibing and partying along with the audience. From the moment Post Malone took the stage to open with his massive hits “Better Now” and “Wow.”, he had his red solo cup in hand and the entire place felt electric. There were even free samplings of Don Londrés, the tequila put out by Post’s manager Dre London, in the VIP area at the Xfinity Center. Everywhere you looked in this venue it was set up to ensure the best experience possible and Post absolutely delivered.
An unexpected twist in the night was when singer-songwriter, Noah Kahan, got on stage to perform the song “Dial Drunk”. This was the first time this hit collaboration was performed live with the two singers which was a spectacular treat for concert goers.
Post Malone continued the night with his hits “rockstar”, “Circles”, and “White Iverson”. He even played his latest release, “Overdrive”, that will be on his newly released album Austin. He closed out his 22-song set with 3 additional encores, including “Sunflower”. As the show ended and Post Malone had already poured everything he had into his music and performance, he still stayed around to greet and take selfies with as many fans in the pit as security would allow. Clearly Post Malone has a massive fanbase in Massachusetts and they will be anxiously awaiting his return.
