I’m a huge Erykah Badu fan so i didn’t have to think twice to buy a ticket for her concert in Amsterdam last month. I saw her about a year ago in a much bigger room but now she played two nights in the more intimate Paradiso. Since this tour is not supporting a new album the setlist was more varied than the last time. She played quite a few tracks from her first Buduizm album (she will play the complete album live on a Hip Hop festival in the US, she told us) and also from Mama’s gun, Worldwide Underground and New Amerykah pt 1 and 2. She keeps it in the family: in her band her coussin is playing percussion and her sister is one of the backing vocalists. The whole evening was wonderful, Erykah was funny, relaxed and she had such a good time that she almost had to be pushed of the stage. Looking forward to see her play live again next year! By then her new album (produced by Flying Lotus) will be out.
Annie, don’t wear no panties!
