Concert Review : The R&B Money Tour @ MGM National Harbor

On the evening of Thursday, May 23rd, the talented R&B artist Tank was greeted with an enthusiastic reception as his highly anticipated R&B Money Tour made a stop at The Theater At MGM in Oxon Hill, MD. The hometown hero from Clinton, MD, was joined by the soulful crooner Carl Thomas from the Windy City and the sensational Ms. Keri Hilson from Georgia. 

After a DJ set by DJ Fly, local singer Alyssa presented the audience with a medley of cover songs followed by her original "Why You Gotta Be So Sweet ." Subsequently, Carl Thomas took the stage in an elegant two-piece white suit. His performance commenced with the album track "Special Lady," seamlessly transitioning into "My Valentine," the "Emotional" remix, and "Summer Rain." Thomas concluded his set with his signature song, "I Wish."

Keri Hilson's performance was not just captivating; it was a testament to her strong bond with her fans. She showcased more than just her popular hits like "Turning Me On," "Put Your Money," "Knock You Down," and "Energy." The slow jams "One Night Stand," "I Invented Sex," and "Slow Dance" were personal highlights, each one met with thunderous applause and cheers. Her closing song, "Pretty Girl Rock," was a great way to end the show, leaving the audience wanting more. However, I wish she had included a medley of the songs she's written for other artists, as it would have been an exciting addition to the performance.

Finally, the moment everyone had been waiting for arrived-Tank, the much-anticipated performer of the evening, took the stage. The crowd erupted in cheers and applause as a captivating countdown screen heralded his arrival. Tank, adorned in a splendid suit reminiscent of 1970s soul groups, appeared at the center stage. His opening number, "You're A Star," set the tone for the next seventy minutes as he showcased a selection of tracks from his extensive two-decade discography.

The songs "When We," "It's Your Birthday," and "Sex Love & Pain" were received with great enthusiasm by the predominantly female audience. However, the highlight for me was "Slow," featuring an impressive collaboration with J. Valentine, along with renditions of "How Does It Feel" and "I Can't Make You Love Me." I also commend Tank for demonstrating piano prowess during a medley of compositions from his tenure with The Underdogs.

Tank concluded his performance with his current hit, "Before We Get Started." The compelling performances by these three R&B luminaries culminated in an unforgettable evening of music and entertainment, leaving hope for future collaborations to establish this as an annual event.
