Flo Rida made his way to Tucson’s AVA Amphitheater on Sept. 9 to a wildly welcoming crowd. He landed at Tucson’s airport at 9 p.m. and hit the stage by 9:30 p.m. He was in top form and ready to have the best party in the southwest. The hip hop star reminded the pumped up crowd that he has sold more that 100,000,000 records to date and this show was testimony to Flo Rida’s uncompromising charisma.

There was no band, only a DJ backing Flo Rida. No one seemed to notice. The superstar took command of his ‘house’ and the crowd from the first seconds of the show until the end. The party started officially when Flo Rida cracked a bottle of pink champagne and literally shared it with the fans.

Early in the set, he invited all the ladies in the audience to join him on stage. That was after he handed out long-stemmed red roses to the lucky women close to the stage. He was particularly fond of the youngest fans. He handed out bling to a little girl who brought her sunglasses to the affair.

The hits kept coming throughout the show and the fans sang along knowing all the words. As Flo Rida sang “Wild Ones,” “Right Round,” “My House” and “Green Light,” he would cruise the crowd on the shoulders of a security guard. He bumped hands, kissed the kids and maneuvered throughout the arena while singing at the same time. He had no fear of the crowd and the security guard must have the strongest shoulders in Arizona.

Flo Rida gave three men equal time on stage toward the end of the show. They actually sang with him. However, it was obvious that the women were his favorite. This was a show filled with positivity and love. Fun was the order of the night. One can say that the ladies of Tucson love Flo Rida as much as he loves them.
