191: Big Sean "Hall Of Fame" Album Release Concert at Terminal 5

This concert was on the day of his Hall Of Fame album release date in New York City. Big Sean tweeted about a free concert at Terminal 5 at 9pm. I had to run some errands, but then hurried to this place and arrived at 5pm. I was expecting it to be a very long line but was treated to no one. Apparently he retracted the tweet and it was not up for the whole five hours I thought it was going to be. This was because J.Cole had a similar situation with album and the line was so long that he decided to perform two shows in a row. At Terminal 5, there ended up being many people without tickets, and people with tickets, even though the show was first come, first served. The  security arrived around 7 or so and separated the crowd waiting into two lines, one with physical tickets and ones without across the street. I was luckily enough to have befriend some people in line that had tickets and even extra ones, so I waited with the physical holders. Once everyone was let in, Funkmaster Flex did an opening set with Big Sean beginning the show shortly after. He did about all the tracks on the albums, and select others. Surprise guests he brought on stage included his father, Juicy J for Show Out, Wiz Khalifa for Gang Bang, and his DJ Mo Beats to rap Meek Mills verse on Burn. His stage set up were two drum sets and light pillars for visuals and his DJ Mo Beats. Sean has shown great progression from his mixtape days to Finally Famous to Hall Of Fame.
