Twilight Concert Series 2012: Common & Aloe Blacc
Chicago hip-hop artist Common closed this years Twilight Concert Series last Thursday. Here are some pics I took of the show. He went onstage a bit late but he was worth the wait. He was awesome live and even did a cover of Nas' classic song "N.Y. State of Mind" as a tribute to Nas who had headlined the concert series a few weeks earlier. According to the local newspaper Common attracted a crowd of more than 27,000. Warming up the crowd before Common took the stage was R&B artist Aloe Blacc. I got to the concert a bit late and only caught the last of his set but from what I did hear he sounded great live. I had a great time this summer and can't wait to see who will be on the bill for next year.
