2 Girls Who Travel here. First off, Happy New Year! We are so ready for all that 2018 has in store for us.
Now, you know we love a good concert. Thinking back to some of our favorites: Adele, Janet Jackson’s State of the World Tour, The Black Heritage Festival with Eric Benet and the McDonald’s Inspiration Celebration with Kirk Franklin, The Clark Sisters, Donald Lawrence, Brian Courtney Wilson and Jekalyn Carr. Well, when Xscape reunited and announced their Great Xscape Tour, we knew we had to be there.
The Great Xscape Tour stopped at Houston’s Toyota Center and we were so ready for it. Many people fondly remember Xscape members, Tameka “Tiny” Cottle, Kandi Burruss and sisters LaTocha and Tamika Scott. Xscape had a number of hits in the ’90s, including “My Little Secret,” “Who Can I Run To,” “Just Kickin’ It,” and one of our personal favs, “Understanding.”
Kandi and Tiny have stayed in the reality tv spotlight with “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” and “T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle.” The entire group even recently did a four-part series on Bravo TV called “Still Kickin’ It” that highlighted the road leading up to reuniting and touring.
Back to the concert.
We started the evening with drinks in the Lexus Lounge (thanks BBVA Compass for the lounge passes). The tour included girl group June’s Diary (formed by Kelly Rowland), R&B artist Zonnique (Tiny’s daughter), Tamar Braxton (breakout star of “Braxton Family Values” and “Tamar & Vince”) and R&B royalty, Monica. All these ladies did an excellent job and the packed Toyota Center enjoyed their sets.
Then what we had been waiting for – Xscape hit the stage. It was nonstop hit after hit and we were on our feet singing along. Kandi even brought out her husband Todd on stage and serenaded him with a sexy song.
In between songs, Xscape brought out Houston’s hometown royalty, Bun B and Scarface. They came out and did some of their hottest hits: UGK/Bun B’s “International Players Anthem” and Scarface’s “Finer Things”.
Tiny, Tamika, LaTocha, and Kandi still got it and put on a great show. Basically, Xscape is back and they’re giving us life!
