Grammy award-winning producer and acclaimed artist Pi’erre Bourne gave life to Varsity Theater in Minneapolis, Minnesota last night. The rapper announced on stage that Varsity had been sold out for this show. Minnesota however, was not the only show to be sold out on this tour. Pi’erre had posted on his Instagram story before the show last night, that all of the 14 stops on his tour had sold out.
COVID had put a halt to all gatherings. Concert life is beginning to start up again in Minneapolis. Pulling up to the event, you could see the line beginning to wrap around the block. Excitement was high with fans playing Pierre’s music through their speakers. Varsity themselves were very particular about COVID precautions; going above and beyond in order to make sure guests were safe during their time at the venue.
The night kicked off with the opening DJ Ech0astral come on stage and perform his heart out, making sure the energy of the crowd stayed on a steady incline. Ech0astral truly did put everything they had into this performance and you could truly tell that entertaining was something he is truly passionate about.
After Ech0’s set was a lengthy break while waiting for Pi’erre to come on stage. Pi’erre finally arrived at the venue and once fans caught sight of him entering, it was nonstop screaming of the producer’s well-known tag “Yo Pi’erre, You wanna come out here?”. Pi’erre had nothing but love for his Minnesotan fans. He made a point of frequently interacting with the crowd.
Overall, the show was truly a notable night. With a completely sold-out tour, Pi’erre proves that he can do more than just produce; he is a significant artist and performer.
