Robyn @ Webster Hall
Robyn

"Kelis and Robyn (whose Body Talk Pt. 2 will be out in September) may have been billed as co-headliners for Tuesday night's show at the Trocadero [in Philly], but it was in words only.

In a multiracial crowd of men and women in their 20s and 30s, Robyn was the clear favorite.

Kelis took the stage first. The 30-year-old singer hit pop culture with her infectious and slightly risque "Milkshake" back in 2003, but has since transformed herself from a Neptunes-produced rap/hip-hop/neo-soul star into a club diva.

She came on stage in a one-sleeved, sequined mini-dress - wearing five-inch heels and a platinum-blond wig with a partial weave of Christmas-tree tinsel - and said that all she wanted to do was dance. She wasn't kidding. In fact, while she sang a few songs off her latest album, Flesh Tone, most of her set was a karaoke collection of Top 40 hits from past decades interspersed with snippets of her own songs... [Philadelphia Inquirer]

Robyn (whose Body Talk Part 2 will be out in September - cover art and tracklist below), Kelis (whose milkshake brings all the boys to the yard) & Dan Black (who was just nominated for two MTV Video Music Awards - nominated video below) are on a tour (that also includes Far East Movement) that brought them to Music Hall of Williamsburg last week and Webster Hall last night (8/4).

Last night's high energy show was the first of two for the artists at the same venue (they return to Webster Hall tonight, 8/5). All three NYC shows are/were sold out. More pictures from Wednesday's, including Dan and Kelis's setlists, below...

I had a lot of fun at the show. All synth pop bands should have two drummers at the front of the stage.

Great shots! I love the atmospheric ones... Robyn was UNREAL. I especially love how "Don't Fucking Tell Me What To Do" was basically 10 mins (?) of her dancing around the stage, which is FINE BY ME!

robyn was absolutely unreal. on a whole other level. last night rocked. haven't seen a crowd be so uniformed in complete love for a performer in a long time. she took the roof off of webster. you can't fake that shit.

Was there a single straight guy in the house?

Anyone know what time did Kelis go on? And did the place supposedly turn into a club at 10PM like they claim it will tonight?

Posted by Anonymous | August 5, 2010 12:11 PM

12:04 - me.

12:11- I don't know if tonight's show will be tighter but Kelis went on a 815 and played until about 9:30-9:40ish. Robyn went on a little after 10 and played an hour.

I think I saw that tonight has a 10 PM dance party so I'm sure they will tighten up the sets. It did feel like last night was stretched out a bit because they could.

One of the all time best shows I have ever seen. EVER. I haven't danced that hard ever. The energy was indescribable. These photo's are amazing. Great job!!!

Millionaire
Trick Me
Milkshake / Holiday (Madonna) (mashup)
4th Of July (Fireworks)
Sign Your Name (Terence Trent D'Arby)
Lil Star

Acapella


7/28 Robyn setlist:
