The Love Hard tour ended Black History Month the right way. The concert took place this past Thursday, February 29th, at the Wintrust Arena. The show’s artists included K Michelle, Jaheim, Trey Songz, and the amazing Keyshia Cole.

Doors opened at 7:00 pm and the line was almost around the whole arena. The concert was sold out and everyone was waiting to get to their seats. Things kicked off at 8:00 pm and K Michelle was first up. She performed the hit songs “V.S.O.P,” “Can’t Raise A Man” and “Love ‘Em All”. After K Michelle, Jaheim hit the stage and the audience was cheering for his whole set. Jaheim’s performance consisted of his hit songs “Find My Way Back,” “Put that Woman First” and “Ain’t Leaving Without You.”


After Jaheim, Trey Songz came out and that’s when the crowd started going absolutely crazy. Songz lit up the stage with his amazing act that had the audience singing word for word. Songz set was on for about 20-30 minutes, so you heard the majority of his hits including “Bottoms Up,” “Slow Motion,” “Love Faces,” “Say Aah,” and “Can’t Help But Wait”.

Cole was the headliner, and the audience was yelling the moment she took center stage. Just like with Songz, the crowd sang all the lyrics and Cole definitely left it all on the stage with her amazing vocals and her dancing. If you love R&B, the concert was definitely a 10/10. In my opinion, this may be the best tour of the year so far.
