On Wednesday, August 30, Nau’Jour Lazier Grainger, better known as Toosii, came to Chicago to perform as part of his Naujour Tour.
The tour was kicked off in late July in San Francisco, CA, and will continue through early September where he’ll be concluding in Indianapolis, IN.
Held at the House of Blues, the stage was set with screens displaying the Naujour album cover. Colored lights lit up the stage and bounced around the cheering crowd that was going absolutely insane. The floor was literally shaking because the attendees were so live.
Toosii performed hit songs from his Naujour album including “Favorite Song” and “Another Love Song.”
“Chicago is one of my favorite places to go,” Toosii told the crowd. That just made the crowd get even loud.
Before Toosii even graced the stage, his official DJ, JohnnyGoin2x, had to hype the crowd up and ensure their energy was up and he did just that. He played throwbacks like “Love” by Keyshia Cole and “When I See U” by Fantasia. You know he played “Faneto” by Chief Keef. Would it really be a Chicago show without it?
Overall, it was a very enjoyable experience. Toosii fans definitely know how to have fun. A 10/10 experience. I’d recommend anyone to go to one of his shows. In fact, there is one more show tonight at the HOB. Catch it if you can!
