Ludacris - Saturday 6th August - Angels Stadium, Los Angeles

Ludacris and band in the middle of the "Angels Stadium".
Those keen enough could queue to get on the diamond.
Errr...an unexpected
"treat". Whilst on hols in the US, it transpires that some of the basball teams do what the racecourses in the UK do and put musical acts on after the sporting entertainment. So after seeing the Angels well and truely thrashed 5-1 we had the delight of seeing the "multi-award and multi-grammy winning hip-hop artist and actor". Now I must be honest and feared the worst - this isn't likely to be my cup of tea at all, but as my son was keen to stay - and within reason I'll try any music once - we decided to give it a go. Now I'm not wanting to offend anyone who likes this style of hip-hop or thinks that Ludacris is the best thing since sliced bread, but at the end of the first song, my son says "Can we go now please?" whilst covering his ears. So we did, as the 2nd and 3rd songs played whilst we made our way out of the stadium (with several thousand others!), I honestly couldn't tell the difference between the tracks. Lots of bass and shouting is a fair description.
