Although it didn’t rain at this weekend’s Rockfest, that didn’t stop rain from being a factor in the day. Although they were minor, mud seemed to be the only real setback of the day. There was one band that cancelled due to member illness, but Rockfest appeared to be a success. That being said, how did Tech N9ne’s performance go? Here is what the KC Star had to say about it.
The Kansas City based rap star Tech N9ne dazzled in a rock-tinged appearance he characterized as “the biggest show we’ve ever done in Kansas City.” He was entirely in his element during his Rockfest debut.
During a rendition of the speed-rap song “Worldwide Choppers,” he appeared to break the fall of a crowd-surfer as she crossed the stage barrier.
Some rock purists took issue with his presence. Their objections are silly. The proper question isn’t whether or not Tech N9ne belonged at Rockfest. Instead, it’s what took so long to make it happen.
Here is video of Tech’s performance taken by youtube user Skyi Darnall.
