David Dallas & TDR at Rapture

rapture_david dallas_lanisays2

At half past one in the afternoon on Saturday, lines had already formed, fans waiting outside, drinking, getting shade, trying on their new Slim Shady tees. Inside, the stage sat waiting, the empty pit and terraces staring back at David and The Daylight Robbery. Wide-eyes turned back and forth from the expanse of Western Springs in front, to the huge screens overhead. If it hadn’t hit them before, it probably did then. This was no ordinary show. They were opening for a superstar. What a trip to see the name ‘David Dallas’ on the same bill as Eminem. There was something in the air that day in Auckland, the traffic, the drunk people pissing on the street, the costumes from the 9’s, it all added to the buzz of excitement that hummed happily through the 55 thousand plus people who set about filling the stadium. And at 5:45 PM David Dallas and the Daylight Robbery stepped on stage and killed it, from front – to back. What a day, what a night, what a glorious memory.

    Was an amazing show, David Dallas and The Daylight Robbery did not only themselves but the whole of New Zealand proud. I have been lucky enough to see them preform on many occasions and am never disappointed. The highlight of the show was just after their set when I rang home as my 12 year old brother wanted to know everything about the set. What songs they chose to what David was wearing etc.

    David Dallas is, for sure, one of the best rappers out there. With the brosephs from The Daylight Robbery and Fire and Ice, it just get greater. All the crew have a lot of talent, and they’re showing worldwide. Like Rute Aparecida Dos Santos, I live in Brazil and I hope that one day, all of them come to Brazil and I see them live. Dreams can come true, right?
    Cheers from Brazil Lani, and keep the great work (:
