After having to postpone his show which was initially meant to take place in early March, Aminé finally made his Montreal debut and was met with open arms. The room was filled with anticipation as soon as doors opened, with fans slowly packing the venue. Some even brought out some colourful signs in hopes that it would lead them to sign a patch on the rapper’s famous tour pants. Continuing his tradition from previous tours, Aminé wore the same pair of jeans and added a custom patch per each tour date, inviting a fan to sign them. “When I get old I want to have something to prove to my kids that I was cool,” he joked during the set.
Aside from this show being his first in the city, having two albums: Good for You (2017) Limbo (2020) as well as mixtapes OnePointFive (2018) and TwoPointFive (2021), made for a balanced set list containing fan favourites and new tracks. A lot of the high energy tracks from his latest effort, TwoPointFive, and their colourful visuals kicked off the show, setting the tone for the performance. Amine also made an effortless transition from “Spice Girl,” to playing “Wannabe,” by the Spice Girls, which had everyone who was not already dancing on their feet. The good vibes and positive energy generated by Aminé was definitely reciprocated by the crowd who’ll be looking forward to is next performance.
