Akon also loves to shower himself with bottles of water and let female fans pull/tug on a certain male body part.
These are just a few of the many things I learned about Akon after attending his rather comical concert on Saturday night. Well, Sunday morning. The concert start time was 9 pm. What time did Akon begin? 1:30 am. 1:30. IN THE MORNING. I'm sure that wouldn't fly in America.

Never have I seen so much thrusting within a 3 hour time span. I especially liked when he changed up his moves a bit to begin a repetitive air smacking gesture while belting out Smack That.
Concert highlights included Akon's crowd surfing, and his stripping which eventually revealed his bright red boxer briefs. He also spent a few songs rolling around the crowd in a bubble and had a look of terror on his face the whole time.

My favorite part was when he surprised the audience with a guest duet performance with a Dominican version of himself. The little Latino man looked about 5 feet tall and was wearing a fur vest and jacket, despite it being about 85 degrees outside. Even so, the crowd went crazy while I just wanted to die laughing the whole time.

Overall, I enjoyed the concert. Surely not because Akon is the greatest artist, but because he's entertaining in a way that he doesn't even mean to be. Two thumbs up.
