She! Me! Her! AKA Slaymar AKA Tamar & The Love & War Tour converged upon Atlanta last night at the Tabernacle. Tamar has to be one the hardest working women in the industry right now. First she toured with John Legend, then R Kelly, and now she is headlining her own tour. Tamar is successfully balancing marriage, motherhood, and career. So let’s go ahead and get into this review!
So…the concert was supposed to start at 7:30 PM, and we have learned from attending numerous other concerts, that these shows don’t start exactly at the time on the ticket. This gives people to time to get their seats, get food, and etc. So we weren’t too bothered that the concert didn’t start at exactly 7:30 PM, but after an hour of the DJ spinning records, we were ready to get the show the road! We are HERE for fashionably late, but come on Tamar, this was excessive. We won’t hold that against Tamar because we love her, but in the future let’s try and be on time especially when you have a standing room waiting.
After waiting close to 1 hr and some minutes, they finally broke down the DJ’s booth, and it was finally showtime! The show opened with one of our favorite songs, She Did That, which Tamar didn’t actually perform, it was an colorful opening sequence. The audience was entertained by Tamar’s male and female dancers.
The opening sequence was very nice, and it was well worth the 1.5 hr wait! Tamer emerges onto the stage on a turning platform and jumps right into her smash single, The One
Then she slid right into, Tip Toe
Then she performed a song that we are not familiar with, it must have been a bonus track because we weren’t familiar with, but whatever the name of the song was we liked it. So of course after being turnt up for the first few numbers, Tamar had to catch her breath, so she slowed it down and performed some of her slower songs from her album. Tamar set the concert up in such a way that she explained the story behind each song, and then performed each song.
Stay And Fight
Where It Hurts
Sound Of Love
During this song you can tell that Tamar is really not comfortable with a man other than her husband interacting with her in a sensual way, it was a good performance, but the seductive act needs a little work. After this Tamar did a quick outfit change and then she was ready to get to turn back up!
One On One Fun
Hot Sugar is one of our favorite songs off the album, and honestly the moment we were waiting for, during the performance Towanda, Trina, and Traci came out to turn up with their sister! This part of the concert had us turnt! Good job Tamar!
All The Way Home
The thing that we love about Tamar is that she is well connected with her Tamartians(fans), and during the concert she picked people from the audience to help her sing, Love & War, she really knows the value of her fanbase. We honestly could have gone without this part, but it was nice of her to make that connection with the Tamartians.
Love & War
After the initial annoyance of having to wait so long for the concert to start we were very impressed with the concert. Tamar didn’t disappoint with her vocals or performance. The show was awesome. We look forward to seeing what she will do when her budget is increased, we can clearly see that she is heavily influenced by the Queen Bey. We see that in the production, choreography, and costumes. We figure hey if your going to be influenced by someone, why not The Queen Bey! Tamar gave her Tamartians a show to remember. We thoroughly enjoyed it!
Final Rating 4.5/5
(Not Perfect Rating Because It Started Hella Late)
Whut say you?
