RECAP: Miguel Presents The War & Leisure Tour (New Haven, CT)

Miguel, singer and producer from California, made his epic return to New Haven, Connecticut. It was a special night for the artist because he had never played at the College Street Music Hall, the venue that held the event. Fans were given an unforgettable performance on a historic night.

Joining Miguel on tour is TDE’s own, SiR. SiR’s new project, November is a melodic, soulful piece that was a huge success. The project was personal and had no help from any other artists except for the song, “Something Foreign,” that featured label mate, ScHoolboy Q. Top Dawg Entertainment’s (TDE) taste in artists have been undeniably superior and as of late, the addition of a new R&B prospect shows they don’t intend to slow down. SiR’s performance was a sample of what’s to expect on The Championship Tour this summer with the rest of his TDE family.


A cold, windy night didn’t stop thousands of fans from waiting in a huge line to gain entry. An incredible live band assisted Miguel in recreating hits from all his previous albums. He performed songs like “All I Want Is You,” “Arch & Point,” and “Adorn.” He also performed songs he was featured on like “Lotus Flowerbomb” and “Power Trip.” A venue full of screaming women made it nearly impossible to talk to the person next you. The vocalist sang beautifully, sounding exactly how he does on record. His skills as a guitar player are also under appreciated. Miguel joined his live band to bring his own twist of strings to the music. A great performance by a great artist.
