Last night I had the pleasure of
attending, excuse me I mean experiencing a Lil Uzi Vert show as he headlined his first show in his hometown of Philadelphia. As the 21-year-old self-proclaimed rock star hit his hometown stage, hundreds of phones illuminated the venue as fans tried to capture the moment as they screamed the lyrics “No I’m not Jordan, but I,am the goat!” The night was filled with women jumping over barricades to get to the stage, mosh pits and whole lot of dabbing. The atmosphere was filled with so much energy and every song was a sing-along as Uzi went through his catalog of raging hits. If you’ve never had the opportunity of being apart The Lil Uzi Experience I suggest you go and here’s 3 reasons why.
- Crowd Interaction

One thing you can guarantee is when at a Uzi show he will sing and dance with his fans all night. Numerous times throughout the night Uzi ran into the crowd yelling his lyrics in fans faces as they sung along and danced to his songs. Majority of the show Uzi was in the crowd instead of the stage, which allows you to enjoy the show with your friends and the artist you came to see, making Uzi Vert a fan favorite.
2.The Infamous Eye Roll and Dance
For those of you who follow Lil Uzi on social media you know what I mean when I say the infamous eye roll and dance. Uzi has one of a kind shimmy like dance moves and facial expressions and his fans love him for it. You may think that his little dance and eye roll is insignificant, but when Uzi started to dance and roll his eyes on stage the ladies in the crowd went crazy. Mobs of women rushed to get closer to the stage and one group of ladies even had to be escorted out after running on the stage to hug Uzi. Uzi was said to be feminine because of him rolling his eyes and how he dances but clearly those moves have a way with the ladies.
3. Lil Uzi Aka The Lil Surfer
For the sake of this argument we’re going to give Lil Uzi the nickname the Lil Surfer. Standing around five feet and four inches tall and about 130 pounds, Uzi makes for the perfect artist to crowd surf. As Vert performed his smash hit “Money Longer” Uzi stopped and stared into the crowd as if he seen someone he’s been looking for years and at the moment I knew what was coming next. Uzi went flying into the crowd like he jumped off a diving board. Fans embraced Uzi and carried the little rock star for a few minutes before throwing him back on stage. As he got back on stage I noticed a female fan actually crowd surfing herself. Crowd surfing is always fun but not every artist takes that leap of faith. At a Uzi show you can guarantee he’ll crowd surf and maybe you will too.
