Robin Thicke wasted no time teasing the crowd, opening his set with the megahit and radio fixture “Blurred Lines.” Everyone seemed surprised by the move, but nonetheless satisfied singing and dancing along with the 36-year-old crooner. Singing “Lost Without You,” Thicke had no problem with the high falsetto notes of the song, but his voice was drowned out by the audience’s overpowering rendition of the chorus. “Take It Easy On Me” and “Wanna Love You Girl” kept the crowd moving as Thicke and his live band played ferociously and sweated profusely before slowing things down on “Dreamworld.” The song saw Thicke step behind the piano to serenade the crowd as he sang passionately about some of the beautiful wishes he’d love to have granted for the betterment of mankind. “Shooter” creatively transitioned into a reggae-influenced section of Bob Marley’s “No Woman, No Cry” with Thicke singing, “Everything’s gonna be all right…” The lyrics perfectly described Thicke’s rollercoaster ride of a show. ★★★☆☆
