Over winter break, singer Post Malone performed a few incredible shows at Barclays Center in New York City.  People from all over the U.S. traveled over their Christmas break to see Post Malone sing many catchy, upbeat songs from his previous albums. 

“Post Malone is so talented,” said sophomore Allie Salzman.  “My favorite song of his is Psycho, I love listening to it!”

At the shows, Post Malone performed songs from his latest hit album Beerbongs and Bentleys, as well as from his previous album Stoney. Fans rocked out to his main hits, such as “Better Now,” “Rockstar,” and “Congratulations.” “Congratulations,” which features Quavo, and “Rockstar,” which features 21 Savage, held the number one spot on the Hot 100 Charts for a total of eight weeks.

Post Malone’s talent went a long way when he released these astounding songs, with his April 2018 Beerbongs and Bentleys becoming a RIAA-certified platinum album. He also recently released a hit new single called “Wow.” and it is quickly becoming immensely popular among thousands of fans around the U.S. 

People got tickets to see Post Malone on Dec. 19 in Brooklyn, and most of the seats were quickly sold. This show went so well that he went on to perform on Dec. 31 as well. Many fans were elated at the new that they would have a chance to get tickets for the second show if they were unable to attend the first one. Moreover, fans got to celebrate their New Year’s Eve listening to his music all night, and even got to see the clock strike 12 while watching him perform.

“I wish I got to go to Post Malone’s concerts,” said sophomore Abbie Garfin.  “They looked like so much fun!”

Other concerts in his tour include other artists like 21 Savage, SOB x RBE, and Future. However, Post Malone’s New York shows did not feature anyone else since there was only supposed to be one performance, but fans had a lot of fun there nonetheless. If he ever performs in NYC again, it is safe to say that the concert would be sold out incredibly fast. 

“I’m so jealous of everyone who went to Post Malone’s concerts,” said sophomore Sari Hartstein.  “I wish I could see him perform his amazing music!”

Post Malone was born in Central New York, so he himself was glad to make a visit to the New York when performing his tour. Fans loved his shows and are beyond excited to hear what new music he has in store for 2019.
