Review: Drake shows off hard, soft sides at the Tampa Bay Times Forum in Tampa



From the raucous squeal of the high-heeled young crowd of 12,179 at the Tampa Bay Times Forum Wednesday — best-looking audience of the year right here, boys and girls — the nimble-lipped lyricist Drake, whether singing or spewing wicked rhymes, has concocted a slick formula adored by a multiculti mélange.

Dressed casually all in blue, and soon enough showing off his guns in a tank top, Drake played likable host, all the while gamboling on a wild multi-tiered stage that featured two giant rings (a live band lurked in the bottom one) plus a massive LED screen. If you're thinking "2001," you're close, and yet Drake, a former Nickelodeon cutie-pie, sold it as if he too was amazed by the grandeur of the evening.
