As you guys know we had our Need for Speed Hot Pursuit On Tour event in San Francisco this past weekend and it was AMAZING! Everyone was having a really fun time playing NFSHP, taking photos in the photobooth, and watching two incredible musical acts.
Del the Funky Homosapien was the first to hit the stage and he definitely brought it. What I found interesting and cool about Del is how he transformed when he got up on stage. By this I mean, beforehand, Del was playing NFSHP rather intensely. He was glued to the screen and couldn’t be bothered. The whole time he was rather quiet and kept playing.
Once he got up on stage though, WOW, he was a brand new person! The moment the mic hit his hand, like I said, he transformed. It was amazing to see. He went through a number of songs and the crowd was mesmerized the whole time.
Immediately after Del, Mix Master Mike hit the stage. The crowd didn’t even get a break, not that they were too concerned =P Mike was like Del in that he was playing Hot Pursuit pretty much until he went on stage.
Once he stopped playing though, he went into making the crowd jump and dance.
In fact, a random break dancing competition started up, which only added to the night!
All in all, as I’ve said before, it was a great night. We’ll have a bunch of cool video coming from the event as well. Be on the lookout for something with Paul Pierce, Mix Master Mike and, of course, our recap video :) Given the response we’ve gotten from both NYC and CHI, I’m sure the SF video will be great!
