With nearly 10 years in the industry, countless hits penned for other artists, and a Grammy it’s only right that fans put some respect on Eric Bellinger’s name. And that’s exactly what happened Wednesday night, when Bellinger rocked a sold out crowd in Chicago.
The California native brought his Cuffing Season Tour to the Windy City for an experience fans won’t soon forget. The evening began for some with an exclusive meet and greet session during sound check. In a rather intimate setting, Bellinger performed a few songs before taking pictures, giving hugs, signing autographs, and carrying conversations with his beloved Bellringers.
After the meet and greet, fans headed downstairs to see the opening acts. Bellinger’s tour features Ye Ali, Garren, and Sy Ari Da Kid. Holding their own effortlessly, the opening acts one by one gained new fans in Chicago, before giving way to the main event.
Eric Bellinger took the stage in true superstar fashion reminding fans that he was single handedly reviving rnb. Bellinger’s set began with “CS3 Intro (Remix).” The song features the entire tour lineup and ironically enough, it’s a hit. Equipped with a wardrobe change and pyrotechnics, Bellinger took fans on a journey through his career by way of a planned set list and some requests from the audience. Fans reminisced with songs like “Or Nah” from 2014’s The Rebirth and enjoyed more recent favorites like “Apple Berry NaNa” and “Moist.”
The night came to a close with a unforgettable performance of “Material” from Bellinger’s November release Cuffing Season 3. As the Cuffing Season Tour makes its way across the country to wrap up its final dates Bellinger and his fellow performers have something to be proud of and fans have memories for a lifetime.
