Miguel at South Side Music Hall

Published on August 18th, 2015

Wow… that’s the best word to describe the sold out show that Miguel put on at the South Side Ballroom recently. His Wildheart Tour brought on a combination of smooth vocals, a tight band, and impressive dance moves, that were much like a satisfying drink of cool water. The second he stepped on the stage¬† I knew that I was in the presence of massive talent.

Stepping out on stage dressed in all white, he opened the night with The Thrill. Before then making a smooth and literally seamless transition into Simple Things and then Sure Thing. Was just a taste of what the night had in store. As Miguel continued thru his set, it was clear how rehearsed and precise every single beat was. It all had a purpose, and every song was made to mix into each other. It was difficult to hear when one song would end and another began.

Over the course of the show Miguel touched on majority of the new tunes from his latest album Wildheart. But his set was jam packed with 24 songs that spanned his entire catalog. Often leaning into the crowd to feed off the energy, teasing and tempting the screaming women in the front row. Magic Mike has nothing on Miguel.

He saved his hits for last like a smart performer often does, wrapping up the show with Coffee, How Many Drinks and his biggest hit Adorn. I have a feeling that when he returns to Dallas in the future. He will be playing a much much bigger venue. I’ve heard comparisons to Prince. Not sure that I would say he is. But he’s his own style, his own legend in the making, and one hell of a performer. I encourage everyone to see him if they have a chance.
