The line up sounds wack, Keri Hilson is a dime piece though. Akon is ok…

two things here,,,1) i thought Wild Bill’s was a country bar,and 2) i thought racism was running rapid now-a-days… looked to me like a WHOLE BUNCH of white people in the audience screaming and going crazy over a bunch of black performers(kind of like a basketball or football game)…which is great,,, i can’t wait to see the day when a bunch of black folks are in the audience for, lets say, George Strait or Brooks and Dunn…or maybe at a hockey game…oh yeah, didn’t we vote in a black guy for president too.. well, at least half black, that is… racism on the rise, i don’t think so.. i’m not sure folks should be able to use the race card anymore.. i’m glad we’ve made it to this point in America!!!!!

As you can see Jack bull, it’s the younger generation that’s come the realization that racism is should not be an issue. It’s our public serviceman that are still racist.

Yall are funny big boom only thinks it is wac cause Joe buddens or some other none selling NY artist didn’t get to shine. And to Jack bull me and my friends are black and have been to Linkon Park, Hockey Games and even a Jimmy Buffet Concert. We are coming around and trying new things. P.S. Wild Bills had to start supporting hiphop because country night could only sustain 2 out of 7 days. The youth will always win that one. lol Take care yall

Racism, We off that! The only thing we care about (The Younger Generation) is respect, as long you can respect our ideals, what we stand for, our music, and our drive nobody cares about race, religion, male, female, or sexual orientation

Enter your comments herejack bull, white people have always enjoyed black entertainers! They just don’t want to live next door to them or have them marry their daughters. :-)

I believe white’s enjoy “black” music more than black’s enjoy “white” music. That is what I see. And Jackbull….the race card will always be played as long as someone needs to use it (as an excuse).

Okay Lil John and Akon great but all the other stuff not…too much filler in between acts but besides that it was great! Afterall I was backstage and that was the one of the best parts of it all. I recommend having it at a real venue where your seat is your seat; had some body trying to pull me out of a seat that they “saved” lol…but it calmed down. Side area for VIPS a bit small; they shouldn’t have bothered with putting seating area in there. Wild Bills you cool but if this thing is any bigget than it was this year it needs to be somewhere else. Aight I’m outta here….

I had a blast at the show! Lil Jon rocked out…Keri was a total surprise ever! And Akon threw himself into the crowd, not once, not twice,but three times!
Who knew he liked to mosh? I’ve been to a lot of different shows with different genres of music, but this was one of the hottest parties I’ve been to in a looong time.
And the best part. Akon stopped to chat with me in the lot. Seemed like a genuinely nice guy.
Kudos to the Beat this year!!!!!
