We attended Justin Timberlake FutureSex/LoveShow on Saturday and it was my best concert going experience in the Seattle area to date. A lot had to do with the location. The Tacoma Dome being an enclosed building and a sports arena has the right combination of acoustics and availability of vending services. I attended  Eminem’s Anger Management 3 and Kenny Chesney’s The Road & Radio at the White River Amphitheatre and Qwest Field respectively and both locations were suffered from lousy acoustics because they were open air locations. 

We missed the opening band which didn’t bother me once it was confirmed that it was not going to be Timbaland. JT’s performance was top notch, he not only performed the hits from both albums but also threw in some unexpected surprises like his verses from Gone and Dick in a Box. After the audience was done singing along to the latter, he joked “You guys watch too much YouTube”. I was amused that he didn’t say “You guys watch too much SNL”. He also mentioned that it had just won an Emmy that night. “Only in America,” he laughed. 

I was surprised to notice that audience seemed to have been an older crowd than the crowd from Bumbershoot. That said, all those JT fans in their 20s and 30s still scream like teenage girls so I’d suggest some ear plugs if you’re ever thinking of attending one of his concerts.
