Concert Review: Welcome to the Free 6LACK Tour

Hundreds of fans filed into Corona Theatre, on Wednesday November 15, to welcome Sabrina Claudio for her first Montreal visit and to welcome back 6LACK since his last appearance at Osheaga this summer.

Half-Cuban, half-Puerto Rican, Miami native Sabrina Claudio was the opening act for the night. Only 21 years old and Sabrina Claudio’s lyrics are wise beyond her years. Even though she’s never been in love, she sings about it a lot. In an interview with Ebro Darden of Beats 1, Sabrina Claudio admitted that she’s a great storyteller. Most of her songs are based on situations that her friends and family have experienced and shared with her.

Sabrina Claudio released her debut mixtape, About Time, on October 5. The 40-minute, 12-track body of work has a cozy soulful Sunday type of vibe. That same vibe was transferred onto the stage at Corona Theatre. Dressed in a wide sleeve, burgundy colored velvet dress with a high split, Sabrina Claudio enticed the crowd, especially when she gave us a taste of her Latin moves. She opened her set with “Tell Me” off of her EP Confidently Lost, released in March of this year. Sabrina Claudio’s set lasted about 30 minutes, and she had everybody’s attention through it all with her angelic voice.

After a brief intermission, 6LACK’s DJ came on stage and got the crowd hyped for 6LACK’s performance. He got the crowd bumping to songs like “Work” by A$AP Ferg, “Goosebumps” by Travis Scott, and the latest banger “Gucci Gang” by Lil Pump.

6LACK came on stage sporting an all black tracksuit by Montreal’s flagship brand New Regime. He opened his set with “Never Know,” off his 2016 album FREE 6LACK. After doing a few songs, he paused and addressed the fans by introducing himself. “My name is Black, not Slack or 6-Lack, just Black.” The crowd went crazy when they heard those first few piano keys from his track “Ex Calling”. 6LACK brought Sabrina Claudio back out to perform “Belong to You”. After a few more songs, he closed the show with his biggest hit thus far, “PRBLMS”.

FREE BLACK tour continue, heading back to The States, where they will do two shows in 6LACK’s hometown of Atlanta, Georgia.
