I just got back from the Jamiroquai concert in Media City. It was fun. And I was impressed by how well organized it was.

The concert was supposed to start at 9PM, but it started half an hour late. The music was good, the weather was perfect, and everyone seemed to be having fun.

Jay Kay and his band entertained us for close to 2 hours, with hits like Deeper Underground, Dynamite, Don't Give Hate a Chance, and Cosmic Girl.

Lead singer Jay Kay is simply full of energy. He danced and jumped around the stage throughout the whole concert, wearing sweat pants, a sweater and one of his trademark funny-looking hats. No wonder he's so skinny!

All in all, it was good fun. Not the most amazing concert ever (I am sure Robbie Williams' concert will be much better, unfortunately I do not have tickets....I refuse to wait in line for 3 hours to get a ticket, no matter who is performing), but it was entertaining. My only disappointment (and it's a major disappointment) is that he did not sing Virtual Insanity, or Corner of the Earth. But it's OK Jay Kay, I forgive you. Your cuteness makes up for that misstep.

Oh and the food prices were a ripoff! 20 dhs for a hotdog? And it wasn't even worth it!

I know I told you that already, but I'll say it again. You don't seem too excited about the concert.
True, they could have played Virtual Insanity as it was their first hit...but I'm sure they had plenty of other good stuff under their hats!
(I'm trying to be funny with the hat case you didn't notice.)
