Post Malone left fans speechless at Nassau Coliseum after his Runaway Tour exceeded all expectations on February 19th. Performing a full set list of his top hits to a crowd of all ages, it is safe to say Post Malone did not disappoint. Joined by Swae Lee, Tyla Yaweh, and even a special appearance by Lil Tecca, the artist put on an unforgettable performance.
The Runaway Tour began after the release of Post Malone’s latest album, Hollywood’s Bleeding. After concluding the first leg of this tour in November, 2019, Post Malone announced that the Runaway Tour would be continued for a second leg. Fans, like me, who were unable to attend the first tour leg were ecstatic after hearing Post Malone would visit their cities once again.
Post Malone opened up the show with “Hollywood’s Bleeding,” followed by other hits from his latest album, including “Saint-Tropez,” “Goodbyes” and “Allergic.” The crowd was pleased when he performed the greatest hits from his previous albums, as well. These included “Better Now,” “I Fall Apart,” and “Wow.”
The audience’s exuberant cheers couldn’t be contained as the opening lyrics to “White Iversion” filled the arena. Malone even took the time to thank his fans because “White Iversion,” was the song that “changed his life.”
In addition to the dance moves and theatrical lights, Post Malone even brought out his guitar to play his acoustic song, “Stay.” However, the crowd didn’t remain mellow for long as Malone smashed the guitar in the middle of his flawlessly energetic performance.
Swae Lee also made his way back onto the stage to perform “Sunflower,” a duet that was featured in the Spider-Man: Into the Spider Verse movie.
Malone strategically chose to perform the most popular songs from his three albums, prompting fans in the crowd to shout every word to every song. However, I was slightly disappointed when my favorite songs from Hollywood’s Bleeding, “A Thousand Bad Times” and “I’m Gonna Be,” were not performed because they aren’t the most popular songs on the album. His incredible voice and impressive performance made up for it, though.
Post Malone concluded the night with his iconic song “Congratulations,” leaving the audience chanting for “One more song!” on another successful night of the Runaway Tour.
