Supafest 3

Supafest 2012, Sydney, Australia; Chris Brown, Kelly Rowland, Lupe Fiasco, Naughty By Nature and more

Chris Brown

It was a hot crowd, despite more controversy than usual for a music festival on Australian soil.
ANZ Stadium at Homebush, Sydney, was the venue.
This concert was very loud in buzz leading up to the event, as well as in actual decibels, with quite a few folks likely to be tempted to get their hearing tested soon after the Sydney leg is over.
ANZ Stadium is a licensed premise, and many in the crowd enjoyed a drink no doubt.
As always with large concerts, there's a range of reviews coming in, and we'll be offering a more detailed report in the coming days and fan feedback continues to come in.
Headline Act was Chris Brown.
Chris Brown profile...
Mutli-Platinum selling global superstar, and recent Grammy Winner CHRIS BROWN is returning to Australia to bless the stages at Supafest. His incredible live performances have earned him a reputation as one of this generation’s most electrifying male performers, and his latest single “Turn Up The Music” which debuted at #13 on this week’s Aria Charts is proof that his star continues to rise. The track will feature on the forthcoming album “Fortune”; the eagerly anticipated follow-up to his critically acclaimed 2011 release F.A.M.E which featured the massive world wide hit singles “Look At Me Now”, “Yeah X 3” and “Beautiful People”. He first burst onto the scene in 2005 with his #1 selling, double platinum smash hit single “Run It”, and instantly drew comparisons to Michael Jackson, Usher and even Stevie Wonder. His gold selling debut album “Chris Brown” was released to critical acclaim and saw his star rise swiftly, prompting Vibe Magazine to name him “The Future Of R&B”. Chris firmly established himself as an R&B and Pop Tower of Power with a huge worldwide fan base to match. The accolades continued in 2007 with his sophomore Top 5 Aria Double Platinum album “Exclusive” which spawned the smash hits “Wall to Wall” (Platinum), “With You” (Double Platinum), “Kiss Kiss” (Double Platinum) and “Forever” (Triple Platinum). The release of “Graffiti” in 2009 cemented his chart topping power with the lead single “I Can Transform Ya” which reached platinum sales.
