The ‘Hostile Takeover 2012’ Tour – Week One [Recap]

Mar 28 2012

Diamond Ballroom - Oklahoma City, OK

Oklahoma City, OK – 3/28/12

The fourth show on Tech N9ne’s “Hostile Takeover 2012” Tour proved to be quite the night for both the fans and the artists. The always unpredictable and exciting crowd in Oklahoma City had moshpits, crowd surfing, and everything in between as Prozak unleashed his notoriously aggressive live performance.

Stevie Stone had fans getting buck while ¡MAYDAY! turned the females into crowd surfers with “Hardcore Bitches”. Machine Gun Kelly had his own dose of insanity thanks to his loyal fans looking to go wild on stage with him. Ending the night, Krizz Kaliko joined Tech N9ne in Oklahoma City for headlining set that saw both emcees dish out some of their biggest hits, including the crowd favorite “I’m A Playa”.

Tech N9ne and company may have been in town to perform, but in the end, the crowd proved to be as much a part of the show as the artists.
