SHOW REVIEW- Mickey Avalon at Meadow Brook Music Festival on July 25 (with photos and video)

Rapper Mickey Avalon was back in town for some local shows and Motorcityblog was there to soak up all the activity.

Mickey kicked off his Michigan ride on Saturday, July 25 at the 7,700-capacity Meadow Brook Music Festival outdoor amphitheater in Rochester opening for Sublime with Rome. It was a sweltering 88 degree summer day in Michigan, and the crowd got the party started early in the parking lot with tailgating quite prevalent. Libations were in full effect and everyone seemed to be ready for a night of music and fun.

Mickey was first up on a four band bill. He hit the stage only a half hour after the gates opened so many spectators were still coming in as The Ave belted out songs from his short 20 minute set. This is all the time that is allotted for him on this summer tour package, but Mickey made the most of it. Mickey was without any stage dancers this time around and was joined only by his DJ on stage. His set was filled with hits such as Mr Right, Jane Fonda, and Stroke Me. Mickey also found time to perform one new song during his set and closed out with his most recognizable song for even the most lukewarm fan- My Dick. 

After his set Mickey stopped by the merch booth to sign autographs and pose for photos. It was hard to find Mickey's fans spread sporadically around such a large venue, but the post show meet and greet brought them together and a few dozen were their to show their love.

At the merch booth, Mickey had his new 5 song EP on a plastic download card comple with a lanyard.The artwork was designed by his own daughter. Very cool merch item for only $5.00.
