V103's 4th Annual Summer Block Party
July 15, 2018
V103 celebrated 30 years with their 4th Annual Summer Block Party on Saturday, July 14, 2018 at the Hunting Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island featuring Keith Sweat, Ashanti, Ja Rule, Brandy, Ne-Yo, Tank, and Daley. Keith Sweat also surprised the crowd with a performance from Chicago’s own R. Kelly. The annual summer block party has become one of the hottest events of the summer.
Daley, a British recording artist and songwriter, kicked off the show. Daley’s soulful voice got the crowd ready. One of the highlights of the night for us was our favorite Tank. Tank performed several of his hits including “When We” which was at the top of the charts for 16 weeks. Tank also surprised fans with free tickets to the show to say thanks for their support. “I really enjoyed the show. It was class act to have so much great talent on one stage with Tank, R. Kelly, and Keith Sweat. They all rocked the house! To make it even better I was able to get a free ticket through Tank the General! Fun times” says lucky fan CeCe Jones.
Brandy also graced the stage with her power house vocals. “Moesha” is all grown up and she gave us her grown woman look. Next up was Ne-Yo, who never disappoints with his awesome sound and perfect dance moves. Ashanti and Ja Rule did a tag team performance taking us back.
The finale was another highlight for us. Keith Sweat, who is best known for songs such as “Nobody” and “Make It Last Forever,” had the crowd on their feet. Tank joined Keith on stage and there was a surprise performance by Chicago's own R. Kelly. The crowd went crazy. It was a great ending to a Hot night in Chicago. Happy 30th Anniversary V103!!!
