Captive parking. $12.00. Considering most L.A. parking fees are pretty reasonable, even the Chandler Pavilion UCLA has a lot of nerve charging for that charge for parking off-hours in what is largely an empty lot.

I wore Jeans and a Jacket. It was one of those audiences where it would be difficult to underdress..

Angelique Kidjo is going back to her West African roots and the audience rooted! Her incredible voice, brief social commentary and authentic West African dancing are tight! Sadly, she omitted her most popular English songs such as "Voodoo Child."...continued

Angelique was awesome. She is a ball of energy that can't be stopped. Everyone was on their feet dancing. This is the third time I've seen her perform and she never lets me down.

Quotes & Highlights

“[Kidjo’s] supercharged pipes have never sounded better, her irresistible energy and joie de vivre never more palpable … Kidjo reaffirms her global-diva credentials.” —LA Weekly 

Description

Angélique Kidjo is the most popular female African artist to emerge since her idol Miriam Makeba. Hailed by The New York Times for her “growls and swoops that link African tradition to American soul music,” Kidjo cross-pollinates the drum-based grooves of her native West Africa with Euro-pop, R&B, electronica and Latin and Caribbean music to create a potent Afro-funk fusion. Her albums regularly top Billboard’s World Music charts and have garnered four Grammy nominations and ecstatic reviews. She brings her exuberant performance style to Royce Hall, performing songs from Djin Djin, her new star-studded recording featuring guest performances by Alicia Keys, Joss Stone, Ziggy Marley and Peter Gabriel.

Los Angeles’s own offbeat garage band Dengue Fever opens the Royce Hall concert with their unique blend of ’60s Cambodian pop, American surf and psychedelic rock.
