Since her breakout with “Hot Girl Summer” in 2019, Megan Thee Stallion has ascended to the upper echelons of the hip-hop world. Yet, despite her rapid rise and previous gigs opening for major acts like Future and Dua Lipa, this Minneapolis concert was a milestone—her inaugural headline tour show. The anticipation was palpable, and the packed arena buzzed with excitement as fans awaited their rap queen.

Megan kicked off the night with her latest hit single, “Hiss,” which recently soared to No. 1 on the Billboard Global 200, marking a historic debut for a solo female rap song. The crowd erupted as she transitioned seamlessly into a 25-minute set that included high-energy performances of “Thot S—,” “Freak Nasty,” and the anthemic “Hot Girl.” Each track was met with thunderous applause and fervent sing-alongs, the audience feeding off Megan’s palpable energy.

The stage setup was relatively minimalist but effective in fostering an intimate yet electric party atmosphere. The circular stage design featured VIP sections on either side, packed with enthusiastic fans who danced and twerked along with every beat. This interactive setup brought an added layer of excitement to the already dynamic performance.

After a brief intermission for a costume change, Megan returned to deliver a powerful lineup of songs including “Plan B,” “Cognac Queen,” “Big Ole Freak,” and “Girls in the Hood.” Her latest single “Boa,” along with “Hiss,” hinted at a snake-themed concept for her upcoming third album, with serpent imagery frequently appearing on the large screens throughout the show.

However, the concert hit a lull midway through when Megan slowed the pace. She took a break from rapping to engage in light-hearted banter with fans in the VIP sections, pulling some onstage for a dance-off. While this segment was meant to be engaging, it felt somewhat disjointed and less engaging for those not in the immediate VIP area.

The momentum surged back with the third act, starting with “WAP,” her provocative collaboration with Cardi B that had the entire arena pulsating. Megan’s charisma shone through when technical issues with her in-ear monitors arose during “Cash S—.” Her playful interactions with the crew and audience during the brief pause showcased her charm and ability to keep the crowd entertained, even during unscripted moments.

Megan Thee Stallion’s debut as a headlining tour act proved to be an exhilarating mix of high-energy performances and genuine crowd interactions. Despite a few slower moments, her undeniable talent and connection with her fans were on full display. As her tour continues, there’s no doubt that Megan will keep bringing the heat, leaving her “Hotties” eagerly anticipating what’s next.
