The sexual. The sensual. The political. The empowerment. Jilly from Philly — you know her as R&B veteran Jill Scott — gave MGM National Harbor a potent dose of all four experiences on Saturday.
In the second half of her show at MGM National Harbor on Friday, Britney Spears grinds to a halt for a mock conversation with one of her dancers.
“Stop the show?” Britney asked. “We need to find a hot guy to dance with us?”
As it turned out, Team Britney already had a game volunteer named “Scott” lined up aside the stage, and he would soon provide some comic relief as a fetish object during a flashy performance of “Freakshow” from Britney’s 2007 album, Blackout.
R&B songstress Jill Scott hits MGM National Harbor on Saturday, July 14, and Sunday, July 15, during her Live in the Moment Tour, which includes 13 cities. Saturday’s show is sold out, but limited tickets remain for Sunday! Jill last released Woman, her most recent album, via Blues Babe and Atlantic Records in 2015.
Southern California reggae band Rebelution brought their brand of good vibes music to The Theater at MGM National Harbor last Sunday.
As 2017 closed, quite a few new concert venues opened their doors in the DC metropolitan area. So we got to thinking how concert venues are such invaluable friends to concert attendees (and bloggers)! With the close of the year, Parklife DC would like to start a tradition of recognizing great concert venues with our Venue of the Year Award.
We salute The Theater at MGM National Harbor as Parklife DC’s 2017 Venue of the Year for going above and beyond expectations in its first full year operating at National Harbor in Oxon Hill, Maryland.
The year 2017 was a good year for revisiting old friends as they returned to remind us that they truly still “got it.” In the past year, Parklife DC reviewed a great deal of musicians and bands, and the performances that really distinguished themselves often came as something of a pleasant surprise.
Tori Amos shined brightly as a chic, otherworldly presence seated at her pianos at MGM National Harbor on Friday, Nov. 3.
