Joe Louis Arena erupts as Lil Wayne takes the stage followed by fireworks and pyrotechnics. Lil Wayne’s stage set was, without a doubt the most elaborate of the entire festival. Of course there was a live band, which couldn’t be missed on top of the skateboard park built on the stage. If the ramps weren’t enough with the skaters pulling off tricks as they crisscross one another then there was the 50 foot high holographic backdrop the was seemingly ever changing. One of the most memorable moments of Lil’ Wayne’s performance was when he stopped to address the crowd he began “Who out there gets high? (Crowd Cheers) For those of you that didn’t cheer, didn’t raise your hand and didn’t say anything, you are role models. You are my hero. You posses a strength I will never have. But for those of you that and are just like me, this song is for you!” With the stage taking on a life of its own this performance of the Americas Most Wanted Music Festival was the best.
