Akon took the stage at Evergreen Hall Sept. 19

Akon’s intimate performance at Evergreen Hall on September 19 was a night that Chilliwack fans won’t soon forget.

As the long line-up of eager Akon fans filtered in, everyone was entertained by ground-shaking music from the DJ and the special guest openers, including Peter Jackson.

The crowd had a great time as Karl Wolf performed his top solo hits like Africa and Ghetto Love, and they enjoyed the harmonic performances of Wolf’s new group B.A.E. (Be All Equal).

Fans couldn’t contain their excitement as Akon took the stage. Everyone sang along in unison as Akon performed all of his fan-favourites, including Don’t Matter, I Wanna Love You, Dangerous, Right Now and Sexy Chick.

The relatively small venue allowed Akon to get up close and personal with his Chilliwack fans, reaching out to them as they danced to his soulful vocal melodies and the hard-hitting drums.

Akon stuck around after the show for a meet-and-greet with the VIP fans.

Akon’s promotional tour is pumping up the fans for the release of Stadium, his newest multi-album project. Visit akon.com to sign-up to be one of the first to download Akon’s Stadium app and to listen to tracks from the forthcoming album.
