Drake @ Rupp Arena

February 24th, 2012 in Concerts, Featured

Drake, who is known to be a huge UK Basketball fan, took the stage at Rupp Arena for the first time, having been there a few times for basketball games in the past. With an explosive set with surprise guests and a huge stage with a barrage of lights, Drake’s first headlining arena tour is sure to put him even more on the map than he already is.

Shooting Notes:

Unlike all of his opening acts who allowed shooting from the pit, photographers had to shoot Drake from the soundboard. I came prepared with a 400mm lens, monopod, and stool to try to get above the hands of the crowd. Challenges aside, Drake is very expressive, so with a 400mm that got me in pretty tight, his emotion helped create some great shots.
