Greg Kot of the Chicago Tribune’s Metromix was on hand for Common’s concert Wednesday (June 1) at the House of Blues. Kot writes, “In the past, Common has shared his stage with old flame Erykah Badu and West. This time, he was firing solo, and he stalked the lip of the stage, his right arm flicking outstretched hands without missing a syllable. The audience already sounded well-versed in ‘Be’, and Common used the fans’ voices to shout out the choruses to new tracks such as ‘Go’, ‘Testify’ and ‘Faithful’. Common brought an urgency that was well beyond the well-crafted recordings, as if testing the songs’ limits.”
