Will Smith shakes the room with a mind-blowing performance in Poreč
When the organisers announced a few months ago that the 2nd annual MTV SummerBlast would end the summer season with a bang, even they couldn’t imagine that the American superstar, movie icon, Grammy Award winner and recipient of a myriad other awards – Will Smith – would deliver such an earth-shattering performance! Boom Boom Boom Shake The Room echoed through Poreč while The Fresh Prince literally ascended to the stage on a specially designed platform amid the screams of thousands of fans and kicked off his comeback show, which will be talked about for a very long time.
He may have stayed out of the music business for the past fifteen-plus years, but you certainly couldn’t tell that from his performance. He owned the stage in a relaxed and fun way and provided a true musical spectacle together with his homie Jazzy Jeff and a backup band consisting of top notch musicians.
The eccentric rapper Tinie Tempah also professed his love for Croatia by stressing several times during his performance how much he liked being here, while the fans likewise showed their appreciation by singing and dancing in unison. One of last night’s standout performances included the energetic Far East Movement, who spiced up their performance with an attractive singer and a combination of multimedia and numerous other special effects. DJ Mike Perry from Sweden got the electronic finale of yesterday’s line-up underway, after which he turned over the stage to his fellow Swedes, the DJ duo Galantis. Their set capped off the second MTV SummerBlast, which had drawn over 15,000 visitors to the Peškera in Poreč over the course of two days. Highlights from the second day of the festival included performances by Luca Cara, Jimmy Clash, Avadox and the Croatian hip hop legend Phat Phillie.
