    My sole reason for going to the Apollo was to see K. Michelle. She or BET canceled her performance. So, I had to settle for Asap Rockey. I am not a fan of his, but Kiki Sheard was cool!

    Make sure they aren't having a bogus night like tonight where there was no boo-ing because of a Broadway tribute. I wish I could get a refund.

    If you're way scared of heights don't book upper mezz section as the incline is scary steep and uncomfortable. Oh and there are about 10,000 steps up manually. In other not for the faint of heart.
