Tyler the creator the observatory
“48” – tyler the creator – december 30
Last Saturday night in Santa Ana, The Observatory Orange County hosted a stacked bill that included a headline appearance by Tyler, The Creator, as well as opening sets by breakout boy band BROCKHAMPTON, The Internet’s Steve Lacy, and indie up-and-comers Clairo and Bane’s World. I saw the show and have been itching to tell you about it, particularly since it’s been a few months since my last concert review. Here’s a short rundown of what happened.
I’ve previously mentioned on this website that I’ve never found myself a major Tyler, The Creator fan, but that changed after the release of his most recent album, Flower Boy. Given how much I enjoy a lot of the songs on that album, and Tyler’s reputation as a fantastic singer, I was expecting a great performance.
Unfortunately, I was unable to see Bane’s World due to traffic, but Taco had a great DJ set and Steve Lacy’s smooth guitar work was a pleasure to hear live. Once BROCKHAMPTON took the stage, the energy level in the room skyrocketed. The newly famous boy band, dressed in their signature orange jumpsuits, sparked several mosh pits by reciting hits from each of their three 2017 albums, including “BOOGIE,” “STAR,” and “GOLD.”

Alexander O’Connor, better known by his stage name Rex Orange County, told the crowd, “This is the first time I’ve ever been to San Diego in my entire life.” Growing up, O’Connor was given the nickname “The OC,” which became his stage name.
The show kicked off with Radiant Children, an R&B six-piece that grooved and funked their way through the first set, with lead singer Fabienne Holloway channeling her contemporaries Solange and Janelle Monáe, as well as her predecessors Lauryn Hill and Erykah Badu, and confidently singing each song.
The roadies started setting up for Rex Orange County as soon as Radiant Children left the stage, and the crowd erupted in applause when they saw a blue sky backdrop with an apricot and peach in the centre.
Rex Orange County, best known for his collaborations with Tyler, the Producer, has released two albums, the most recent of which was “Apricot Princess,” as well as singles including “Loving is Simple,” “Best Friend,” and “Sunflower,” all of which were major highlights of the show.

Indulging the county with which he shares his stage name in a soulful fantasy of apricot princesses and corduroy dreams at venue Observatory O.C. on August 12, 20-year-old songwriter and recording artist Rex Orange County said leading into 2017 single “Best Friend,” indulging the county with which he shares his stage name in a soulful fantasy of apricot princesses and corduroy dreams.
Alexander O’Connor, a native of the United Kingdom and a former student of London’s BRIT School, adopted the stage name Rex Orange County from the nickname “OC” — a play on his last name provided by a former music teacher.
In between appearances at music festivals throughout the United States and Canada, Rex headlined shows in Toronto, Washington, D.C., New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, Vancouver, Seattle, Portland, Santa Ana, and Los Angeles, with support from Arthur on the East Coast, Cuco on the West Coast, and Vegyn on the West Coast.
His live set, which included songs from his debut album “bcos u will never be free,” his sophomore album “Apricot Princess,” and a series of singles and covers, demonstrated his concentration on musically playing to the best of his and his band’s ability, but lacked in performance quality.
My experience at the tyler, the creator show ft
The historic Observatory North Park San Diego is located in the heart of San Diego’s most hipster-indie-urban community, North Park. A 1,100-seat venue that hosts concerts of all kinds of music with excellent sound and visuals. This venue is a favorite among music fans of all genres not because of its air conditioned floors, strategically positioned stages in the pit, or the old chandeliers on the ceiling, but because of the amazing talent that performs there every week.
Originally, the Observatory North Park was a theater dedicated to opera performances. Lyric Opera San Diego owned and operated the historic building, which was built in 1928 as a 731-seat theatre, until 2005, when it reopened after substantial renovations. Lyric filed for bankruptcy in 2011 and stopped broadcasting. Judge Margaret Mann of the United States Bankruptcy Court approved the sale of the theater to David Cohen, Bobby Jones, and the Verant Company, which owns a range of San Diego restaurants, in 2013. The Verant Group sold the North Park Theater to SD Observatory LLC for an undisclosed amount in 2015. Live Country, the world’s largest ticket seller, has announced plans to acquire both the San Diego and Santa Ana Observatory locations.
