If there is anything I now understand about a Calvin Richardson and Tyrese concert, they will definitely make security work for their paycheck during their performance. Between screaming fans reaching for a pant hem and stiletto clad hopefuls wishing to be the chosen lady picked to join their fantasy man on stage, I had to give a shout out to God for helping me to come out in one piece without getting trampled by this excited audience. To get a visual taste of the spoken energy, check out our pics from their Atlanta show. Special guests also included Idris Elba, Da Brat, Tank and Akon.
