Despite the NY Mets lost to the Pittsburgh Pirates, the fans still won with a post game concert by R&B crooner Ne-Yo.
The New York Mets have been playing good baseball since making some key trades to help with hitting. Leading up to Saturday evening August 16th, the Mets winning streak was snapped and they lost to the Pirates on Friday night.
A beautiful night for baseball, Citi Field was packed! Fans were hoping for a 2 for 1 – a Mets victory and a Ne- Yo concert. Well after an incredible game that lasted 14 innings, some Mets fans were too heart broken to stick around. But the crowd that stuck around were treated to a great show by Ne-Yo.
The singer and songwriter performed a number of songs from past and present in a number 24 Official NY Mets Jersey. So Sick, Sexy Love, She Knows, Let’s Go, Because of you, “Miss Independent“ Coming With You, Congratulations and Time of Our lives to name a few.
During the show a lucky fan near the stage exchanged his NY Mets hat for Ne-Yo’s trademark fedora. Ne’Yo finished show wearing the Mets hat.
If were not at Citi Field for the show, below is a short video clip to give you a little taste.
