The ladies of Xscape returned to New Orleans and turned in a well-received performance at this year’s Essence Festival.
This was the group’s first trip back to the Big Easy since last year’s debacle where fans ended up packed in hallways, kept out of the group’s long-anticipated performance due to an error by venue management.
This year, it was smooth sailing.
It also was the group’s first major event as a reunited group since briefly changing their name to “Xscape3”–minus Kandi, who recently came back to the band.
“I feel like the fact that when we get out on the stage, and the love from the fans, that’s what makes us wanna do more shows together”, Kandi said in an interview with Nola.com.
