Austin Post, better known as Post Malone has been touring for his debut studio album, Stoney. Thursday night, he made a stop at The Royal Oak Music Theater.

Opening with the song “Too Young,” the crowd was jumping up and down as Post Malone hyped them up for the rest of the night. Next, Post sang his hit single “Deja Vu” as fans belted out the chorus featuring Justin Bieber, “Tell me is that deja vu?/’Cause you want me and I want you.” Taking a break from some of his more upbeat songs, Post sang an acoustic cover of his song “Feeling Whitney” followed by “I Fall Apart” and “Leave.” With the screen behind the 22-year-old artist displaying graphics during the songs, the vibe brought fans to their feet. Picking the tempo back up, he sang his new single, “Rockstar” featuring 21 Savage, that fans seemed to have liked. After more hype songs from album including “Go Flex” and “Money Made Me Do It,” the show ended with two of his biggest hits, “White Iverson” and “Congratulations.”

After the show, fans lined up behind barricades next to the tour bus and waiting for Post to leave. As the crowd grew, so did security attempting to contain fans and their high energy from the show. After about 25 minutes of waiting, Post Malone was escorted out has he walked by touching hands and hugging fans that broke through. Disappearing into a car, fans followed  and got a quick meet and greet while the car was stopped at a light.
