Last night (August 20), the world’s most famous arena, Madison Square Garden was the place to be in NYC. The hottest ticket in town belonged to Starz’s hit drama Power for the season 6 premiere of the shows the final season. Everybody and they mama was in attendance to peep the first episode before it airs on this Sunday (August 25).
Before the screen rolled down, attendees were treated to a mini-concert from the shows Executive Producer, Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson. He wasn’t alone either, he was also joined by Snoop Dogg, Trey Songz, Case, Fetty Wap, Tony Yayo, G4 Boyz, YFN Lucci, Keni Burke, Alicia Myers, and Lil’ Mo.
Following the 50’s energetic performance, it was time to head back into the world of Power. After some brief words and thank yous from showrunner Courtney Kemp, she and the cast introduced the first episode. After the exciting premiere — which we will be recapping for you — the entire cast came back on stage one last time. They joined the Queens rapper and danced while he performed the show’s iconic theme song “Big Rich Town.”

Smith, Dean Winters, Tina Knowles-Lawson& Richard Lawson, Brandon Michael Hall, J.R. Ramirez, J.R. Smith, Rohan Oza, Lil Mama, and Remy Ma.
