Bone Thugs N Harmony performed for a crowded theatre at The Bourbon in Lincoln, Nebraska on Thursday, December 14, 2017. When Krayzie, Layzie, Wish, and Flesh-n-Bone were first introduced, no one noticed that one member of the group was missing. However, later on two attendees were overheard talking. One of them asked, “Where is Bizzy Bone?” The other replied, “I have no idea.” Apparently in December 2016, he stepped away from the group over infringement. He has not returned since, and this has not been publicized widely. More importantly, their Facebook page does still list Bizzy as a current band member. It even includes him on their cover photo. This was slightly confusing and what would have been an otherwise amazing concert, left a lot more to be desired.
Bone Thugs N Harmony did grace the stage at 10 pm and began the night with “Handle The Vibe” from their album The Art of War. They followed their opener with the next song on that album, “Look Into My Eyes.” Opening with the two songs felt like a throwback to 1997. Among others, they performed the classic click-click boom-boom of “Thug Luv” that featured Tupac Shakur. This was an amazing feat, considering most lyrics from the song were by Bizzy and Tupac.
Despite Bizzy Bone being absent, the other four members presented well and gave attendees an entertaining night. It ended with dozens of women being invited on stage to dance, and when one of them attempted to grind on Krayzie Bone, he simply turned away and lit up a cigarette.
