Ryan Leslie – “Ups & Downs” (Les Is More Tour Version) | Music Video

After dropping his Les Is More album in October 2012, Ryan Leslie gives us the tour experience with his latest visual for “Ups & Downs”.

Taking us behind the scenes of his tour, R. Les proves to be a passionate artist that is all about supplying his fans with a memorable concert to accompany his melodic music and charismatic nature.

Speaking at the start of the video, we hear Ryan explain to his team how important it is to deliver the best performance possible during his shows. He says: “Whatever they pay, that’s the biggest show I can do… I need all these people to go and tell all their friends ‘Man I went to the Ryan Leslie concert, it was awesome.'”

The Grammy nominated singer-songwriter and producer then takes us on a visual trip, as we see him giving his all on stage in front of screaming crowds, surrounded by his live band and close associates. He even lets the cameras record what his life is like away from the fans and the spotlight, offering us a glimpse into his backstage routine and the various people he meets everyday – including a brief clip of his family.

Given that the man himself is set to appear in concert next month in the UK, this video definitely serves as a preview of what is in store for those lucky ticket holders come February. And if you haven’t got your tickets yet, there may still be a few left here.
