Concert Review: Jamie Foxx at Sprint Center

The real Jamie Foxx may have never appeared at the Sprint Center on Saturday night. Instead, he performed as a few polished characters: the oversexed old-school R&B crooner, the feisty hip-hop hitmaker, and, briefly, the reincarnation of Ray Charles. Nearly as brief as Ray’s appearance were the moments of pure comedy. Foxx used his formidable stand-up and sketch-comedy chops only as segues to the next club jam. Despite the undeniable popularity of “Blame It,” Jamie Foxx the comedic emcee and Jamie Foxx the second coming of Ray were more convincing than Jamie Foxx the solo artist. Still, Jamie Foxx the solo artist looked like he was having the most fun.
