Asher Roth dances with female crowd members at V Festival Stafford

His set also includes a cover of a Black Eyed Peas song

Asher Roth used his V Festival Stafford gig this afternoon (August 23) to try his luck with the bash’s female audience members – inviting several on stage to dance for him.

The Pennsylvania rapper showcased his debut album ‘Asleep In The Bread Aisle’ in The Arena, drawing a small but dedicated crowd to the tent.

“So we’re going out in London tonight. I’m just looking for some nice London girls to come and have a dance with. Any of you ladies like dancing? You wanna come up on stage?” Roth enquired before playing ‘She Don’t Want A Man’.


The rapper then handpicked a number of female fans from the audience to join him and his live band (consisting of a drummer, MC and DJ) on stage to dance to the track.

Roth clearly enjoyed the attention, and remarked several times throughout how much he likes English women.

Later in his set, he sang a cover of Black Eyed Peas‘ massive 2009 hit ‘Boom Boom Pow’, which went down well with the crowd.

However, it was Roth‘s breakthrough single ‘I Love College’, that drew the biggest crowd reaction, with many in The Arena swinging their arms from side to side and singing along during the track, which was his last of the day.

Asher Roth played:

‘La Di Da’
‘She Don’t Want A Man’
‘Be By Myself’
‘Boom Boom Pow’
‘I Love College’
