When McKnight took the stage at approximately 10:30, there were deafening screams from female fans.
Some even rushed the stage to touch the entertainer.
His opening songs included Don't Stop, and renditions of Stevie Wonder's Overjoyed and Nat King Cole's When I Fall in Love.
The screams got louder when McKnight performed his hit song Only One For Me. He then surprised a fan with a bouquet of roses, serenading her with Crazy Love.
Although some inside the semi-packed venue enjoyed his set, others were critical.
"I think he is a better singer than a performer, he speaks too much between songs. We didn't pay to hear a conversation, we paid to listen to him sing," said a male patron.
McKnight performed other crowd favourites such as Back at One, One Last Cry and Anytime.
Reggae singer Romain Virgo has been showing maturity as a live performer with each additional show. He delivered Michael Bolton's Soul Provider, the originals Taking You Home, Love Doctor, Don't You Remember and R Kelly's When a Woman Loves.
Dub poets Nomaddz also delivered a tight set.
