Olivia O’brien put on an amazingly successful show. It sold out the House of Blues Chicago which is something that she's been doing often on this current tour.

I was excited to find out not only how she would sound live, but also too see what she would do on stage. She is the first artist I have ever seen do a show that made it feel like a tv show was being filmed in front of a live audience. It gave Hairspray the musical vibes!

The show doesn't start with your typical intro. Insteads Olivia does a little infomercials directed to some of the songs from her new album, with small graphics to match. I absolutely loved it and found it hilarious. I never would have thought of this amazing and creative idea!

Following that, a man's voice came over the P.A. system booming “And now...

Wavey Davey (Dave Bayley) was certainly on fire as Glass Animals headlined a solde-out show at the Alexandra Palace in London on November 19, 2021. Returning home to the UK following a successful US run, Glass Animals celebrated with over 10,000 screaming fans.

Before the show even started, concert-goers were launched into nostalgia through the set design. There were palm trees, a basketball hoop, diving board, neon signs, balloons, and one lovingly placed pineapple on the side of the stage. Massive screens laid out around the stage were lined with neon, with their shape suggesting old CRT TV's or similar computer monitor. Over the night, their graphics mimicked the 90s internet era, a symbolism found heavily throughout their 3rd studio album, Dreamland. As their set time approached, the computer screen counted down the remaining “download time”, with a glitch of the screen finally bringing the four bandmates onto the stage.

The audience was treated to a high energy opener with Life Itself...

Live music is back! And Juno Award Winner, Dizzy, is taking the show on the road for a limited 6 show tour across New York and Ontario.

Catching up with them mid-tour at London's Rum Runners, there was a small but very appreciative and vocal crowd of die hard fans that braved the cold night to see their "favourite band ever!" at an intimate setting.

As Dizzy took the stage for this stop in the "Spill My Guts Tour", brothers Alex, Mackenzie, and Charlie Spencer could be seen wearing matching outfits. Vocalist, Katie Munshaw joined them moments later and gave a little dance around the stage before taking her place at the microphone up front. You could tell from her smile that she was happy to be back on stage and able to perform for the bands fans that came to show their support.

The 17 song set contained a mix of songs from thier 2019...

The Backseat Lovers

The Backseat Lovers couldn’t have seemed happier on November 16th, 2021 in London. Making their international debut, this show marked a huge milestone in the band’s career and the sold-out crowd offered a roaring welcome to the UK. Under the glittering gold ceiling of the Moth Club, the band shone.

Entering the stage, the four Utah natives immediately started with a long instrumental intro before launching into Just a Boy. The intensity with which they began the show was juxtaposed almost immediately after with huge smiles from the bandmates. Lead vocalist Josh Harmon was visibly overwhelmed by the reception as he remarked that “We are losing our marbles. This is crazy!”. There was a clash as he performed with piercing stares and then broke into giddy smiles all night that somehow just worked.

It was a hot and sweaty night in the 350-cap room, with two band members choosing to go shirtless and having to bring a fan and towels on-stage to keep them cool. The audience certainly felt...

Thomas Headon

From behind a screen during the pandemic, TikTok breakout star Thomas Headon has built a massive fan following around his charming personality and catalog of self-written and produced music. He took that connection to a sold out show on Sunday, November 14, 2021 at Heaven in London.

His 15 song set included a blend of crowd-pleasing singles like Focus and Grace, new releases from his upcoming EP Victoria, and a cover of Blur’s Song 2. With almost everyone else in the world celebrating Taylor Swift’s re-recording of RED, Thomas covered We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.

The crowd support really seemed to inspire Headon. He appeared to be having just as much fun as his fans. Everyone was dancing around all night. He interacted with some of his fans directly, singing Happy Birthday to one and creating a TikTok with another from the stage. Between the balloon drop during Strawberry Kisses and the confetti ending of UrbanAngel1999, it would be impossible for fans who waited almost...

Fresh off two sold out headline shows at the Camden Assembly, Dylan was back in London on November 14, 2021 supporting Thomas Headon at Heaven.

Just four nights into her first proper tour, this 22-year-old Australian singer-songwriter’s stage presence didn’t give her novelty away. She warmed up the crowd with her high energy, jumping between the levels of the stage and acting out her “entire childhood dream” of being a rockstar.

Her 8 song set included You're Not Harry Styles (due out November 26), a partial cover of Guns and Roses' Paradise City, unreleased songs including No Romeo, and her single You Love Somebody Else. The night finshed out with Dylan performing Nineteen, her first single that amassed hundreds of thousands of views on TikTok during its promo period and more than 3 million streams on Spotify...

Madison Beer is taking the pop scene by storm. Currently on The Life Support Tour, which has been selling out most venues in North America. She recently came to House of Blues Chicago for a sold out show and killed it!

Her fans absolutely loved her you can feel that this love is reciprocated. Throught the show, she changed into several different fun outfits which can be a challenge while performing on stage! I absolutely loved them all and wish I could have shot all of them, she just looked stunning on stage.

Madison had two backup dancers on stage with her which added to the fun of the show, especially when she was in her box because her dancers would either dance around it or they would push it from side to side on the stage.

For this show, Madison did step off the stage a few times and did shake...

Maggie is someone I would love to see again. Her show was so good! Maggie Lindemann musical style can only be described as a "pop star goes rocker girl". She is just badass and sounds amazing live.

Even though she wasn't the headliner, it was obvious that she had strong support in the crowd. There was a general excitement when she took the stage. Her fans were well versed in her songs and so excited to see her perform, singing along to most of her set.

During her 3rd song “Crash and Burn”, a fan gave Maggie a bisexual flag and Maggie was so excited that she took it and danced with it on stage. The crowd loved seeing it, especially since the release of her recent single “She Knows it”. Overall, her set was a ton of fun and I loved the fact that...

Audriix was the opening support for Madison Beer on her “Life Support Tour” and she was incredible! Not only did Audriix sound amazing live but she also has a lot of energy and loves having fun on stage and watching the crowd sing along!

Something that I really fun to watch was that during her third song, which was about her ex fiance, not only did she have a light up ring but also so did a lot of her fans in the crowd. Their participation was really great to see during her set!

Towards the end of her set, she took a selfie with the sold out crowd behind her. I love seeing artists do because it’s a fun memory for them to have!

Overall Audriix was a ton of fun to see live! I absolutely loved...

Tour Review

2021/11/08

Holly Humberstone took the stage in London at the O2 Shepherds Bush on November 9, 2021. Backlit with scattered light, she started the show acoustically with Vanilla to a roaring, sold out crowd.

The night was filled candid conversations from Holly; on how difficult it is for her to talk about mental health without music, the difficulties of leaving behind her childhood, and her love-hate relationship with London. There was an overarching mood of appreciation, with Humberstone remarking that she’d been looking forward to this show for almost two years and couldn’t believe that the crowd was filled with “actual physical people”. She also made a light hearted jab at the now standard encore format and said she always “feels like the biggest idiot going off before...
