Let’s start with another recap of LP’s US tour. On 14th May, in between concerts, LP took a flight home to be on set of her latest music video to ‘When We’re High’. Director is, once again, talented Chuck David Willis, who wrote such a comment under pic from the set: “This was the last set up of the shoot. It was a small crew at this location. I looked around and noticed it was the exact same people who were on my first video shoot with LP. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. So much love, talent, and creativity in that room. 1am somewhere in Hollywood”. I must say I’m really looking forward to seeing the finished work!
On the next day, LP played 4th concert of this tour at the State Room in Salt Lake City, UT. On a side note, I must say, Utah views & landscapes remind me a bit of Scotland and its mountains, especially Isle of Skye. As for the venue, formerly a children’s theater, The State Room is now a live music theatre located in the heart of downtown Salt Lake. Since opening in spring 2009, the 300-capacity venue has endeared itself to music lovers who appreciate the cozy repurposed church pew seating and open dance floor. Again intimate setting for the concert, can you imagine hearing “Forever For Now” from such a distance?! It’s like witnessing a real magic happening before your eyes…
Sadly this time I haven’t found anyone who would have want to write about the experience (yet), so I will post some of my favourite comments from Instagram, as there are few. Karen (@nanigirl77) wrote: “One of the greatest concerts I’ve seen to date. The range and talent of this amazing woman is incredible. So much respect for such a talented performer!”. Karen went to LP’s concert with her friend Trisha (@stackthestones) who wrote: “Sometimes I do things other than silks and silly circus stuff. Sometimes I go see AMAZING artists like @iamlpofficial and get to witness one spectacularly talented person perform! Such an awesome night!”.
Emilee (@eacrawley): “Seeing @iamlpofficial at The State Room last night was unreal! I didn’t know it was possible for her to sound better live than her records ? “. Veronica (@furronica): There’s something so phenomenal when you can sing and scream at the top of your lungs and you get drowned out with the crowd because they are doing the same thing. LP concert at the Stateroom ❤️”. Cassandra (@majusculemedia): “LP is a confirmed badass anomaly of light and sound. Top5 performance. Worth every penny’.
@oddacity: “LP WAS FREAKING PERFECT. She’s so great live, she’s so tiny but so powerful and I wouldn’t hesitate to see her again in the future ?❤️? “. Jamie (@your_poetic_nature): “There’s something beautiful about the way she left her heart on that stage. There’s something beautiful inside of her that is a thousand years old, what a gift that is to hold ?”. And finally things that LP fan will do to see her live… Rachelle (@rashellejohansson): “The list of things that would pull me away from my one week old baby is extremely short…lp. @iamlpofficial shot to the top of my best shows list, as I knew she would. She was worth the wait”.
And now summary of videos & interviews. Check LP’s youtube channel for new video from #BringeYourStrange series, this time from Holland. Radio 107,7 posted a performance of “Lost On You” by LP for EndSession at Elysian Fields, that was recorded back in February 2017 (for video click here).

Tickets to see LP live, along with 15 other bands, go on sale Friday, May 19 at 10:00 a.m. PT.
Very funny video of LP quizzing herself recorded for CBBC I believe in London can be found here. It’s just great and you will laugh hard. Video-interview for Sol Música 2017 (recorded in Madrid I believe) can be found here. LP gives great answers as always! Finally article/interview at The Salt Lake Tribune is here. Today LP is playing her 5th concert of the tour in Denver. PS. Thanks to AnnaBerry for her kind comment under my last post.
