Yesterday (2nd September) LP was in Nashville for Live on the Green Music Festival in Public Square Park. Live On The Green is produced and presented by the local radio station Lightning 100, as a free outdoor music festival. Since its inception in 2009, more than 300,000 fans from 29 states and 10 countries have attended the festival. LP attended Live for The Green for the first time in 2014, when she was promoting ‘Forever For Now’. You can still find few videos from that year. But let’s get back to 2017 and first, let’s start with an interview that LP did yesterday for Lightning 100.
It turns out, that LP is leaving for Europe already today, first she is heading to Paris to do a video to ‘No Witness’! Excited?? I know I am. Interview was conducted via Instagram live, I have managed to save it, and you can watch it on my youtube, here. Then LP took the main stage from 6.30 to 7.30. Now, let’s do my favourite part – quotes after witnessing LP live. Peter (@peter_with_the_goodhair): “First time hearing @iamlpofficial and she was amazing! It is like Mick Jagger and Janis Joplin had a baby. She is more than that, though. An absolute original. Count me in as a new fan ?”.

Mandi (@mandi_fitgypsy): “Blown away by LP’s performance tonight! What a unique talent!”. Amanda June (@amandajunemusic): “Whoever wasn’t at the @iamlp show at @LiveOnTheGreen today missed out big time, one of the best artists IN THE WORLD ?????”. And a quote that shows how long way LP has made to arrive where she is now. @indiebizbeasts: “Stoked to see @iamlpofficial so up close. I remember seeing her play in front of 50 people 6 years ago”. Tyler (@tyvysaur): “@iamlpofficial fucking killed it last night!!!”. Ashley (@ashlicalifornia): “LP: a tiny, feisty, Mick Jagger-esque powerhouse. LOVE ????”.
Trin (@mrstnwatson): “LP killed their entire performance!!! If you haven’t heard of her, you’re behind!! She’s getting bigger and bigger!”. @lightning100: “We are speechless. @iamlpofficial’s voice is out of this world!”. Jennifer (@jrgelvin1980): “LP @ #liveonthegreen2017 wow! This girl can sing! And WHO can whistle like that!!???????”. Andrea (@andrea_galarza): “Okay so she’s a bad ass bitch, oh my I’m a true fan now for LIFE of these two bands. I loved their performance and I would have to say the best besides Portugal.The Man. @iamlpofficial looks just like BOB DYLAN and the @futureislands were fucking great and I hate that my phone died. #LOTG2017”.
Heather Maize (@got6chix): “@iamlp killin it w Elvis style, Dylan vibe, and vocals to make Callas envious!”. Jess (@jessjesswarman): “Not very often do I get an amazing opportunity such as this to see such a talented artist up close and personal. @iamlpofficial put on a phenomenal show! Bowing down to the talent I just witnessed”. Ben (@dodger5910): “@aimeejeaux wrote this caption because I’m speechless and @iamlpofficial is everything, I tell you. EVERYTHING. #pickupmyjaw”. @boxcarjosh: “God she can sing”. Heather (@heatherbyrd): “This angel is a gift from the heavens. She is tremendously talented and so generous to spend so much time meeting her fans. Thank you @iamlpofficial!! #liveonthegreen #lotg2017”. Heather also shared great video of LP going to her fans during ‘Someday’. Check it here!
Some lucky fans got to meet LP prior and after her show. Madeline (@musicbymads11): “This was the most genuine conversation with the woman who changed @ajthestellarkid and my life. We are both forever grateful for this opportunity to meet someone so talented and amazing!! Thank you LP for being there for us and for giving us the hug we both needed. You made 27 hours through a hurricane SO worth it. I will always cherish this moment. Thank you for taking the time to hold my hand, kiss my cheek and listen ❤”. Aj (@ajthestellarkid): “Best blurry pic ever .. I just talked with this beautiful soul who made such an impact on my life with her music and heart. Thank you LP. Forever love you ❤”.
Here’s what Beth wrote about Hudson, one of the youngest LP fans and you should remember him, as LP did a shout out to him earlier this year in a video and last night as well. @bethfromm: “And of course he got to meet his favorite singer of all time, @iamlpofficial! I mean he’s five, but his taste is pretty darn impeccable. She’s at the very top with the likes of @rufuswainwright and @lanadelrey. Pretty eclectic and dope there, little buddy. Putting him to bed just now, he said (with tears coming down his face) “But I didn’t sing for LP or tell her she’s my BFF!” #paralizedbygreatness #lol #sweetboy”. Aww, poor Hudson, but I do feel him!! I do feel him so much. Me – a grown person has been paralized in LP’s presence, so can you imagine her impact on a little child?!… But I’m sure he’ll got to witness her in the future. It’s just a start!

You will find video to Muddy Waters opening yesterday’s LP’s set, by clicking here. I also recommend checking Robin’s profile (here), she added many quick insta-videos. I haven’t seen a proper gallery of official pictures yet from the festival, but if something pops up, I will update this post. Now, what’s next for LP, first Paris and shooting video. Then Russia, Italy & Germany. In interview LP mentions that after return she will work on some new stuff for her record, then a US promo tour (around October I guess). Then UK in November/December and she will finish with several concerts in Russia & Ukraine. And finally, with thanks to We are LP UK, in the last episode of 1st season of ‘The Mist’, you can hear new song by LP titled ‘Necessary Evil’. It isn’t available to listen online yet, only in the show during end credits.
