Last night (Feb. 24th) LP arrived to Chicago (also known as Windy City), where in the evening she performed at the Metro, (formerly Cabaret Metro). Venue first opened in 1982. The capacity is 1100, divided between the main floor and the balcony. Prior to the concert LP performed an accoustic set for the Sound Sessions Podcast, which should be posted online soon. There was also an interview. I believe it will be a video and a podcast since there was a professional photographer with camera.
In Chicago, LP was joined by Kat Cunning, who opened for her along with Noah Kahan. Kat will open for LP on other remaining dates of the North American tour. How did she wind up opening for LP? Here’s quote from interview for Windy City Times: “I could not be more excited. I put on a couple of shows in November. I had met some of her team in LA and hadn’t heard of her yet. When I listened to her stuff I was so glad they found me. I couldn’t be more honored to be accompanying her. She represents strength and a women doing her thing!”
I also recommend checking Kat’s latest video to Wild Poppies, great song & visuals, tango was always my favourite dance. And this live session for Paste, click here. Audience liked her too, here’s quote from Abby (@a.bbykp): “Tonight we met a total queen, Kat Cunning is an amazing singer and artist. She deserves so much more recognition for her amazing songs ? she was an incredible opening artist for LP. I can’t wait for her to come back to Chicago.”
But now, back to LP! As for her performance it was most likely the same usual set including rendition of ‘Girls Go Wild’, and it looks like LP has changed lyrics in second verse a little bit, previously it was “Tell you what, it don’t suck and I need you right now; You’re the one that I want so I won’t make a sound.” Now LP sings “Tell you what, such is love and the tears of a clown. You’re the one that I want but you’re never around.” There was also a beautiful version of ‘Recovery’, sadly some of the people at the concert were very loud and the video is not of the best quality, but still worth listening. To check recordings, go to LP Family Germany closed group on Facebook.
And now some of the few quotes I liked the most about LP. Tess (@lethologica21): “I’m so happy I got to witness the incredible vocals of LP. It was one of the best concerts I’ve ever been to.” Jessie (@jharamis): ” LP @ The Metro was incredible. So musically talented.” Ryan (@ryro1978): Incredible concert tonight. @iamlpofficial performed an amazing set, as usual.” Cari (@sneakylittleteadrinker): “By far my favorite artist. Serious talent.” Cat (@mscatstrain): “Mind-blowingly talented. Thank you for a rockin evening.” Melissa (@mskinney): “@iamlpofficial in Chicago tonight! Amazing voice and energy ❤️??.”
Kelsey (@girlsheartdirt): “Tonight was amazing.. I’ve been waiting six years to see @iamlpofficial and it was absolutely phenomenal. Now I’m fighting the urge to road trip to Detroit and do it all over again tomorrow. PS: LP, where did you get your shoes?!” Ally (@amac_e): “Holy fucking shit LP is even better live!” Ali (@alikat131989): “Bucket list item check. Best vocalist I’ve ever seen and heard live.” Lucy (@lucpoz88): “Hands down one of the best concert experiences of my life. Blown away by @iamlpofficial ❤️ I will never forget this concert. Ever.”
Trisha (@trishasease): “Unbelievable night seeing LP again!!! My baby girl had her dream come true to meet LP and even got her ukulele signed!! LP is such a friendly and genuinely nice person! It was sooo worth it to sit in the cold and rain for almost 4 hours!” I’m afraid that’s all I was able to find. There is also another photo gallery (including review) from LP’s performance at The Showbox, click here. Here’s my favourite quote from the review, after Alex Crick: “Looking at her small frame, one would never know what she was capable of, but in a single moment LP can break from a steady lyrical flow to belting out powerful soaring vocals which reach right down into your soul.”
Tonight LP plays at the Majestic Theatre in Detroit. Sara with no ‘h’ – have fun!
