On the 4th February LP was well enough to resume her US “Heart To Mouth” Tour. She was ready to get back on the road sooner but broken tour bus delayed her for another couple of days. Anyway, on Monday LP declared her US Tour open at the Union Event Center in Salt Lake City. As always first there was Meet and Greet for people with VIP Passes. And afterwards LP was ready to slay the stage and her audience.
And!! She was unbelievable. I mean, it’s clear she’s still not 100% healthy, but she was so eager to be back on that stage, that it was visible in her every free movement and in her amazing vocals. Her audience was floored. I have never seen her dancing so freely and without a care in the world. There was also barrier jumping to be as near her fans as possible.
As for the set-list, she delivered all the songs she wanted to do at the first concert of this tour in Santa Ana, however she was so ill back then, that she had to cut her performance short. But Salt Lake City got it all, and it poured her love back at LP. Hell, they even got LP with electric guitar!! We’ve been hoping for such a reunion since forever. I think last time LP ever played a show with this instrument must have been in 2008.

So 10 years!! And, btw, I’m totally taking credit for it 🙂 Wheter you like it or not, those who’ve seen my interview with LP from 2017 will know what I mean. LP played electric guitar (pretty sure by Fender) to one of the most special songs on her latest album aptly titled, “Special” and it was truly wonderful to see her back into action… And it looked like she really enjoyed it and so did the audience.
I saw an amazing response to her show, both on Instagram and Twitter. So let’s start with some of the best quotes. @neverlandtourist: “LP is such an amazing inspiration. Her voice brings so many folks together. Was a wonderful communion to behold.” @jensahotmess: “LP you fucking killed it tonight in SLC. So many moments of astonishment, just witnessing you. Thank you for the beautiful show.”@33×18: “LP brought her bazooka of a voice tonight!”
@annagraybill: “I had so much fun with LP last night! My third time seeing her perform. Each time has been amazing. I always feel like she is singing right to me! This time I swear I saw a glimmer of recognition from being her at the airport the day before! This show was only the second on on her Heart to Mouth tour. She canceled five shows because of illness. Now she is back in action.”
“She looked and sounded great! Lots of energy! Lots of love! On her final song, Lost on You, she got right in the crowd. I was just a few inches from her! So much swooning! If you haven’t heard LP sing check her out today! So much passion and authenticity! Her voice is operatic in range and she whistles!”
@voltron183: “LP put on one of the best shows I’ve ever seen. Her voice is amazing. Her songs are beautiful and haunting. Such a wonderful night. 🧡” @trueeventsbyaleatha: “When you make whistling and playing the ukulele a thing. LP the queen of unique and very cool.” @roldandin: “Omg LP was a blast!!! Super talented and such a great performer!!! Thanks for coming to visit us.”
@majusculemedia: “The dangling carrot that kept me able to walk when I got hit hard November. Had to see LP again. She’s like a tiny awesome unicorn that the world needs.” I can relate to this in every aspect… @lilemrose: “LP. So amazing to watch her talents in person, literally couldnt have had a better night.” @aubbymcdobby: “I SAW LP AND THEY HEALED MY SOOOOOOUL. No but for real though.”
@mennyriverao5: “Music is the answer to all questions, great time thanks LP, awesome performance, not doubt more than I was expecting. By far true artist.” @megstanley22: “Came for the vocals stayed for the awesome whistle. LP put on a killer show last night!” @lghtsonforsfty: “Seeing video of LP did not prepare me for seeing her live. She’s got such an incredible presence, so beautiful. And that fucking VOICE. Blew me away.”

Also Angie King kindly agreed to wrote about her experience. Here are her words: “I only found LP four short months ago, when I happened upon Lost On You on YouTube. I have since become enamored by her and the incredible talent she possesses. Not a day goes by that I don’t have her songs on repeat. So when I found out that she was coming in concert, I couldn’t let the opportunity to see her live pass me by.”
“Unfortunately, the start of her tour was wrought with illness and then a bus breakdown, so I was extremely nervous the show I had tickets to would also be cancelled. Gratefully, it would be the “new start of the tour”, per LP.
LP is phenomenal. She has a stage presence unlike any other I’ve seen. She exudes happiness and her very own brand of coolness.”
“Although I could tell she wasn’t quite 100%, she belted out her songs including her beautiful soprano notes, and signature whistling. Simply stunning. She interacted with the crowd beautifully, making sure her appreciation for us was felt. She even hopped on top of the separater and leaned into us, while singing Lost on You. Incredible. Her show definitely did not disappoint. The only way to properly summarize, is to say that LP is fucking amazing. No doubt, I’m a lifelong fan ♡.”
Thank you Angie so much!!
For now I haven’t seen many HQ pics of LP’s Salt Lake City show, only Meredith Newsome Photography shared an album, you will find it on her flickr (click here) and Instagram as well. I also recommend checking @flee70 Instagram feed as she posted quite a few videos of LP from that night. If anything else pops up, I will be updating my blog and social media. Until then!
