OK, let me try to cover everything that happened ever since LP landed in Bogota (5th October), received a very warm welcome and started her Tour of Latin/South America. On the next day LP took part in a press conference organized by Páramo Presenta and Criteria Entertainment. I’ve tried to establish wheter the conference was recorded, sadly without any luck.
However as there were many journalists in the crowd I suspect we will be reading quite a few articles in due time. Though, I still hope someone got it on ‘tape’ as well. Then LP given interviews to W Radio Colombia and Radioaktiva. For now nothing has been shared. In the evening LP performed for a very excited crowd that gathered in full force and embraced LP with open arms.
Let’s start with quoting @memoospi who wrote quite an awesome review, I’ve used google translator and edited the text so it would be more readable. “LP performed for the first time in Colombia on the night of Sunday, October 6 at the Royal Center in Bogotá, presenting her most recent album ‘Heart to Mouth’, released in December 2018.”
“This singer and songwriter, originally from New York City, demonstrated why her voice is so characteristic and showed us a concert full of emotions. In the first two songs (‘Strange’ and ‘When we’re high’) the public’s hysteria was so extreme that it was difficult to enjoy LP’s performance. It wasn’t until ‘Dreamer’ that we could fully grasp that her voice transmits much more during live show than in the recordings.”
“The artist responded to the audience and walked at the stage receiving gifts from her fans while singing. It wasn’t until the fourth or fifth song, as usual in the capital, that the crowd felt the need for the air and had to slow down. LP has the ability to seduce you with the first chords of a song, her characteristic sound is presented in songs of all kinds.”
“LP performed version of ‘Recovery’ with only piano and voice, and then made the entire audience jump during ‘Special’, thus showing her versatility. Accompanied by a very good band, LP performed a small cover of ‘Paint in Black’ by the Rolling Stones, and throughout the concert she also demonstrated her ability to play instruments,”
“with the electric and acoustic guitar, harmonica, tambourine, ukulele and even her characteristic whistle, which becomes another instrument during her songs. The most anticipated moment came when, after an hour and a half of the concert, LP sang ‘Lost on You’, a song with which the concert ended.” Check out all the bras that flew to the stage!
“In addition to being a great singer, LP is a renowned composer, with songs for artists such as Rihanna, Backstreet Boys, Christina Aguilera, Rita Ora and Cher. As I spoke with @natipibo, one is left wanting to be in a show of unplugged version of LP, which must be fantastic, since then you could fully enjoy her voice.” I think we can all agree with this sentiment.
And a few more quotes. @laucristi: “LP. We added more love for you to our hearts last night!!! That was so awsomeeee!!! Come back soon!!” @lunatico16: “LP, thank you so much for this concert! One of the best in my life.” @lauramelissaGs: “Best concert ever, I love you LP, you are one of a kind! Just unique!” @VPaooola: “I’M SPEECHLESS, THANK YOU SO MUCH LP.”
@aviatorrae: “Another epic show by the one and only LP. Even more special to see the best artist rockstar with mi amor.” @tiny_lorent: “Incredible show, thanks for coming LP, unforgettable show. I finally enjoyed amazing music with my love. Talayeh super nice and sweet.” @Karen_NavaCan: “LP, thank you so much for you show in Bogotá! ♥️ Incredible, we hope to see you again!!! Love u.”
@sergiogamez: “LP! More than magical.” @_iam__Awkward: “Post-LP. I’m in recovery. Repeat once again that amazing show.” @KemEngDeJota: “What a great show last night, I’m still wondering how you manage to interact so much with the crowd and still deliver an impeccable concert. Thanks LP, you gave us so much joy.”
@Julimguevara: “What an incredible and talented human. Colombia 🇨🇴 loves u.” @samiosha: “Last night I was at the best concert of 2019… Her voice is just A M A Z I N G!!!!! Big thanks and too much love to this great artist, LP.” @genmalr: “The best concert I’ve ever been. LP, you’re fucking awesome.” @Limoneth_: “Thanks for the best night LP. Love u so much.”
@LuuRiascos: “What a freaking great concert!!! LP – You’re unreal and I fucking love you!!!” @marianafr98: “LP, loved this experience.” @verarockera: “LP gracias. I love your soul.” @catalinacaicedo97: “I loved every single second of all the songs she sang.” @aleja.rico32: “Thank you LP… So fantastic so special… I don’t have words to describe you… Thank you for your time with us.”
@ferdinand_717: “Meet & Greet with LP. I’m so glad to meet with this stuning, amazing & powerful voice.” @apollo_girl: “(More) In love. LP you got us so high.” Now the set-list. Since it was LP’s first time in South America, she presented a mix of her songs from both “Lost On You” and “Heart to Mouth” albums.
That would be all for now. I hope I was able to gather all that was worth sharing, it took me several hours to put it all together (6 to be exact), not to mention all the additional time for research and everything else. Anyway, I hope you will enjoy it. Tomorrow LP will be performing in Quito, Ecuador. Currently the situation is very tense in the capital city due to the recent political situation.
I hope everything will go accordingly to plan, though from what I have read it will be tough to travel especially for those outside the capital of Ecuador.
