Robyn @ Terminal 5
During "Dancing On My Own," a song about seeing a lover with someone else, Robyn transformed a somber subject into an empowering dance-your-worries-away anthem that inspired singing from the audience.NYC loves Robyn, and she loves 'em right back. After playing Music Hall of Williamsburg in late July and two shows in August at Webster Hall with Kelis, in addition to a private show (pictures from night 1 at Webster Hall), Robyn circled back to the tri-state area on Wednesday night (11/10) to play Terminal 5 with her tourmates, NYC's Maluca and LA/Londoners Natalia Kills. Robyn ripped through 18 songs across two encores. The full setlist is below along with more pictures from the show.
Robyn continued to "body talk" with each movement, even during the interludes. After pelvic gyrations against her drummer's drum set and enough twirling in circles to make a person drop dead, Robyn pounded through songs -- her newest single "Indestructible," "Love Kills," "The Girl and the Robot," and "With Every Heartbeat" -- before professing her deep love for New York and exiting the stage.
She reemerged for two dance-infused encores. On the second, she performed her recent song "Dancehall Queen," then transitioned it into a cover of Abba's "Dancing Queen" before performing a gentle version of her 1997 hit "Show Me Love." The crowd was more than happy to do that. -[MTV News]
