FKA twigs played Park Avenue Armory, brought out A$AP Rocky (pics, video)

After releasing her first song in three years, FKA twigs began her tour in LA earlier this month and she made her way to NYC over the weekend for Park Avenue Armory shows on Saturday (5/11) and Sunday (5/12) as part of Red Bull Music Festival. We caught the Sunday show.

FKA twigs opened the show with a solo tap dancing intro, and throughout the night she switched between multiple elaborate outfits, ranging from athletic-inspired to bustled Victorian with seamless costume changes. She performed one song while dancing with a sword, poll danced during new single “Cellophane,” and even broke down crying while singing at the end of “Mirrored Heart.” The biggest surprise of the night, though, was when she brought out local A$AP Rocky to perform their collaborative “Fukk Sleep” from Rocky’s 2018 album Testing.

Check out pictures from both nights in the gallery above, and videos and the full setlist below.

FKA twigs heads overseas soon and will be back in NYC for Afropunk Brooklyn.
