Lizzo played Webster Hall with Brooke Candy (pics), playing Nashville Pride
Lizzo's tour with Brooke Candy took them through Webster Hall on Thursday (6/15). Pictures of the show, where both artists put on fun, energetic sets that had the crowd singing and dancing along, are in the gallery above. Baeblemusic writes:
Songs such as "Phone," "Humanize," and "Ain't I" had Webster Hall bouncing to bass, snare, and Lizzo's sassed up mash up of singing and rhyming. Each song incorporated choreographed movements for the stage dancers and Lizzo, which resulted in twerking galore.
Halfway through her set, the Detroit-born artist debuted a new song that deserves serious radio time. Following an official release, expect a Lizzo track featuring an acoustic guitar and sincere lyrics about turning self doubt into self love to soar on the charts.
Lizzo's show continued and concluded on a more serious note, as she stated that "Any Lizzo concert is a safe space." She continued onto a pitch-soaring chorus on "Worship" and what felt like a legitimate scream and a wavering cry on "Coconut Oil."
June is Pride Month, and it's Pride Week this week in NYC and elsewhere. Brooke Candy played LA Pride earlier this month, and Lizzo plays Nashville, TN's two day Pride Festival at Public Square Park on June 24-25. It has a great lineup, including Julien Baker, Big Freedia (who recently taught Bonnaroo to twerk) and Ezra Furman. Tickets are on sale.
Meanwhile, Lizzo and Brooke Candy's tour continues. They had to cancel tonight's show in Charlotte due to a "scheduling conflict," but played Carrboro, NC's Cat's Cradle on Wednesday night. Brooke seams to give her audiences a new elaborate look each night, and last night went topless in red body paint, as you can see in the NSFW instagrams below:
