CONCERT REVIEW – Charli XCX – Boston, MA

Charli XCX transported her “angels” (fans) to a completely new world of Charli at the House of Blues in Boston, Massachusetts. The ‘1999’ singer gave attendees every ounce of her energy with a balanced set that took her audience through of a variety of emotions between every track. The weekend started early in Boston on Thursday night because Charli was ready to party and the crowd was completely on board with that.

Beginning the night with ‘Next Level Charli,’ fans were immediately taken to a next level show within minutes. Charli was able to take complete control of the stage without the help of any background dancers or musicians. She knew exactly how to get her angels ready for a show that they would arguably never forget. With powerful vocals and an intense amount of energy, Charli’s passion and excitement radiated from the front of the crowd to the exit of the venue.

Charli’s connection with the crowd was undeniably obvious. She reminded them throughout the set that they are worthy of everything life has to offer and to never forget that she has their back. Some tracks performed by Charli, especially ‘Official,’ gave fans a chance to see a more vulnerable and intimate side of the singer on stage. Her relatable lyrics were sang from all over the venue and instantly made the space feel like an arena and tiny intimate show at the same time.
