The Goddess Herself- Lizzo Taking Over Sold Out Palace Theatre 5/5


Lizzo has been a favorite of mine for some years now and although she doesn’t call Minneapolis home anymore (she recently packed up and moved to LA), she is still one of us. Her sold out show on Sunday, May 5th is one of those hot ticket shows in town and you should truly consider yourself lucky if you were able to snag one!

2018 was yet another extraordinary year for Lizzo, highlighted by a stellar live performance at Lollapalooza – named #1 on Time Out’s “The Five Best Things We Saw At Lollapalooza on Friday” – as well as a remarkable show at New York City’s MoMa PS1 Warm Up 2018 and multiple high profile appearances during New York Fashion Week.

The year also saw a stunning range of media attention, spanning cover appearances on Galore and Teen Vogue’s “Pass The Mic Music Issue” to feature interviews including Rolling Stone, the New York Times, V, Glamour, and Allure, which named Lizzo among its “Beauty Disruptors: 12 People Changing the Beauty Industry for the Better.” Lizzo was also featured on several “Best Of” lists for her hit track “Boys,” including Time’s “10 Best Songs of 2018,” Pitchfork’s “100 Best Songs of 2018,” and Paste’s “50 Best Songs of 2018” and more. “Fitness” was also included in Paper Magazine’s “Top 100 Songs of 2018.”

Coconut Oil, Lizzo’s hugely acclaimed Nice Life Recording Company/Atlantic Records debut EP, was released in October 2016 to unanimous critical acclaim and popular success. Coconut Oil is highlighted by the hit single, “Good As Hell,” also featured on 2016’s Barbershop: The Next Cut OST. Rolling Stone singled out the track in its “Best Pop Albums of 2016 So Far,” explaining that, “Despite these albums, pop still remains a genre for singles. Lizzo’s boisterous ‘Good As Hell,’ produced by omnipresent 2016 producer Ricky ‘Wallpaper” Reed,’ is a straight-no-chaser shot of self-confidence with a call-and-response chorus.”

Tayla Parx will be joining Lizzo as her opening act. Imagine a pastel-hued place where lines between gender and genre disappear, feelings float freely, and anything becomes possible day or night. Under the neon lights, you can wear what you want to wear and be who you want to be without any expectations, constraints, or rules. This world belongs to Tayla Parx. The three-time GRAMMY® Award-nominated artist, singer, songwriter, and boundary breaker welcomes listeners with a warm heart and open arms to this space. After one visit, you might not want to leave…

As mentioned, tickets are long gone for this one but keep an eye on First Avenue’s social media pages. Sometimes they do ticket giveaways to even the most sold out of shows!
