Live Review: Charli XCX’s Opening Night Teleports Sold Out Crowd Into The Future.


Atlanta, GA: Buckhead Theatre

Having recently dropped her latest album Charli, the radical singer officially embarks on her tour across the U.S. with Atlanta as the first stop. 

As show time approached at the Buckhead Theatre, fans chanted “Charli” over and over as they excitedly waited for the night to commence. As the lights dimmed and smoke rose from the floor, the curtains quickly revealed an interesting stage layout. Right at mid-center, an enormous cube balanced on its tip while strobe light stairs stood on each side of the cube. With no Charli in sight, the singer’s voice filled the venue as she greeted and thanked her fans for coming. As fans erupted in excitement, the singer started the night with her song “Next Level Charli.”

With explosive energy, Charli was nonstop action as she performed and jumped all over the stage. Constantly hyping the crowd with her addictive performance, the singer showed no signs of exhaustion with the constant movement. Proceeding with the night, Charli XCX smoothly transitioned into “Click,” before slowing things down with another new release “I Don’t Wanna Know.” Passionately belting out long notes, Charli’s emotional performance had the crowd mesmerized.

The setlist consisted of every single song from Charli, with some older fan favorites such as “Vroom Vroom,” “Track 10,” and “Boys.” Towards the end of the show and with mixed reactions, Charli took the time to state that she was going to perform a mainstream song, but that she will no longer be performing “Boom Clap,” and proceeded to hype up the crowd with “I Love It.” As Charli performed the massive hit, fans quickly forgave the lack of “Boom Clap,” and kept on partying.

With an amazing stage presence and always evolving with her sound, Charli XCX’s latest tour is a MUST attend event. Despite having several features on her latest album, the singer’s performances of each song still shines through with extreme passion and energy. With her voice being altered every once in a while, and the constant glowing of flashing lights, Charli XCX takes her fans into a futuristic world. Creating a mesmerizing experience that can only be experienced in person, Melodic Magazine is excited to see what the other upcoming dates have to offer.
