Betty Who definitely knows how to wow a crowd and that was evident in Boston at one of her best shows to date and a special one at that. Betty grew up in Australia until they would later end up in Boston to attend Berklee College of Music. So the Boston show at House of Blues meant that much more to them, kind of like a homecoming in a way. It was a special and equally exciting night for everyone in attendance that night, you could practically feel the excitement from everyone in the room. Everyone was in for an exhilarating night ahead.
The night got off to an amazing start thanks to a stellar show from drag queen Shea Coulee who practically knocked the roof off the place with their mesmerizing performance. Not a soul in the room wasn’t dancing and grooving to Shea’s set. Petition for more people to have drag queens open their show because this was the best opening to a show we’ve seen in a minute. Now that the crowd was hyped and in their groove it was time for Betty Who to grace the stage.
Betty Who had amazing production may we add. She had not only a giant backdrop with a cityscape and her name, but also 3 separate video boards that displayed different images and moving video to go with each song and aesthetic, pretty cool touch. Oh and also 2 backup dancers Joshua Pelatzky and Ricky Munoz alongside her for the entire show who were stellar and really brought the energy and heat the entire night. Betty Who knows how to put on a mind-blowing show and its fair to say everyone was in fact mind blown by the theatrics of a Betty Who show. The confidence shines bright in her and you can tell by the performance. Betty Who played all of their hit songs like “WEEKEND”, “BLOW OUT MY CANDLE”, “Somebody Loves You”, and a mashup of her older songs while also including a cover of Donna Lewis’ “I Love You Always Forever” to close out the show. Before she was to close out the show though Betty Who wanted to take a moment and soak everything in and acknowledge that she used to go to school in Boston, and how she used to see shows at that very venue wishing she could play there one day. It was a heartwarming full circle moment that was definitely deserved and amazing to see in person. A Betty Who show is always an amazing time so you don’t want to miss out on seeing a show near you!
