PARTYNEXTDOOR’s Colours tour is bright but bland
Written by Karan Teli
I had high expectations for the sole London show of PARTYNEXTDOOR’S Infinity Tour.
First things first, opening act Jessie Reyez deserves her own review and her own applause. For the 30 minute set, she was incredible. Energy, enthusiasm and most importantly; talent. Bags of talent. Even though it wasn’t her show or her venue, she owned the stage. The crowd was cheering for her, getting hyped with her. It is very hard for an opening act to engage a crowd, knowing they paid their money to see somebody else. Her acoustic covers of Chance The Rapper’s Cocoa Butter Kisses and ScHoolboy Q’s That Part were particular highlights.
Then out came PARTYNEXTDOOR. The stage set up was dope. The colours, the effects, everything. Credit where it’s due to the art and creative director for this setup. PND is a good performer, and good vocally. The only issue is, the backing track is so loud that you can barely hear this man singing.
Unless you’re at the very front, it’s almost impossible. Of course, with screaming fans going crazy for Recognize, Break From Toronto, Peace of Mind, Run Up, plus countless others, it probably would have been hard to hear him anyway.
The show was enjoyable, especially if you are a fan of PND. If you’re not and you got dragged to the concert by your best friend or your partner, you probably weren’t going to leave as a converted fan.
