When Madison Beer released her highly anticipated debut album ‘Life Support,’ she explained that, “Writing songs is like therapy for me…I can put something into a song and then let it go, send it out into the world,” she continued, “When fans tell me I’ve put a voice to something they’ve been feeling, it’s as affirming for me as it is for them.”
This Fall, Beer is connecting with her fans live on her Life Support Tour.
On October 26, Boston fans joined Madison Beer, as well as openers Maggie Lindemann and Audriix for a cathartic, inspiring, and celebratory night.
Pop artist Audriix kicked things off with a selection of her empowering anthems, including her latest single, “I Choose Me.” Fans bobbed their heads to tracks like “Airstream” and “Taking Back My Life.”
Although unknown to most of the crowd, her infectious melodies eventually had the crowd singing along to her song “Deep Breaths, ” which she described as a song, “for the people who don’t want to be told how to feel,” as well as a cover of Sia’s “Titanium.”
Not only did Audrix win the audience over with her catchy tracks, but also by closing her set with a crowd photo and free t-shirts.
The night switched gears when “Pretty Girl” artist Maggie Lindemann took the stage. The alt-rocker launched into a nine-song set beginning with “Knife Under My Pillow” followed by “Scissorhand,” which was inspired by the 1990 Tim Burton film.
Lindemann wore her heart on her sleeve and on a heart-shaped necklace with performances like “Love Song,” which brought Lindemann to the edge of the stage to sit among a sea of cell phone lights.
Her raw honesty spilled over into, “Loners.”
“Did anyone here come alone tonight? Do any of you guys feel like loners? Me too. There’s nothing wrong with being yourself,” she told the crowd.
Her dynamic set ranged from downtempo emotional performances to uptempo selections that sent her twirling, dancing, and stomping across the stage.
She closed her set with her unreleased track “She Knows It,” a song about, “liking a girl that has a boyfriend.” The single is due out October 29th.
As the crew cleared the stage, Beer’s magical world began to appear. An upstage screen with transportive backgrounds and a tree swing immersed Boston audiences into Beer’s raw storytelling.
Following an alien abduction video sequence, Beer made a grand entrance inside a neon box pushed by her backup dancers, dressed in a ruffled black dress and black gloves. Her powerful vocals serenaded the crowd with “Baby,” embarking on a journey through a 15 song, three-act set.
“Baby” was followed by healing break-up anthems “Good in Goodbye,” “Stay Numb and Carry On,” and “Emotional Bruises.”
Each song effortlessly flowed into the next progressing from pain to acceptance, with Beer rarely disturbing the captivating storyline with anecdotes.
Following a video interlude of Beer writing notes at a desk and a costume change into a princess-worthy yellow dress, her emotional vulnerability was apparent as she performed her latest single “Reckless” from a swing warning in the lyrics, “this is a story I hate and telling it might make me break.”
Throughout her set, she also addressed personal topics, including mental health in songs like “Dear Society.”
Fans went wild for Beer’s no BS anthem, “BOYSHIT,” to which she introduced with “Boston, don’t speak fucking BOYSHIT!”
The third act was heralded by an Alice in Wonderland-inspired video in which she asked “Excuse me, has anyone seen the White Rabbit?”
She closed the set with her hypnotic song “Follow The White Rabbit.”
After a brief pause, Beer reappeared for an encore performance of “Everything Happens For A Reason.”
The show concluded with air hugs, bows, and cannons filled with pink petal confetti.
