Last night, singer Nick Jonas performed for a packed crowd at the legendary House of Blues in Chicago, IL. With his special guest, singer/songwriter Bebe Rexha, the two certainly delivered a performance that their Chicago fans will remember for quite some time.
The night started as Rexha hit the stage, and despite being second billing on the tour, Bebe embraced her role of warming the crowd up for Nick Jonas. However, despite her emerging status, you could still hear a large number of her fans singing along in the crowd. Kicking off her career as a songwriter, and getting her first big check when she wrote Eminem and Rihanna’s hit single ‘The Monster’, Bebe performed a great mix of some of her single records with a number of other artists’ songs that Rexha has contributed to in the past few years. The highlight of her set came as she closed with an energetic performance of her big single, ‘I Can’t Stop Drinking About You’.
Soon after Rexha said goodbye to the Chicago crowd, Nick Jonas was ready to greet his Windy City fans. The lights were dim as Nick’s two lead female guitarists gave a killer introduction as Nick emerged. Opening with his record ‘Chains’, the second half of the night couldn’t have started off better. While Nick’s solo career is still relatively new, and with many still associate him with his brothers, it wasn’t long into his set that you realize his solo career has already well surpassed his work with the Jonas Brothers. Nick performed radio hit-after-hit, with a lot of his B-side tracks throughout and a beautiful acoustic performance of ‘A Little Bit Longer’, until he capped the night with an encore performance of ‘Jealous’.
