Last night, pop singer/songwriter Bebe Rexha brought her “All Your Fault” Tour to The Metro in Chicago, IL. Although Rexha is currently traveling the country on her first ever headlining tour, in support of her debut studio album of the same name. However, tonight was far from Rexha’s first performance for a Windy City crowd. In the past few years Rexha has performed at Lollapalooza, iHeartRadio‘s Jingle Ball, the Allstate Arena for Ellie Goulding’s Delirium Tour, the House of Blues in support of Nick Jonas and more. However tonight’s performance at The Metro was special, as Bebe got to perform for her biggest fans with her headlining set.
Up first for the night was Los Angeles singer, songwriter and trumpeter, Spencer Ludwig. Instantly Ludwig won the crowd over with his infectious energy and diverse talent. Jumping back and forth between vocals and the trumpet, Ludwig puts the brass family at center stage with his entertaining performance. Although Ludwig is still awaiting the release of his debut album, currently set for this summer, the talented artist has already performed with Foster The People, Portugal. The Man, St. Lucia, RAC, and Fitz and the Tantrum, to name a few. While the crowd didn’t want his performance to end, Spencer Ludwig ended his set with a great performance of his single ‘Diggy’, a track heard by many with Target‘s Vibes campaign. Last night was Ludwig’s first show in Chicago, but if he continues to make addicting songs like ‘Diggy’, Ludwig will be back before you now it.
Next up, the crowd’s teenage fans began to scream as singer Daniel Skye stepped on stage. Performing a number of covers, as well as some original tracks, the 16-year-old singer catered to a younger audience but still showcased a voice that the entire audience could appreciated.
After a brief set change, Bebe’s Rexha band began to take their places for the night’s headlining act. As the fog began to fill the stage, Rexha emerged to her All Your Fault track ‘Bad Bitch’. The crowd went wild as Bebe owned the stage, only taking breaks from her vocals to drop it low, which only made the packed crowd more wild.
Throughout the night Rexha bounced back and forth between records from her debut LP and some of her biggest hits and collaborations. Perhaps the most live moment of the night though came with Rexha’s back-to-back performances of ‘In The Name of Love’ and ‘Take Me Home’. Another highlight of the night came with Rexha’s performance of her original version of ‘Monster’, a track which helped jumpstart her career after she sold the track to Eminem for his mega-Rihanna collaboration. ‘Monster’ is a constant reminder of what makes Bebe Rexha so great, her amazing songwriting. However in 2017, Bebe gets the credit and glory for her pen, and it’s all well deserved.
Last night’s show was all for the fans and those in attendance at The Metro got a night that they won’t soon forget, so our apologies if you missed out. But if history is any indicator, Bebe Rexha will be back in the Windy City real soon.
