Singer Conan Gray is currently in the middle of the biggest tour of his career, and on Wednesday night he performed for his biggest crowd yet at the Huntington Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island in Chicago.

Despite the relatively cold temperatures at Chicago’s lakefront outdoor venue, thousands of fans filled the venue for Gray’s return to the Windy City. Less than a year removed from Conan’s performance at the Aragon Ballroom, Wednesday night was evidence of the “Maniac” singers exponential growth in the past couple years.

Dubbed the “Superache” Tour, titled after his 2022 sophomore album, Gray kicked things off with the LP’s upbeat track “Disaster”, a word that certainly wouldn’t describe Wednesday nights performance as things went off without a hitch. Fans sang along from start to finish, whether they were supplying backup vocals for a B-side or if it was one of his biggest Top 40 singles like “Heather” or “Maniac”.

Throughout the evening Gray’s personality was on display as much as his impressive vocals and addictive songs. The Texas native, who is a couple weeks away from a huge festival performance at Austin City Limits, joked with his fans between tracks and expressed his gratitude for the packed crowd.

Gray delivered several performances from his 2020 and 2022 studio albums, closing out the night with his hits “Heather” and “Maniac” before a memorable encore performance of his Superache single “Memories”, a fitting song to close out a night that his fans won’t soon forget.
