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.

27-year-old Denzel Curry gave his Milwaukee fans everything they wanted and more as the Florida rapper brought his headlining “Melt My Eyez” Tour to The Rave. With support from AG Club, redveil and PlayThatBoiZay, Curry performed cuts from his newly release studio album, Melt My Eyez See Your Future.

Looking into the future before Thursday nights performance, you knew that Denzel wouldn’t mail in his Milwaukee performance. The “Ultimate” rapper brought his unique sound, unmatched energy and infectious stage precedence, giving fans a night that they won’t soon forget.

Curry opened last night’s performance with his new LP’s opening track, before kicking off his headlining set with a little less than half of the album’s best tracks. For the second act of his performance Curry delivered hits from the first half decade of his career including tracks like “Wish”, “Threatz” and of course “Ultimate”, perhaps his biggest song to date.

Last but certainly not least, Curry closed his set with performances of “X-Wing” and “CLOUT COBAIN | CLOUT CO13A1N”. The former, being one of the best non-single tracks from Denzel Curry’s latest album and the latter being a standout from his third studio album.

Denzel Curry showed Milwaukee love and his Wisconsin fans showed love back. We aren’t sure when he will return to the Cream City, but fans already can’t wait for his return.

The possible surprise guests are endless, but since Jack Harlow is in town for a show of his own, don’t be surprise if he makes a late appearance after shutting things down a few miles away to see what’s poppin’ with Cole.
