Review: Halsey & PARTYNEXTDOOR Invade Chicago’s Sold-Out Allstate Arena

It was a good night in Chicago, as Halsey brought her headlining hopeless fountain kingdom tour with the talented PartyNextDoor and Charli XCX, to the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, IL last night. Selling out the 18,500-capacity venue and touring the country with two of her favorite artists, after performing for a Chicago crowd of 1,000 at The Vic just a couple years ago, Halsey’s growth and success has increased exponentially since she released her debut album, Badlands, in 2015.

But to say that last night was all about the headliner would be an understatement, as Halsey was in good company from the moment the show started to the time curtains dropped for her headlining set. Charli XCX got the night started with a half hour of her biggest singles to date, including ‘Boom Clap’ and ‘I Love It’. XCX surprised her Chicago fans during her Lollapalooza performance this past summer, as she brought out Halsey during her set, so it was only right that the two join forces for Halsey’s biggest tour of her career.

After Charli XCX got the party started, it was time for the party next door, literally. While PartyNextDoor may not share as similar of a fan base as Halsey and Charli XCX, Halsey could not have picked a more talented artist to join her tour. Signed to Drake’s OVO Sound, PND has penned tracks for Rihanna, Beyonce, Usher, DJ Khaled, Drake and many more. And even with mega-hits on his resume, Party still saves some of his best tracks for his solo work. With his critically acclaimed self-titled projects (most recently 2016’s PartyNextDoor 3), Party has built a strong fan base with his exceptional lyrics and talented vocals.

And all his talent was on display tonight, as PartyNextDoor delivered a roughly 10-track set. But instead of taking credits from some of your favorite artist’s hit singles, PND left his writing credits at the door and won the crowd over with his voice and performance skills rather than name dropping his collaborators. Party wowed the crowd with performances of ‘Recognize’, ‘Persian Rugs’, ‘Sex On The Beach’ and many more.

The road PartyNextDoor taking might not be the shortest one, but once he fully gets to his destination, he will be a star. While he wins crowds over, arena-after-arena and song-after-song, expect the Canadian singer-songwriter to continue to show the world that he is one of music’s most underrated rising stars.

Of course, last but not least it was time for Halsey to greet her Windy City fans. Each time the ‘Bad at Love’ singer visits Chicago she debuts a new hairstyle and showcases her growth as a performer. From supporting Imagine Dragons at the United Center, to Lollapalooza performances, to performing for a crowd of 1,000 at The Vic, last night was the cherry on top of Halsey’s memorable visits to Chicago. Early in the show Halsey confessed her love for Chi-town, and dubbed the show the loudest of the entire tour, while noting that she wasn’t just one of those artists that lies and tells that to every city. And given the relationship Halsey has had with the city in the past few years, we have zero reason to doubt her.

Throughout the night, Halsey performed the majority of tracks from her second studio, hopeless fountain kingdom, where the tour get its name. Not only did Halsey choose a setlist that differed from the previous stops on the tour, Halsey catered her set to the true fans that filled the arena and not just the casual fan. Although she played her mega-hit and Chainsmokers collaboration ‘Closer’, even Halsey had to admit that it was annoying how overplayed the track was on the radio. It’s rare that an artist is so relatable and funny, while also taking a jab at themselves, but it worked. Having said that, her stripped down performance of ‘Closer’ was one of the highlights of the entire night.

As Halsey performed everything from the new to the old and the hits and the B-side, she took control of the arena and proved that no stage is too big for the emerging star. And with a visit to the B-stage and even a trek through the audience to give hugs and take selfies, everyone in attendance was in a good position to have a great night. If you didn’t get your tickets in time for Halsey’s sold-out show, you certainly missed out, but history would suggest that Halsey will be back in Chicago in less than a year’s time.

PARTYNEXTDOOR Saves the Day in Chicago After Jeremih Only Performs 3 Songs for Hometown Crowd

Last night, PARTYNEXTDOOR took on a ton of damage control and saved the day during the Chicago stop of the Summer’s Over Tour at the Aragon Ballroom. Although the concert began as planned, with R&B newcomers THEY., putting on a great opening performance, anxiety began to rush through the crowd as Jeremih still hadn’t hit the stage for his co-headlining and homecoming performance. Originally scheduled to perform at 7:50 PM, Jeremih didn’t greet his fans until about two hours later, and only for a 3-song performance before the sound crew cut off his music. It was PARTYNEXTDOOR however, who gave the Chicago fans everything they wanted and more.

The performances for the night were on a tight schedule from the very beginning. With a weekday all ages show, it was crucial for everything to go as planned. But as time began to pass, as the crowd anticipated Jeremih’s set, fans began to worry. Rumors began to circulate that Jeremih was late for his set, a rumor that was later confirmed to fans by the venue, which caused many fans who came for Jeremih to leave the show even before PND hit the stage. Then, minutes before PND’s scheduled set time of 9:00 PM, the production crew tore Jeremih’s setlist from centerstage, crumpled it into a ball and tossed it away like yesterday’s news. Production quickly began setting up for PARTYNEXTDOOR.

Fortunately for PARTYNEXTDOOR’s fans, PND would soon hit the stage, and he definitely delivered. While the DJ killed time, even playing some songs twice duo to the extended wait time, fans chanted “PARTY-NEXT-DOOR” throughout the historic venue. Although Chicago’s is Jeremih’s hometown, you would not have guessed it last night, as the majority of the crowd seemed to be there for PND and were not shy about vocalizing their displeasure for Jeremih’s tardiness. And whether you were there for PND or Jeremih, you had to have been impressed by PARTYNEXTDOOR’s performance. His vocals were near perfect, his light show throughout his set was more than entertaining, and his set alone was worth the price of admission. PND certainly made up for Jeremih’s absence.

But fortunately for the Jeremih fans who decided to stick around, the ‘Birthday Sex’ singer finally hit the stage, but it didn’t go over too well. Jeremih only performed three tracks before his sound was cut off by the sound crew. As this happened, Jeremih announced “they some haters, f*ck ya’ll” and stormed off stage. In his defense, we don’t know every detail of what happened, but it should come as no surprised that Jeremih would be late for his performance. Last night marked the third time this year that Jeremih was late for his own performance in his hometown, also being late for his sets at AAHH! Fest and Pitchfork, both festivals on strict time schedules. So with last night’s show needing to be on schedule to avoid fines and penalties, the powers in charge likely had no choice but to skip Jeremih’s set and proceed to PARTYNEXTDOOR. And when Jeremih finally appeared in the middle of PND’s set, three songs was all that the sound crew would give him.

If you came as Jeremih’s biggest fan, you didn’t have the best night of your life last night and Jeremih, the Aragon Ballroom, or someone owes you a better explanation. But if you came for PND or in general to hear some great music, than you’re in great debt to PARTYNEXTDOOR for saving what could have been a completely disastrous night.
