Wednesday 13 April 2022. MADISON BEER live at Shepherds Bush Empire. 23 year old female singer-songwriter plays the second of two shows here at SBE on her European Tour. Her debut album "Life Support" was released in 2021 on Epic Records. It went to 28 in the UK charts and 65 in the Billboard Hot 100 charts in USA. LEAH KATE - 28 year old American singer-songwriter is the support act. ----------------- My security chums were telling me about the meet and greet before the show. Because of positive covid in her team, Madison Beer requested that all the meet and greet fans should wear a face covering to meet her...this included keeping it on when they had the photo with her. Tonight is a full house, with maybe 90 per cent of the crowd being females under the age of 30. LEAH KATE arrived on stage at 7.55pm for her 35 mins set. The crowd know many of her songs. A couple were great uptempo catchy pop rockers. MADISON BEER arrived on stage at 9.05pm for her 70 mins set. Following an alien abduction video sequence, Beer made a grand entrance inside a neon box pushed by her two female dancers, dressed in a ruffled black dress and black gloves. There is a huge big screen across the back showing her videos and nice digital images. There is no band, just backing tapes, but this crowd don't seem to worry about that. Madison Beer is quite happy to show off her slender figure with two short skirt outfits. Later on she went into Alice in Wonderland mode. The songs seem to be about boys and relationships etc, that the fans all sing along to. For the encore ticker-tape was fired over the stalls standing. An enjoyable enough show.
