The fans were certainly fed with endless pop songs during the Nashville pitstop of Kim Petras’ Feed the Beast World Tour.
From the playful costume changes to the intricately choreographed dancing, Petras offered a well-rounded evening of artistry.
The night of dancing began with a DJ set by Alex Chapman. The lively performance took place just one day following Chapman’s Best Pop Dance Recording Grammy nomination for his writing on Troye Sivan’s hit song “Rush”. The setlist meshed early 2000s pop with today’s hits, resulting in the perfect method to get the crowd riled up for the headlining act’s discography.
Kim Petras has been pop star material for years, but she was further launched to stardom following her 2023 Grammy win. She made history last year when she became the first openly transgender woman to win a Grammy Award in the category of Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for her collaboration with Sam Smith on their song “Unholy”. The hit song also landed the No. 1 spot of Billboard Hot 100 upon its release.
The fans dressed to impress on Saturday night at Municipal Auditorium, and they were sure to match the energy exuded by the bleached blonde singer. Petras, accompanied by three dancers and flashy on-screen visual effects, did not hold back on the theatrics as she took the viewers on a winding journey through a five part concert experience. Her solid and smooth vocals never wavered as she danced through her setlist of over 30 songs ranging from her 2016 to present discography. Petras is no stranger to making magic with fellow musicians. In addition to her success with Sam Smith, a few of her musical collaborations include Charli XCX, Madison Beer, Nicki Minaj and Paris Hilton.
The headliner released her first studio album Feed the Beast in June 2023 prior to the start of the world tour, and then treated fans to Problematique, a surprise release of what would have been her first studio album had it not been previously shelved.
Petras wraps up the US portion of her world tour at the end of November in San Diego then will make her way to the UK and Europe in February of next year.
