Grammy nominated, ZHU brought his “Grace Tour” to the Bay Area for three straight nights, the first of which was held at San Francisco’s Bill Graham Civic Auditorium.
Electronic music enthusiasts and party goers alike gathered to witness a spectacular night of music, lights, and pure electronic magic.
ZHU transformed the venue into an array of intricate lighting setups and a massive LED screen that towered above, promising a visual dreamscape that would compliment the auditory journey. One by one, ZHU and his live bandmates took the stage, cloaked in capes and shadows and immediately sent the crowd into a frenzy with the opening notes of “Take My Soul,” setting the tone for an unforgettable night. Their silhouettes danced against the dynamic light show, creating an aura of mystery that captivated the audience. The red visuals that dominated the stage added to the intensity of the performance, creating an atmosphere that perfectly aligned with the upcoming GRACE era. The stage production was nothing short of mesmerizing. ZHU stood perched atop a towering box as the live band began to play “The Fall” within the box. The box itself served as a canvas for an array of visuals that pulsed in harmony with the music throughout the performance. The production elevated the entire experience to another level. Throughout the evening, ZHU
masterfully mixed tracks from his discography like “Working For It,” “Love That Hurts,” and “Days Before Grace”, creating a seamless journey that kept the crowd moving and demonstrating his versatility as a musician and performer.
With his upcoming album, GRACE, set to drop on January 19, 2024, ZHU’s performance in his hometown, San Francisco, was a taste of what’s to come.
Throughout his career, ZHU has always pushed his music boundaries of what music and live performances can be.
