LAS VEGAS, NV-
“…It feels like Chvrches have been touring for an eternity. Their last album, Love Is Dead, was released in May of 2018, and their performance at Intersect would mark one of the final show dates in support of the album … which is a shame… because I’ll never get tired of seeing them perform live. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again about Chvrches, but there’s nothing like bit synths and bigger hooks to put you into a good mood, and Lauren Mayberry, Iain Cook, and Martin Doherty have that in spades.
There was something about this performance that just felt a bit “extra”. I think Intersect’s stage production for Chvches was exceptional, and it really made the performance that much grander. Big lights with big hooks. It really was a perfect match.
Lauren’s performance (both vocal and stage) was both flawless and effortless, clearly evidencing how in synch she has become with the material for this album cycle. So comfortable was she on stage that she even bantered with the audience between about random subjects that caught her fancy. She even expressed relief about taking a long nap after the tour concluded. Good for the band… bad for the fans. I guess we’ll just have to wait until the next album is done before we see them back on stage. Hopefully, that won’t be too long…”
