Thursday night’s sold out show at the Troubadour featured Vérité as the headliner. Pressed to capacity, fans erupted as she appeared on stage. ‘When You’re Gone’ officially kicked off the evening as she stood behind a keyboard confessing her emotions before the audience. The gloomy lights and fog filled venue added mystique to her performance. Fans quickly cheered in between songs expressing their support as Vérité traveled across the stage, embracing the sounds of her live band. ‘Bout You’ continued the night with passionate lyrics and lingering melodies.
After a string of slow tempo songs, Vérité addressed the crowd directly, thanking everyone present for attending. She shared that the Troubadour is the most iconic stage she’s performed at so far, embracing the audience’s praise as she continued with ‘Rest.’ Fusing pop rhythms with gloomy keys, she managed to take everyone present on an emotional rollercoaster fueled by heartbreak memories and upbeat mementos of uplifting experiences. ‘Death Of Me’ was performed with strong passion and dedication while ‘Need Nothing’ continued the slower paced songs. Shifting towards a faster melody, ‘Somewhere In Between’ and ‘Weekend’ gained loud cheers from the crowd as she prepared for her encore.
Before performing her closing song, fans showered Vérité with long stem roses. Overwhelmed with emotion, she thanked the crowd endlessly for their participation and dedication. Closing the fifteen song set list, ‘Underdressed’ served as a farewell to the crowd as everyone cheered with excitement. Vérité continues her North Ameircan tour throughout November. Her album ‘Somewhere In Between’ is currently available.
