Self-proclaimed boy band BROCKHAMPTON rocked The Ritz on Monday night, showcasing their dynamic talent with a performance full of incredible energy.
The group recently embarked on its Love Your Parents Tour, and thanks to a near-perfect set list, the tour is off on a fantastic start.
At first it didn’t look like the concert was headed in the right direction, as just seven hours before their performance lead member Kevin Abstract tweeted that he was sick and wouldn’t be able to perform. However, right before the concert went underway Abstract came out with a surgical mask on and then proceeded to take it off as the group began to perform their first song.
It was clear throughout that Abstract was sick, but that didn’t stop him from pouring his heart out on the mic. His delivery contained the same passion and intensity that a fan would expect. The few times that he did struggle to get through a verse or hook the audience was ready to assist him, which only added to the atmosphere of the venue.
The group started by playing some of their most eccentric and energy-filled songs, including “BOOGIE” and “STAR,” barely giving the audience a moment to rest. After these frenzied initial 20 minutes they began to throw in a few slower tracks, but made sure to never take the pedal off the emotional intensity of the performance.
