Melanie Martinez is simply killing it on her 2016 Cry Baby tour! Her recent sold-out gig at the Playstation Theater in New York City was her biggest venue yet.
Our pop darling, Melanie Martinez, is growing up fast and shows no signs of stopping. Her latest tour is a continuation of her last, but boasts a bigger set, brighter lights, and yes, bigger venues. With songs like “Pity Party” joining Spotify playlists and copping features from Billboard and iHeart, it’s no wonder she’s selling out this time around.
This extension of the Cry Baby tour features Alvarez Kings as the opening act and a set list quite similar to the album’s tracklist. With no new material, there isn’t much change from her last tour for the same album, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t worth seeing again.
Opening with “Cry Baby,” Melanie crawls out of a crib to the sounds of screaming fans and waves of cell phones trying capture the moment. The crowd tries to push their way to the stage, only to be yelled at by Melanie herself for their violent behavior. Between songs, Melanie addressed her excited fans saying, “Don’t push! The people in front of you are human beings!”
The care Melanie showed for her home-state fans was unreal. She was sure to say, “Thank you,” after every song and watched out for any mishaps in the audience. During her opening speech for “Training Wheels,” Martinez alerted security to take out a concert goer who was getting light-headed and then dedicated the song to her! She may be a cry baby, but Melanie is a sweetheart on stage and off.
Aside, from her charming composer, Melanie’s vocals continue to amaze. She nailed every song and seemingly effortlessly at that. Singing straight through “CryBaby” to “Mad Hatter,” the set lasted about an hour and left us wanting more. The only problem, is she had nothing left to offer.
