The theme of the concert tonight is songs about heartbreak. First, she plays a string of “pre-breakup” songs.
On “younger women”, she sings “If you don’t want me anymore… just say it.” The audience eats this song of raw emotion up.
Then there is “Phase Me Out”. “Don’t you want to stay here or do you want to phase me out?” She fully expresses the pain and heartache in this song.
“I don’t want your body, but I hate to think of you with somebody else”. This is from “Somebody Else” by The 1975. Her cover of this song has exploded on Spotify with 129 million listens. It fits in very well with her songs.
Then, there are the post-breakup songs. On “think of me” she sings, “I hope you fuck her with your eyes closed… and think of me.”
VÉRITÉ passed around two disposable cameras for fans to take pictures, like it was a wedding. Also, a boyfriend borrowed the microphone for a minute and proposed to his girlfriend. She said yes.
While most of the songs are dark, it’s actually a joyful night. Music gives us the power to feel and express these emotions which makes us feel better in the end.
