Lights flashed and a neon-like backdrop seemed to change colors showing off the name “Kim Petras” with every beat. As soon as Petras stepped out onto the stage her diva-esque voice immediately took over the venue and commanded the attention of everyone there.

The German Popstar started off with “All the Time,” a bubblegum pop song with a punch about wanting to spend all your time with someone special.

While people often assume that people buy concert tickets for the headliner, it was clear at this point after the first song that the audience had also bought their tickets to support Petras.


Her energy continued throughout her performance of songs like “Heart to Break,” her single which soared to #19 on Billboards Top 40, “Can’t Do Better,” and “Tell Me It’s A Nightmare” which is off of her newest release, a Halloween mixtape called Turn Off The Light, Vol. 1.

The crowd could not stop cheering or dancing throughout Petras’s set and many audience members knew every word to every song she performed. It was like being at one big dance party with all your closest friends.

Finally the cherry on top of the night was getting to meet Kim Petras in person and finding out that she is as lively as her music while still staying humble and down-to-earth. If you’ve never seen her live, I would definitely recommend going to one of her shows before she blows up since her career is undoubtedly going to skyrocket soon.
