Troye Sivan doesn't disappoint live, plays terrific set at sold out venue

by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

TROYE SIVAN
THE SHOWBOX SODO
February 4


There were two camps of people at the Troye Sivan concert. Screaming girls and screaming Gay men. That's it, from front to back and wall to wall.

The 20 year-old musician crammed The Showbox SoDo to capacity on February 4, the second stop on his spring North American tour, where nearly every performance is similarly sold out. He opened with 'Bite,' a track from his Wild EP, released last year, along with his full-length album, Blue Neighbourhood. Wearing black jeans and pocked-patterned jacket, which he removed midway through his concert, the tall and skinny artist pleased fans with cool, lively versions of 'for him,' 'Fools' and 'Suburbia.'

'What's up Seattle?!' he asked the crowd. They screeched in return.

Sivan utilized the identical stage props - illuminated house frames with windows and doors - for this show as he did for his previous appearance in Seattle, when he played to a packed audience at Neumos last October. There was no fancy footwork, but he beautifully swayed his lean body against a colorful backdrop of lights, or sometimes against an unlit stage so that only his silhouette appeared.

A surprise entry on Thursday night's set list was a sweet, unplugged cover of Justin Bieber's 'Love Yourself,' which, like everything he sang at The Showbox, the fans knew each word to and joined in. Sivan's acoustic delivery of 'Happy Little Pill' was dreamy, especially with a chorus of high-pitched concertgoers chiming in throughout the venue. 'Let's have a fucking party!' the young Australian suggested to everybody, as if they weren't riled up already. 'You guys are wearing me out. Shit.'

'Ease,' 'DKLA' and a really great, hushed rendition of 'Talk Me Down' closed out the main set. Sivan wasted no time going into an encore, in fact I'm not even sure he left the stage before singing the opening line of 'Lost Boy' and then wrapped it all up with 'Youth.' Two songs mysteriously left out from his performance were 'The Fault in Our Stars' and 'Papercut.'

You're going to be hearing a lot about Troye Sivan in the coming months and years, a lot. Adele knows about him, Taylor Swift listens to him, and he's got fans around the world that can't get enough of him. This is a superstar in the making.
