Photo Gallery: Lizzo at Riviera Theatre

| May 7, 2019

Lizzo threw a two day party in Uptown this past weekend. Okay, that may be a bit of an exaggeration, but the first her two sold out shows at that neighborhood’s Riviera Theatre sure felt celebratory. The rising star is out touring behind this year’s excellent Cuz I Love You and is inspiring her diverse audience along the way.

Her preaching of inclusion and positive body image resulted in an incredibly eclectic audience that treated every word like a singalong. Her seamless marriage of hip-hop, disco, trap and pop music nuance left everyone feeling as though she were singing directly to the individual. But when she unleashed those vocal chords that are equal parts Adele, Aretha and Donna Summer, it didn’t matter who was in her audience. Anyone within earshot was entranced.
