Benee wraps up massive world tour with sold-out show in LA (review)

Synth pop feel Benee took the world by storm with her catchy hooks and danceable tunes, so when the 22-year-old was planning to wrap up her fun world tour in Los Angeles on Thursday, June 30, the team at Celeb Secrets knew they had to go check it out.

Headlining the Novo in the heart of downtown Los Angeles, the New Zealand native opened her set with a boatload of excitement and enthusiasm, resulting in a roaring welcome from the packed crowd. The energy could be felt and heard throughout the room as the intro to her song “Make You Sick” rumbled through the speakers.

Dancing on stage with a full band behind her, Benee performed her new song “Tough Guy” followed by Hey ux the classics “Happen To Me” and “Same Effect”.

The two-hour set was filled with fan interaction; Benee accepted stuffed snails as a gift, said she has no hobbies, and even said hello to a baby on FaceTime! There was a fantastic mix of new old songs, including the infamous ‘TikTok Song’, ‘Supalonely’, ‘Glitter’ and ‘Find an Island’ for the OGs, and ‘snail’, ‘didn’t importance” and “marry me” at the end of his second year Litchi for new fans.

The 22-year-old ended the evening with a literal bang, as an explosion of rainbow mist and confetti filled the room after her encore. “For Pride Month!!! HAPPY PRIDE!” she said before leaving the stage.

Of the many artists we’ve seen, Benee is by far one of the most entertaining and charismatic artists out there right now, easily snagging the title of our new favorite artist. We very recommends not only listening to his music, but also attending one of his shows, whether it’s a headliner or a festival set.

Benee plans to play more shows in 2023, however, in 2022 she will travel to Austin, Texas on October 7 for a performance at Zilker Park, followed by two nights in Auckland, New Zealand with the orchestra. Auckland Philharmonic on October 21 and 22.
