Beabadoobee To Perform On The Tonight Show Following SLC Concert
Ahead of joining Taylor Swift on The Eras Tour early next year, award-winning Gen Z icon beabadoobee will appear on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Monday, December 5th for a live performance of her single “the perfect pair” from her recently released critically-acclaimed sophomore album Beatopia.
Born as a testament to the wonders that self-acceptance and loving the people around you can conjure, Beatopia opens up a fantastical and deeply personal world formed in the imagination of 7-year-old beabadoobee. The album received global praise, hit #4 on the UK Official Album Chart.
Receiving acclaim on both sides of the pond, NPR praised the album as “a blend of timelessness and immediacy” while Rolling Stone hoped Bea keeps making albums “as good as this one.” Pitchfork lauded the LP as “simultaneously heavy and light, dense and playful, melodic and dissonant” and Stereogum called it “…a leap forward… a woozy, pretty, accessible record.” The Sunday Times said that “She still sounds like nobody else today — meshing the music of her parents’ generation with a Gen Z shrug” and NME praised Bea for “exploring a new sonic palette with confidence.” Kerrang said “The sheer range of sounds attempted here is impressive” and Dork lauded Beatopia as marking “beabadoobee as an artist able to set her own terms. Inventive, playful and…truly magical.”
Local photographer Kori Laurel was able to capture the star’s recent performance on November 26th at The Depot, and you can check out the photos here.
