Todrick Hall in LA
This past weekend superstar talent Todrick Hall brought his unique and riveting Forbidden Tour to The Fonda Theater in Los Angeles to close out the American leg of the tour. The night was packed with great songs, absolutely stunning performances, and the self-made star’s talents on full display.
Todrick is an artist with a rabid, loving fan base. They ate up every moment, screaming and singing along with every word. It was a pretty diverse crowd as well, with people from all walks of life and age groups. It was a welcoming, almost familial crowd that only added to the enjoyment of Todrick’s show.
The Forbidden Tour plays more like musical theatre than a traditional concert. There is a definite through-line based on the concept of the album and a cast of characters and additional singers that help tell this story.
Aside from a couple A/V issues with the set, this show went off without a hitch. It was a fantastic performance start to finish with Todrick’s immense talents at the forefront. This guy is the real deal and seeing him in person just solidifies that fact. He has busted his ass to get this far and it shows. The songs here are fun, deep, and intense and while the majority of this setlist is made up of songs from Forbidden, Todrick made sure to pay tribute to his past popular works like Straight Outta Oz and “Boys Wear Pink”.
It was an evening of amazing performances, fierce costumes, and Todrick putting his heart and soul into a gorgeous show. Unfortunately, this was the end of the (current) American leg of the tour. Hopefully, he schedules more stops here in the States because this is one you definitely don’t want to miss. Todrick is a tremendous and an important talent who really needs to be seen live. But, if you’re in Europe, Japan, and Australia, he’s probably headed your way!
If you can see Todrick live, do it.
