Singer-songwriter Sigrid Solbrakk Raabe recently blew away Irish audiences as she brought her Sucker Punch tour to life.
The 23-year-old Norway native took to the 3Arena stage on Friday, November 22nd for her biggest headline arena show to date.
The tour follows the release of her debut album, “Sucker Punch” which was released in March earlier this year.
Support acts Moyka, a fellow Norwegian singer who recently released her debut EP, “Circles”, along with British pop duo IDER warmed up the eager crowd who were not so patiently waiting for the main act of the night.
Sigrid kicked off the show with the upbeat “Mine Right Now” followed by the powerful “In Vain” as she tells the crowd “I’m very honoured to be here”.
She then treated the audience with performances of “Schedules”, “Plot twist” and “Sight of You” which was inspired after Sigrid’s stint at Electric picnic last year.
The singer then graced the crowd with her famous anthem that is “Don’t Kill My Vibe” sending the audience into a frenzy as they sang their hearts out to what was more than likely the first song they ever listened to by the singer.
Sigrid shared how good it felt to stand there and sing this song after people in a writing session once told her how they didn’t believe she had something to say.
Throughout the entire concert, the Norwegian native kept the crowd in high spirits, as she skipped and danced around the stage, constantly interacting with her band consisting of a drummer, keyboard player, guitarist and backing vocals.
“I think we’re going to have a lot of fun tonight” shouted Sigrid as the crowd started chanting for the singer to sing “Sucker Punch.”
The singer slowed things down for a bit as she was left alone on stage with the keyboard to perform the powerful “Dynamite” and her latest single “Home to You”.
The crowd were completely entranced by the singer’s emotional performance as they waved their flashlights in the air, lighting up the arena.
The singer got quite emotional, as she burst into tears and thanked the crowd saying how it was such an honour for her to be here.
As the concert came to an end, the singer lashed out her two famous bangers, “Strangers” and “Don’t feel like crying”, making an uplifting climax to what was a truly memorable show.
As confetti filled the air, the singer and her band took to the front of the stage to their take their bow and danced off.
However, she wasn’t quite yet finished as she ran back on to the stage and danced to Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing” proclaiming her love to the crowd and waving an Irish flag in the air that a fan had given her.
A humble, inspiring and talented young popstar, Sigrid is only beginning her career and she will undoubtedly do amazing things with it.
