We attended Gracie Abrams‘ This Is What It Feels Like tour in Boston, and the atmosphere Gracie creates makes it feel like you’re reconnecting with an old friend. Whether she’s holding your hand while singing to you or taking your phone or disposable camera capturing the moment herself, you’ll feel how deeply she cares for her fans.

Likewise, you could definitely feel how deeply her fans care for her. Multiple times throughout the show, fans gifted her with bracelets, sunglasses, a tiara, a handmade hat, and little notes for her to read. Every so often, there’d be an “I love you!” yelled from the crowd, and Gracie would be sure to answer with “I love you more.”
This was a special show for Gracie, being her first (sold out!) show in Boston, and because she had some family members in the audience! She told us how she used to always visit her family in Maine and that her cousins came down just to see her show. Of course, being in Boston meant that all night the crowd was discussing if she would play ‘Augusta,’ and Gracie happily delivered. The crowd erupted with screams after the first line of the song: “Feel like maybe I might go to Boston.” This has been the only time she’s performed the song on tour!
Gracie had a mix of everything, from upbeat songs that had everyone jumping to slower songs that had everyone crying. She played almost all of the songs from her newest album, This Is What It Feels Like, and many other singles and songs from her debut EP, minor.
Alix Page opened the show for Gracie, played a variety of old and new songs, and even threw in a cover of ‘Teenage Dirtbag.’ Alix played all the songs from her new EP, Old News, which is a must-listen. We hope to see Alix in Boston again soon, maybe on her own headlining tour this time!
