A perfect setlist, a perfect production, a perfect performer… no one is doing it like Conan Gray right now! We caught his NYC stop of his North America Tour and quite literally have not stopped thinking about it since.
It was incredibly special to see Conan not only play, but sell out, Radio City Music Hall – a venue he’s dreamed of playing for years. Pair that with one of the loudest crowds we’ve ever heard and you have every ingredient for the perfect night.
Conan is an absolutely incredible performer across the board (duh), but he really upped his game this tour. His set was a huge video wall that changed with each song, even opening up for some to reveal his “bedroom” for ‘Astronomy’ and ‘The Cut That Always Bleeds.’
We still don’t know how he manages to sing as well as he does while dancing back and forth across the stage, but the man can do it all, we swear. We even got our Y/N moment when Conan ran right past us down the aisles during the bridge of ‘People Watching,’ before letting us scream the lyrics with him once he made it back to the stage.
His most recent song, ‘Jigsaw,’ hurt just as much live as it did when it first came out. Conan introduced the song by telling us about someone who was in his life who made him feel “so ugly, so badly about myself, so undeserving of love.” To whoever it was, we hope you heard 6,000 people in NYC booing you as loud as we could because Conan Gray deserves the world.
- ‘Wish You Were Sober’
- ‘Comfort Crowd’

We laughed, we danced, we cried. We truly did feel all the love and emotion. On behalf of us and everyone in NYC who got the chance to go, thank you to Conan Gray for giving us one of the best shows of our lives. Missed it? He’s on the road in the US through April (including Coachella!) then venturing off to the rest of the world. Grab your tickets here.
