Live Recap: SHAED at 7th St Entry 09.30.19
SHAED’s career skyrocketed after they released their hit single “Trampoline” in June 2018; The tune can be heard playing nearly every time the radio is turned on, it’s been featured in Apple commercials, and the trio just recently re-released a new version featuring Zayn Malik. As the group continues to climb the charts, it’s certainly no surprise that their Monday night show at 7th St. Entry in Minneapolis, Minnesota was sold out.
In the moments leading up to the start of Monday’s show with opener Absofacto, excitement coursed through the room full of fans. He hyped up the crowd as fans in the audience screamed back at him after each song was over. His dance moves were electric and fun, which put a smile on many faces. He ended his 9-song set with “Dissolve,” which became a hit after appearing in videos on Tik Tok. When it was all over, the audience began a chant for an encore.
As the stage was getting set up for SHAED, fans were buzzing with even more anticipation. They screamed when the setlist came out and analyzed it, determining which ones they were most amped for. Then, the lights went down. A silence came over the crowd and orange lights framed the stage seconds before SHAED came on.
They started their show off with “Just Wanna See,” the first song they ever released. As each song ended the lead singer, Chelsea Lee, lit up with a smile on her face. Her love and passion for music and performing was clearly apparent in the emotion on her face. They followed that song with “ISOU,” which was released earlier this year. Crowds already knew the words and sang along loudly and joyously. Throughout the show, Lee spoke about not being perfect but still loving yourself because no one is perfect, which resonated with the fans as they looked up to her with admiration in their eyes.
SHAED closed out the show with their wildly popular single, “Trampoline.” The crowd was absolutely electric. They cherished every moment of that song and sang it back to SHAED with verve, and the band left everything they had on the stage. See where SHAED is off to next here.
