Concert Review: Adore Delano: Till Death Do Us Party Tour
RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 6 runner up and season favorite Adore Delano’s party made its way into Chicago this past Saturday (January 10, 2015) at the Bottom Lounge for one of the stops on the Drag Queen’s Till Death Do Us Party Tour. The tour is in support of her debut album which, like the tour, is titled “Till Death Do Us Party“. The album charted at #58 on the Billboard music charts and #2 on the iTunes Dance charts breaking the record of selling the most albums out of any RuPaul’s Drag Race Contestant in the history of the show.
Adore took to the stage just after 10PM after meeting many of the VIP guests in attendance who purchased the Meet & Greet upgrade to snap a photo with the Drag Race star. Wearing a long fur jacket Adore stuck to her grungy glam rock look with fingerless leather gloves, an off the shoulder oversized Misfits rock shirt, fishnets, and black heels. The singer energetically kicked off the show with her debut single “DTF” to the delight of the fans in attendance who loudly sang along to the catchy track. For the next song and the remainder of the show the self proclaimed “punk rock mermaid” ditched the fur jacket before wildly performing another fan favorite “Party”. For “Jump The Gun” Adore called out to fellow Drag Race alum, and Chicago native Gia Gunn who was in the audience and dedicated the song to her. Although Adore spoke about feeling under the weather between songs on stage her performance did not reflect her claims as she truly put on a great show. After performing “My Address is Hollywood” she briefly left the stage but not before thanking the crowd for being so energetic and supportive and proclaiming her love of the city of Chicago and of course, our pizza. A short time later Ms. Delano returned to the stage for an encore performance of “I Adore You”.
Adore Delano’s Till Death Do Us Party is available now on iTunes and other digital outlets, and Delano is currently touring nationally and internationally. Tour stops and more information can be found at AdoreDelano.com
