Nessa Barrett – The Fillmore – Philadelphia (A Concert Review)

Nessa Barrett – The Fillmore – Philadelphia, PA – March 2, 2023

Twenty-year-old singer/songwriter Nessa Barrett took the stage of the Philadelphia Fillmore on her Young Forever tour. Before even entering the venue, fans filled the streets of the city eager to see their favorite singer and the person they look up to most. This is the singer’s first tour and I was lucky enough to catch her on the sixth date!

Isabel LaRosa kicked off the night with an electric performance. The room lit up when she sang hits “HAUNTED,” “I’m Yours,” and even a cover of Katy Perry’s “I Kissed a Girl.” Isabel was the perfect act to get the crowd ready for Nessa’s performance.

As the lights went down over the crowd and went up on the stage, screams filled the room as Nessa’s silhouette graced the stage. She started her set with “Madhouse” followed by “Decay” and “Too Hot to Cry,” all tracks from her newest album Young Forever. Though Nessa only has several singles, one EP, and one album, the Fillmore was flooded with fans from the barricade of the stage to the back of the room.

Nessa played everything from EP tracks “I Hope Ur Miserable Until Ur Dead” and “Scare Myself,” many songs from Young Forever, her newest single “BANG BANG” and even an unreleased song titled “American Jesus.”

What I love most about Nessa is not only how talented she is, but how much love she shows to her fans. All throughout her set, she expressed her gratitude and love for everyone in the room. When talking about her own struggles, she made sure to let her fans know that they are not alone and that this tour is a safe space for them. I got teary-eyed!

Speaking of teary-eyed, while singing fan favorite “Die First”, fans held up white roses to pay their respects for the loss of Nessa’s best friend, Cooper, who passed away in 2022. This was one of the most emotional, passionate, and beautiful performances I have ever seen.

Nessa closed out the night with viral hit “I Hope Ur Miserable Until Ur Dead” which had everyone on their feet. This was a great end to an incredible night.

Nessa is currently on her Young Forever Tour in the USA and will be making stops in Europe soon! Click here to see if Nessa is coming to a city near you:
