Trixie Mattel – The Fillmore – Philadelphia (A Concert Review)

Updated: Jul 8

Trixie Mattel – The Fillmore – Philadelphia, PA – June 30, 2024

A sea of pink took over Philadelphia Sunday night when Trixie Mattel arrived for the final night of her infamous Solid Pink Disco pride tour. The night started out with some classic remixes as fans gathered in the venue, completely decked out in all shades of pink and Trixie Mattel merch. Fans sang along to the classics, including a-ha’s “Take On Me,” ABBA’s “Dancing Queen,” and of course, “Read U Wrote U” from RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars season 2. As it got closer to 9pm, Trixie’s DJ Mother Mateo Segade took the stage, along with a local Philadelphia cast of drag and burlesque performers to warm up the crowd.

As 9:45 rolled around, the crowd went wild as Trixie took the stage. She waved to the crowd as she looked stunning, flaunting her hot pink outfit, a pink studded jacket and ruffled bottoms, before taking her position at the DJ booth. She opened her set with none other than her track, Solid Pink Disco. This was met with an explosion of confetti, and cheers from every person in the room. The crowd was immediately up off their feet, dancing along with smiles that could be seen from a mile away.

Trixie interacted with the crowd, picking up her microphone to speak with the audience throughout her set, as well as giving the audience the power to choose whether she stayed in her pink stiletto heels, or changed to pink Crocs. The crowd, of course, went nuts for the Crocs! Trixie used a number of props such as a fan, and her gorgeous Trixie Cosmetics handheld mirror to put on quite the entertaining performance behind the booth. Her dancing never stopped, and neither did the crowd’s! The cast of dancers and performers stayed on the stage the whole time, dancing along and entertaining the crowd alongside Trixie.

Trixie played remixes of a whole host of songs, including Dua Lipa’s “Dance the Night,” The Trammps’ “Disco Inferno,” Aqua’s “Barbie Girl,” Lipps Inc.’s “Funkytown,” Kungs’ “Clap Your Hands,” Megan Thee Stallion’s “HER,” Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy,” ABBA’s “Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight),” and of course, Trixie’s own and my personal favorite, “Looking Good, Feeling Gorgeous.” Overall, Solid Pink Disco was nothing short of an amazing experience. Full of so many iconic songs, the fabulous Trixie Mattel herself, and a wonderful cast of local performers, the energy was at its peak throughout the entire night, and the dancing never stopped!
