What a performance, what a performer. My mouth wasn’t shut for a single second of Rina Sawayama on the Honda Stage during ACL Weekend Two
Before I talk about her phenomenal music, songwriting, and voice, let’s discuss her stage presence and performance. From the outfit changes (and the beauty of the outfits) to the background dancers, theatrics, and more, I did not want this performance to end.
I can say with utmost confidence, I can watch Sawayama’s ACL 2023 performance on repeat for the next fifty years and never get bored.
Sawayama stated that this would be her last performance of her North American 2023 Tour ‘Hold The Girl- Reloaded’, and she definitely ended this tour with a BANG.
Sawayama did not just sing, she performed, and kept the audience intrigued during every minute she was on that stage. From the little acting snipits before songs such as ‘This Hell’, giving the audience a moment to watch her theatrical skills before singing the last song of the night.
