While living in Minneapolis, Lizzo performed with groups including the electro soul-pop duo, Lizzo & the Larva Ink. During this time she helped form a three-piece all-female rap/R&B group: the Chalice. In 2012, the Chalice released their first album, We Are the Chalice, which was locally successful. In 2013, Lizzo was one of five artists to form the hip-hop group Grrrl Prty, which released two EPs before playing their final show at Rock the Garden and disbanding in 2016. On March 23, 2022, Lizzo announced the single “About Damn Time” was to be released on April 14. After the song’s release, Lizzo revealed the title for her fourth album, Special, and announced a release date of July 15. Throughout her career, Lizzo has been subject to body shaming, due to her obesity. She is considered a role model and advocate for body positivity and self-confidence. She partially credits social media, and the Internet in general, for changing the narrative around size and giving visibility to overweight women. In December 2019, Lizzo sparked controversy at a Los Angeles Lakers game, where on camera she danced and twerked to her song “Juice” while wearing a dress that revealed her thong. In an interview with CBS This Morning she said, “Anyone who knows me knows that this is how I’ve always been. This is how I’ve always liked to dress.” On January 5, 2020, Lizzo stopped using Twitter; she cited “too many trolls” as the reason for her departure, adding: “I’ll be back when I feel like it”. Her Twitter account has since been updated by her management, while she remains active on her Instagram. Lizzo often discusses her mental health and its impact on her career.

“Juice”, the lead single from her third studio album, was released on January 4, 2019, by Atlantic Records. The next month, she announced the title of the album, Cuz I Love You, which was eventually released on April 19, 2019. After the release of her album, she performed at the Coachella Music Festival for the first time.
When asked about her sexuality in a June 2018 interview, Lizzo stated, “I personally don’t ascribe to just one thing … That’s why the colors for LGBTQ+ are a rainbow! Because there’s a spectrum and right now we try to keep it black and white. That’s just not working for me.” She has a strong LGBTQ+ following and has dubbed her fans “Lizzbians”. She later stated that she considers herself an ally and “leans heterosexual”.Throughout the summer of 2019, Lizzo frequently performed, including on the West Holts stage at the Glastonbury Festival, and as a headliner at the Indianapolis and Sacramento pride festivals.

Lizzo’s second studio album, Big Grrrl Small World, was released on December 11, 2015. Spin placed the album at number 17 on the “50 Best Hip-Hop Albums of 2015” list. Hilary Saunders of Paste praised Lizzo’s “ability to rap and sing with equal tenacity.” Her collaboration with Your Smith (then Caroline Smith), “Let ‘Em Say”, was featured in the season three premiere of Broad City.
On August 2, 2021, Lizzo announced the beginning of a “new era” with the song “Rumors”, which was released on August 13, 2021. In an interview with Variety, Lizzo stated at the time that her upcoming album will be “a love album” and “one of the most musically badass, daring and sophisticated bodies of work I’ve done to date.” The album was expected to release in late 2022, though at the time of the interview Lizzo had not finished it yet.In an article for The Guardian in 2019, writer Leonie Cooper credited Lizzo for “the woodwind renaissance” as “the flute’s brightest champion” on the mainstream.

On July 15, 2022, Lizzo released her fourth studio album Special, which earned acclaim from music critics upon its release. Lizzoverse, an accompanying immersive cosmic light show experience set to Special, took place in New York City’s Cipriani 25 Broadway and was livestreamed on Twitch. Following the release of Special, “About Damn Time” reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, maintaining the position for two weeks. In February 2022, “About Damn Time” won the coveted “Record of the Year” at the 65th Annual Grammy Awards, making Lizzo’s first win in the major categories.
Melissa Viviane Jefferson (born April 27, 1988), known professionally as Lizzo, is an American rapper, singer, songwriter, flutist, and actress. Born in Detroit, Michigan, she moved to Houston, Texas, with her family when she was ten years old. After college she moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota, where she began her recording career in hip hop music. Prior to signing with Nice Life Recording Company and Atlantic Records, Lizzo released two studio albums, Lizzobangers (2013) and Big Grrrl Small World (2015). Lizzo’s first major-label EP, Coconut Oil, was released in 2016.

Lizzo’s hip-hop-focused debut album, Lizzobangers, produced by Lazerbeak and Ryan Olson, was released on October 15, 2013. Killian Fox of The Guardian gave the album 4 stars out of 5, saying: “At times joyfully nonsensical, Lizzo’s stream-of-consciousness rhymes can also be lethally pointed.” The album topped Star Tribune’s “Twin Cities Critics Tally 2013” list. Music videos were created for the songs “Batches & Cookies”, “Faded”, “Bus Passes and Happy Meals”, and “Paris”.
Lizzo’s music primarily incorporates hip hop, and is also infused with genres such as soul, R&B and funk-pop. Lizzo’s influences include Missy Elliott, Lauryn Hill, and Beyoncé. Primarily a rapper, Lizzo incorporated singing into her debut record. She stated in an interview in 2018, “I was always afraid of being a singer, but then when I heard Lauryn Hill, I was like, maybe I can do both,” further adding that her debut album was inspired by The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, and Hill’s ability of “rapping, singing, being political.” She has cited Diana Ross as a fashion reference.

Lizzo is also well known for her ability to play the flute. She began playing as a child, and has continued to improve her flute playing skills into adulthood. She has performed with her flute, which she has named Sasha Flute, in several of her musical performances, including when she performed “Truth Hurts” at the 2019 BET Awards. Her performance at the BET Awards earned her a standing ovation from the crowd, which included Rihanna.After inspiring an internet meme on the TikTok video sharing app and being featured in the 2019 Netflix film Someone Great, Lizzo’s 2017 single, “Truth Hurts”, began to gain popularity and was added to the deluxe version of Cuz I Love You. The single became a viral sleeper hit, and, in turn, increased interest for Cuz I Love You, which remained in the top 10 of the Billboard 200 for several months. Melissa Viviane Jefferson was born in Detroit, Michigan. When she was ten, her family relocated to Houston, Texas. She was classically trained as a flutist by Claudia Momen for eight years, from the age of ten until she graduated Alief Elsik High School in Alief in 2006, where she had started rapping. At the age of 14, she formed a musical group called Cornrow Clique with her friends. At this time she acquired the nickname “Lizzo”, a variant of “Lissa” inspired by Jay-Z’s “Izzo (H.O.V.A.)”. In college, she studied classical music concentrating on flute at the University of Houston. At the age of 21, after the death of her father, she lived out of her car for a year as she tried to break into the music industry. She dropped out of college and moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota, in 2011. Lizzo grew up attending the Church of God in Christ. As of June 2020, Lizzo is a vegan. In 2022, Lizzo was romantically linked to comedian Myke Wright. She donated $500,000 to Planned Parenthood after the United States Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization (2022).After struggling with body issues at an early age, Lizzo became an advocate for body positivity and self-love as she attracted more mainstream attention, while making diversity the focus of her music, in regards to one’s body, sexuality, race, and more. Her group of back-up dancers, the Big Grrrls, consists of all plus-size dancers. Highlighting body inclusivity and celebrating individuality, Lizzo appeared in ModCloth’s “Say It Louder” campaign, which launched on June 11, 2018. In the same month, she sported the first plus-size outfit made for FIT’s Future of Fashion runway show by Grace Insogna for her performance at NYC Pride’s Pride Island event. Lizzo was profiled in the June 2018 Teen Vogue Music Issue.

On December 17, 2022, Lizzo returned to Saturday Night Live for her third appearance as a musical guest, with Austin Butler hosting. Lizzo replaced the band Yeah Yeah Yeahs due to member Nick Zinner having pneumonia.
Lizzo toured the US and UK in the fall of 2013 opening for Har Mar Superstar, and additionally sang with his band. In October 2013, Lizzo won City Pages’ “Picked to Click” award for best new Twin Cities artist. The following month Time named her one of 14 music artists to watch in 2014. The album was subsequently re-released through Virgin Records. Later that year, Lizzo shared the stage with St. Paul and the Broken Bones, performing “A Change Is Gonna Come” together.Lizzo is a contributing writer and producer on SZA’s critically acclaimed second album SOS, co-writing the song “F2F.” Lizzo also collaborated with SZA on the remix of the song “Special,” the title track of her album of the same name.

In September 2014, Lizzo was featured alongside her Chalice bandmates Sophia Eris and Claire de Lune on the song “BoyTrouble” on Prince’s and 3rdeyegirl’s album Plectrumelectrum. On working with Prince, Lizzo says the experience was “surreal … almost like a fairytale” and that it was “something I will never actually get over.” On October 7, 2014, Lizzo appeared as the musical guest on the Late Show with David Letterman.
Lizzo made her Saturday Night Live debut as a musical guest on the December 21, 2019, episode, which Eddie Murphy hosted. The episode was the final episode of both the year and the decade. In January 2020, Lizzo headlined FOMO Festival, performing in four Australian cities and Auckland, New Zealand. She also performed a sold-out show at the Sydney Opera House, where she had previously performed as a young flute player. She opened the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards with a medley of “Cuz I Love You” and “Truth Hurts”, and won three awards at the ceremony. She received eleven nominations at the 2020 Billboard Music Award, winning one for Top Song Sales Artist. At the 2020 BET Awards, she became the first act to be nominated in both the R&B/pop and hip-hop artist categories in the same year.Following the release of her first album, Lizzo immediately began working on new music. In 2014, she participated in StyleLikeU’s What’s Underneath project, where she removed her clothes as she talked about her relationships with her body. Inspired by the experience, she wrote “My Skin”, which she described as “the thesis statement” of her forthcoming second album. In an interview with Vice, regarding body image, she said:

On June 10, 2022, Lizzo released “Grrrls”, the first promotional single from Special. The song’s lyrics generated controversy because of the inclusion of the word spaz. The line was eventually replaced with “hold me back”, following a statement from Lizzo where she commented that “as a fat black woman in America, I’ve had many hurtful words used against me so I understand the power words can have (whether intentionally or in my case, unintentionally)”.
In August 2020, Lizzo signed a production deal with Amazon Studios to develop new projects with them. Her first project was an unscripted reality competition series called Lizzo’s Watch Out for the Big Grrrls. The show premiered on March 24, 2022.Coconut Oil received positive reviews from music critics. Syra Aburto, writing for Nylon, wrote that “like the product it’s named after, [Lizzo’s] latest project, Coconut Oil, is essential for healthy living.” Rolling Stone placed it at No. 14 on the list of the “20 Best Pop Albums of 2016”. Commercially, Coconut Oil peaked at number 44 on US Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums, making it Lizzo’s first release to chart. To promote the extended play, Lizzo embarked on the Good as Hell Tour in 2017. In May she headlined The Infatuation’s annual food festival, EEEEEATSCON and also appeared as a guest judge on the tenth season of RuPaul’s Drag Race. In early 2018, Lizzo toured both with Haim and Florence and the Machine.Lizzo was one of the hosts of MTV’s short-lived 2016 live music performance series Wonderland. After signing with Atlantic Records that same year, Lizzo released her first major-label extended play, Coconut Oil, on October 7, 2016. “Good as Hell” was released as the lead single from the Coconut Oil on March 8, 2016, as part of the soundtrack for the 2016 film Barbershop: The Next Cut. Lizzo co-wrote each song on the album, while enlisting Ricky Reed, Christian Rich, Dubbel Dutch, and Jesse Shatkin for the album’s production. The result was a departure from Lizzo’s previous alternative hip hop releases. Lyrically, the extended play explores themes of body positivity, self-love, and the journey to those ideals.Lizzo attained mainstream success with the release of her third studio album, Cuz I Love You (2019), which peaked at number four on the US Billboard 200. The album spawned the singles “Juice” and “Tempo”. The deluxe version of the album included Lizzo’s 2017 single “Truth Hurts” which became a viral sleeper hit two years after its initial release. It topped the US Billboard Hot 100, and became the longest-leading solo song by a female rapper. Around this time, her 2016 single “Good as Hell” also climbed the charts, reaching the top ten on the Billboard Hot 100 and UK Singles Chart. Lizzo received eight nominations at the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards, the most for any artist that year, including nominations for each of the “Big Four” categories; and eventually won the awards for Best Urban Contemporary Album, Best Pop Solo Performance for “Truth Hurts”, and Best Traditional R&B Performance for the song “Jerome”.

How long does Latto play before Lizzo?
Latto plays for just 19 minutes, skips ‘Lottery’ In theory, Lizzo’s opener Latto Tuesday night should have been a huge letdown. Her DJ, DJ Von, spent 13 minutes warming up the crowd, only for the fast-rising rapper to grace the stage for just 19 minutes.
The release of Cuz I Love You marked a turning point in Lizzo’s career, as she began to attract more mainstream attention; the album debuted at number six on the Billboard 200 and eventually peaked at number four on the chart, three months after its initial release.

Aside from rapping and singing, Lizzo has also worked as an actor: she served as a voice actor in the animated film UglyDolls (2019) and appeared in the crime comedy-drama film Hustlers (2019). She is also the host of the Amazon Prime Video reality television series Lizzo’s Watch Out for the Big Grrrls, for which she won the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Competition Program. In 2019, Time named Lizzo as “Entertainer of the Year” for her meteoric rise and contributions to music. In addition to her four Grammy Awards, she has also won a Billboard Music Award, a BET Award, and two Soul Train Music Awards.
“Truth Hurts” has since become Lizzo’s first number-one hit on the Billboard Hot 100. Lizzo became the third female rapper to top the Hot 100 without a featured artist. She also became the first black solo female R&B singer to claim the top spot on the Hot 100 since Rihanna’s 2012 hit “Diamonds”. A week later, on September 9, 2019, Cuz I Love You became certified gold by the RIAA with over 500,000 equivalent units sold. “Truth Hurts” spent seven weeks atop the Hot 100, tying for the most weeks at number one for a rap song by a female artist. The music video for the song, in which Lizzo “marries herself”, has amassed more than 220 million views on YouTube. In an interview, she revealed that the initial lack of success for “Truth Hurts”—what she had thought to be her best song yet at the time—caused her to seriously consider quitting the music industry altogether.In 2019, in addition to her musical projects, Lizzo ventured into acting, with a voice performance in the animated film UglyDolls, and a supporting part in the crime comedy-drama film Hustlers.

On July 23, 2019, Lizzo was nominated for Push Artist of the Year and Best New Artist at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards. She performed a medley of “Truth Hurts” and “Good as Hell” at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards; her performance received critical praise. Around this time, her 2016 single “Good as Hell” also climbed the charts around the world, reaching the top three of the Billboard Hot 100 and the top ten of the UK Singles Chart. The song also reached the top ten in Australia and Belgium.
In 2021, Lizzo released the single “Rumors” (featuring Cardi B), which debuted in the top five of the Billboard Hot 100. Her fourth studio album Special (2022) was preceded by its lead single “About Damn Time”, which reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and made Lizzo the first Black female singer since Whitney Houston in 1994 to win the Grammy Award for Record of the Year. The Special Tour is the ongoing concert tour by American singer and rapper Lizzo, in support of her fourth studio album Special (2022). The tour began at the FLA Live Arena in Sunrise, Florida on September 23, 2022, and is set to conclude at the Fuji Rock Festival on July 30, 2023. Lizzo: Live in Concert is a concert special directed by Sam Wrench, which was released on December 31, 2022, exclusively via HBO Max. The film follows American singer and rapper Lizzo’s performance at Kia Forum in Inglewood, California on November 18 and 19, 2022.Lizzo’s kicked off 2023’s “The Special 2our” with a run of shows in Europe and Scandinavia in February and March. The first show of the U.S. leg will take place April 21 in Knoxville, followed by an April 22 stop in Lexington, Kentucky, before her Bluff City set at FedExForum.

Is Lizzo coming to Utah?
I’ve been chomping at the bit to see Lizzo return to Utah so I can finally see her live. She made her return on November 2 2022 at Vivint Arena. Cached
The Independent added that Lizzo’s 2-hour set, “packed with spine-tingling belted vocals, trilling flute solos, and high-energy dance routines, is a firm reminder that Lizzo is more than a cultural figure; she’s a musician for the ages.”Since then Lizzo’s star power has continued to grow, as she won her fourth Grammy earlier this year and added an Emmy ( for her reality show “Lizzo’s Watch Out for the Big Grrrls”) to her collection of prizes. She’s also branched out into acting, appearing in films like “Hustlers” and more recently the Star Wars TV spinoff “The Mandalorian.”

What town does Lizzo live in?
In college, she studied classical music concentrating on flute at the University of Houston. At the age of 21, after the death of her father, she lived out of her car for a year as she tried to break into the music industry. She dropped out of college and moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota, in 2011.
Lizzo’s most recently reviewed gigs include several triumphant shows in the U.K. The Independent newspaper in London offered an ecstatic appraisal of her 25-song O2 Arena set, giving it five out of five stars.The Lizzo concert at FedExForum originally was scheduled for April 26, but was moved due a scheduling conflict with a possible Game 5 of the Grizzlies-Lakers NBA Playoff series. All previously purchased tickets will be honored for the new date, and additional tickets are on sale now at

The Guardian in the U.K. weighed in with similar fulsome praise for her Glasgow, Scotland, performance, also giving it a five-star rating. Critic Katie Hawthorne hailed Lizzo’s performance as “relentlessly aerobic, theatrical, emotional, hilarious.”
The 2023 edition of Lizzo’s “The Special 2our” will stop in Memphis on April 24 for what promises to be one of the year’s biggest concert events. The empowering pop/R&B singer and flautist will be joined on the bill by opening act and rising Atlanta rapper Latto.

Although a bit farther back, floor seating is also available, ranging from $126-$280. Middle level seating is in the $126 range, while upper-level seats can be had for as low as $36.
Over the last five years Lizzo, born Melissa Viviane Jefferson, has become one of music’s brightest stars. A native of Detroit, who has spent time in Houston and Minneapolis, Lizzo broke through with her 2019 album, “Cuz I Love You.” Its success would propel her to eight Grammy nominations and three wins. Though Lizzo’s FedExForum show has sold well so far (at last look, it appears roughly 80% of all seats are gone), a number of good ticket options remain as of this writing. While Lizzo had no direct connection to the hospital or the region, she was apparently brightening work days for hospital staff in various cities around the country, with the Baptist workers experiencing her generosity during the difficult early days of the pandemic.

Her 2022 follow-up LP, “Special,” reached No. 1 on the Billboard charts in the U.S. and landed in the top 10 in a dozen other counties, buoyed by the success of her chart-topping single, “About Damn Time.”
However, Lizzo did do a kindness for Mid-South medical workers during the COVID-19 pandemic. In July 2020, Lizzo treated more than 100 Baptist Memorial Hospital-DeSoto employees, who were working in the Southaven facility’s COVID-19 unit, to a special catered lunch.

How long is Lizzo concert 2023?
The Independent added that Lizzo’s 2-hour set, “packed with spine-tingling belted vocals, trilling flute solos, and high-energy dance routines, is a firm reminder that Lizzo is more than a cultural figure; she’s a musician for the ages.”
Although she’s played Tennessee numerous times, including the Bonnaroo festival, and several Nashville shows dating back to when she was still a club act, the upcoming FedExForum show will mark her Memphis debut.“In an industry that has long awarded privileges to slim, white bodies, Lizzo loudly and proudly defies both,” noted reviewer Nicole Vassell. “She demands that people notice her, and preaches the value of others doing the same. Lizzo is so fresh and exciting a cultural entity, however, that her actual talent is sometimes the last thing that comes to mind when you think of her.”

The opener on Lizzo’s Special Tour is none other than Atlanta rapper and former Uproxx cover star Latto. You might remember Latto from winning the reality TV show The Rap Game in 2016. Back then, she went by Miss Mulatto, and her star hasn’t stopped soaring since. Latto’s latest album, 777, came out this past April and she’s best known for the single “Big Energy” which, has been a fixture on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The track rides the same sample as Mariah Carey’s track “Fantasy” and the “Big Energy” remix version features Carey and DJ Khaled. Latto also appeared on Megan Thee Stallion’s track “Budget” from the album Traumazine.

The Special Tour begins on September 23rd in Sunrise, FL and presses on until mid-November for dates at San Francisco’s Chase Center and the Kia Forum in Los Angeles. But who is opening for Lizzo on The Special Tour and what do you need to know about them?Earlier this summer, Lizzo released her highly-anticipated fourth album, Special. Now, the “About Damn Time” singer is embarking on The Special Tour of North America and it’s a big ticket concert at all stops. Lizzo led by example, whether she was recognizing trans women and gender non-conforming femmes leading into “Everybody’s Gay,” or pausing the show for a “bad bitch meditation,” during which she encouraged fans, via recording, to “visualize your higher self.” At one point, as Latto passionately talked about rapping as an 8-year-old and selling her first mixtapes in parking lots for $5, you couldn’t help feel great about her success. The “big energy” she brought to her set showed she’s still hustling — but it also wasn’t cool seeing her cut corners in Milwaukee.

Lizzo has been atop the A-list for four years now, and she is more than three months removed from being the first Black woman in nearly three decades to win record of the year at the Grammys for “About Damn Time.”But even with all the talent on the stage Tuesday, Lizzo also made sure to turn the spotlight on the crowd, talking with several fans for more than eight minutes near the night’s end.

There was an artist from Sheboygan, who gifted Lizzo a painting; she plugged his Instagram page in return. Three fans celebrating birthdays got special gifts: a selfie with Lizzo, a “Happy Birthday” singalong and autograph, and the chance to twerk with her. Lizzo exchanged sassy lines with Milwaukee drag queen star Ester Flonaze, and signed a Grogu cutout (in honor of her “Mandalorian” appearance this season) for a fan named Juno who was celebrating their new name Tuesday night, to boisterous applause.The choreography for “Soulmate” was especially sharp, with the eight dancers taking turns popping their bodies and falling into the splits, before Lizzo matched their swagger, bent over, twerked for the crowd, then popped up to blow them a kiss.

In theory, Lizzo’s opener Latto Tuesday night should have been a huge letdown. Her DJ, DJ Von, spent 13 minutes warming up the crowd, only for the fast-rising rapper to grace the stage for just 19 minutes. Latto didn’t even perform her new hit single “Lottery” at Fiserv Forum Tuesday.
She brought that same emotional depth and uplifting encouragement to “Jerome” and “Naked.” For the former, she didn’t even need to stand, draped across a chaise lounge, noir-like black lines covering her body, the betrayal of a bad lover bringing her voice to a breaking point. “Special” standout “Naked” was stirringly staged, with Lizzo in the shadows, aside from her face, as images of falling rose petals, fluttering butterflies and twinkling stars were projected on her. At the end, the images were replaced with the words “Free Your Body.”Dazzling as Lizzo was on stage, she gave ample space for her 16 backing musicians and dancers, all Black women, to shine. With her three backing dancers, Lizzo exchanged church-worthy vocals for Chaka Khan’s “I’m Every Woman,” while guitarist Jordan Waters, just 19, unleashed a ferocious solo ahead of “Tempo.” For Tuesday’s second song, “2 Be Loved (Am I Ready),” she journeyed from being on the verge of a panic attack at the beginning to opening her heart to affection by the end. The passionate, singing crowd soaked in and amplified the self-love, an overwhelmed Lizzo wiping tears and flexing her arms like a bodybuilder. For the “Special” title track, Lizzo’s voice soared with anguish as she sang about being “used to feeling alone,” that “we,” all of us, “feel so alone,” bonding her fans through confidence and community. “I’m so glad that you’re still with us,” Lizzo sang with empowering radiance. “Broken but damn you’re still perfect.”Beyond such vulnerability and humility, Lizzo didn’t restrain her showmanship in the slightest. Toward the end of “Cuz I Love You,” Lizzo belted out a 10-second note so sumptuous that she earned the right to lick the tips of her fingers in the aftermath. She busted out her flute, dubbed “Sasha Flute,” on four occasions; the loveliest solo was reserved for her swooning “Special” ballad “Coldplay,” and later she played flute and twerked simultaneously for “Truth Hurts.”One of the most unexpected and delightful pop success stories of the past decade, Lizzo, through her infectious personality, playful humor and unflinching positivity, bent pop culture to her will, skyrocketing beyond indie music success to become a beloved superstar for our cynical, divisive times.

Raw emotion, no apologies, some cheeky profanity — all things fans who filled the Bucks arena to near-capacity expected when they bought tickets to a Lizzo concert.
But it was hard not to like Latto, who really made the most of her time. She did not hold back, strutting and twerking through “He Say She Say” while every single raunchy lyric was projected on the screen. Latto led “my body my choice” chants ahead of post-Roe rallying cry “(Expletive)” while her dancers held up “Protect Women’s Rights” signs. And Latto stayed in lockstep with her four dancers and whipped her hair through an arena-scale, roller-coaster remix of breakout smash “Big Energy.”In return, Lizzo Tuesday proclaimed the Milwaukee stop of her “Special” tour (named for her latest album) “a safe space to be yourself, to celebrate yourself.” Fans quickly took that mission to heart.

The performance is so slow that the organ it is being played on was not even complete before the music began. Pipes were added to the organ, which keeps the music steady thanks to a machine called a blower that provides a constant stream of air, in 2008.Fans of Cage, such as board chairman of the town’s John Cage Organ Foundation, Rainer Neugebauer, say that the performance is a rebuke of hectic modern life.Update, Nov. 28: There is competition for the world’s longest concert. On Twitter, Mark Polishook alerts Arts Post to Longplayer, a 1,000-year-long musical score that is being played by computers.The concert began in 2001 at the former St. Burchard church in Halberstadt, Germany, and is scheduled to conclude in 2640, for a duration of 639 years. Though Cage did not specify a duration for his piece, the length was chosen because the start date for the performance is 639 years after Nicolaus Faber built the first church organ. Other performances of the piece have lasted between 29 and 70 minutes.

The Halberstadt performance, by an automated organ, progresses so slowly that visitors have to wait months for a chord change (for one note change, in 2008, more than 1,000 visitors came to listen).
