On February 25th, Chappell Roan brought her “Naked in North America” tour to Brooklyn Bowl in Philly. Both the crowd and I were lucky enough to catch the singer on her first-ever headlining tour, where she brought enough energy, talent, and excitement to make it seem like she’s been doing this for decades. Having local drag queens from each city open for her shows, Chappell was able to create a beautiful and eccentric experience full of sequins, disco balls, and fishnets for her fans every night. She played hits like “Naked in Manhattan,” “Casual,” and “My Kink is Karma,” dancing her absolute heart out one song after the next. Chappell Roan’s “Naked in North America” tour radiates an energy that I think anyone lucky enough to experience will fall in love with.
