ZHU brought his Immersive Live Tour to the Minneapolis Armory last week, and it was a night that fans will remember as pure electronic bliss. The show featured a massive, high resolution LED wall that projected stunning visuals, as well as a number of special effects that are requirements for EDM shows – lasers and haze.
ZHU opened the show with his hit song “Take My Soul,” and the crowd immediately erupted in excitement. He then played a mix of old and new songs, including “The Fall,” “Automatic,” and “Good Life.”
One of the highlights of the show was ZHU’s performance of his song “Cocaine Model,” a collaboration with rapper A$AP Rocky from 2014’s EP “The Nightday”
ZHU closed out the show with his biggest hits, including “Hometown Girl,” “Came for the Low,” “Love That Hurts,” “Zhudio54,” “Yours,” and perhaps his most well known song, “Faded”
ZHU’s Immersive Live Tour at the Minneapolis Armory was the first time the San Francisco based musician performed for an audience in Minnesota, outside a brief outlier show at Sommerset Amphitheater in 2016. While 2016 feels like a lifetime ago, eager fans were excited for a long overdue night of unforgettable music and visuals. Hopefully he makes his return here sooner than another 7 years!
