Steve Lacy’s ‘Give You The World’ Tour comes to Radius Chicago

Alternative R&B singer, songwriter and producer Steve Lacy brought the Feel to Radius Chicago on Wednesday night for the third stop of his second headlining tour.

“Welcome to the Give You The World tour,” he told the crowd gathered at the warehouse-style venue in Chicago’s East Pilsen neighborhood. “Let’s get that shit.”

The 24-year-old guitarist opened his show with “Buttons”, the fourth track from his second full-length album, “twins rights.” He then jumped straight into the album’s lead single, “Mercury.” Meanwhile, he played acoustic guitar while concertgoers grooved with their friends, families and partners.

Lacy wrote “Gemini Rights” after breaking up with his boyfriend. The lyrics touch on his feelings of anger, sadness, longing and confusion, but his words are “all for love and all ridiculous toohe said to apple music.

“‘Gemini Rights’ brings me closer to what makes me a part of all things, and that is feelings,” Lacy said in the statement. “Feelings sometimes seem to be the only true things.”

Still, Wednesday’s set paid tribute to the full scope of Lacy’s career as he performed nine songs from previous projects.

“I released an album called ‘Gemini Rights’ a few months ago. I’m going to play some shit from it,” Lacy told the audience at the start of Wednesday’s show. “But you all know this isn’t my first job, right? I dropped some shit called “Apollo XXI” a few years ago. Let’s drop some of this.”

During his rendition of “Only If” from “Apollo XXI,” Lacy softly sang, “If I could travel through time, I’d say to myself from the past, ‘You’ll make it’ — before he pulled into a rhythmic performance of his funk.” -Hit “Playground”.

Lacy dove into the songs of “Gemini Rights,” sharply delivering the acerbic lyrics of “Static,” the album’s opening track, with only quiet piano instrumentation in the background.

Hope you find peace for yourself / New friend won’t fill the void‘ Lacy began before pausing to reflect aloud on how he was ‘pissed that day’ and restarting the song.

“Show teeth! Damn, we’re being silly,’ he said. “Stay silly your whole life.”

And after playing the track, he complimented his fans.

“Damn, you guys are great,” Lacy said. “You make me feel great. Let’s just trade the amazingness.”

Lacy addressed his encore to his longtime fans. He left the heartbreaking “Gemini Rights” to end the show with two tracks about falling in love: 2015’s “CU Girl” and 2017’s “Dark Red.”

He will be making 24 more stops across North America through mid-November, sharing his feelings of anger, longing and desire with audiences at every show.
