A spectacular night filled with rainbows, glitter, pride, and many emotions is what it’s like to be watching Troye Sivan perform live. The venue was Margaret Court Arena, which was fairly large but still small enough to have a great view from wherever you were standing or seated.
Opening the show was the wonderful Nicole Millar, you may have heard her voice on Peking Duck’s track High. Following Nicole’s stellar performance was Tyde Levi who helped pump up the crowd with an incredibly loud DJ set.
Even if you’re unfamiliar with Troye Sivan I have no doubt that at some point during your day, maybe in your car, you’ve heard one of his recent singles – Youth or Wild. Troye’s set list started off with Bite, which, if I’m being completely honest, I wouldn’t have picked as the opening track, however it seemed to work and the crowd responded really well to it.
Some songs that were performed and received exceptionally well include, Fools, Wild, Youth, and my personal favourite Heaven. During Heaven the stage was flooded with rainbow coloured lights and beforehand Troye gave a speech on how lovely and supportive everyone in his life was when he came out as gay 6 years ago.
The best part of the whole night was how most of the crowd were waving pride flags or had glitter on their faces. This was the result of a tweet that Troye had sent out two days before. What an amazing and wonderful thing the Internet can be.
P.S – I'll explain on the day but MELBOURNE – bring pride flags to the show! Put glitter on ur face!!!! We need to be super queer that night

Would I pay good money just to experience that all again? HELL YES! I would very much recommend to everyone that you should see the talented Troye from Perth at least one time, or to even just give his album Blue Neighbourhood a listen.
