CONCERT REVIEW: Iggy Azalea at the Danforth Music Hall

Iggy Azalea hit up Toronto last Friday night at the Danforth Music Hall in support of The New Classic, her debut studio album released just four days prior. Toronto was the third stop on the synonymous tour and the “Fancy” rapper brought a first-rate show with back-up performers, twerking, and impeccable bars. The room was filled with eager young faces as DJ Wizz Kidd, Azalea’s official DJ, warmed up the room before her explosive performance.

The “Fancy” rapper trotted out from the doors of a 1950s-style hotel set with ‘Hotel Iggy’ emblazoned across the front. Wearing a Scarface-inspired outfit, she opened the show with the Steve Aoki and Angger Dimas-produced banger, “Beat Down.” She continued the show with “F**k Love” and “Bounce” in an energetic choreographed performance with her back-up dancers who wore matching velour booty short outfits with their respective nicknames on the back.

Halfway through the show, Iggy Azalea disappeared for a quick change while the windows of Hotel Iggy transformed into a screen to play the dinner scene clip from Boomerang (1992). Then, Iggy burst through the doors for “Pu$$y” in a fuchsia crop top and high-waisted shorts combo, as her dancers took turns spinning tricks on the newly installed poles on either side of the stage.

The show continued with fan favourite “Fancy,” whose popular video was inspired by the 1995 cult classic movie Clueless. As the track started, a group of fans held up a homemade sign with the lyrics “Who dat, who dat, dat do dat, do dat?” written in bold glittery letters. If one thing’s for sure, it’s that I-G-G-Y knows how to get a crowd dancing.

Without an encore, the show wrapped up with “Work”, the autobiographical song that details the rapper’s enduring journey into the spotlight. The atmosphere of the room was thick with love as everyone put their hands up and gold confetti gushed across the crowd as Iggy Azalea bid farewell to the city.
