Eliza and the Delusionals – The Fillmore – Philadelphia, PA – November 9, 2022
On Wednesday, The Fillmore Philadelphia welcomed Australian indie rock band Eliza & The Delusionals! After their debut album release Now and Then in May 2022, they are now on tour supporting Silversun Pickups. The group – consisting of Eliza Klatt, Kurt Skuse, Ashley “Tex” Martin and Ruby Lee – definitely gave fans a night to remember.
Beginning their set with “Give You Everything” and “Pull Apart Heart,” the show started off strong as the room filled with passionate sound, as well as incredible light design. The stunning vocals of lead singer Eliza Klatt radiated throughout the room as she hit incredible high notes and strong vocal runs. Their upbeat sound had fans off their feet, and their chemistry on stage captivated the crowd. They continued their set with “Swimming Pool,” “You,” and my personal favorite of the night, “Halloween.” They put on a phenomenal performance as they interacted with each other on stage and with the crowd, even giving a little Philly shoutout by dedicating a song to the Philadelphia Flyers mascot Gritty, who they said they found quite cute!
There was never a dull moment in Eliza & The Delusionals set, as the powerful instrumentals rang through The Fillmore. Their performance was strong and passionate, and their connection as a group was clear as each member was introduced and given the spotlight throughout the night. They put on a phenomenal show that was so much fun to watch, and it was clear that they were having equally as much fun up on stage!
As a newer listener to Eliza & The Delusionals, I was very impressed by their performance, and loved the atmosphere they created. Make sure to go see them live as they continue their tour with Silversun Pickups and stream their debut album Now and Then!
