Greyson Chance releases ‘Trophies’ in time for Pride

Published

on

OKLAHOMA CITY – As the tall slender dark-haired young musician prepares for a sound check on stage Friday preparing for his Oklahoma City Pride debut, back in Los Angeles his team released his highly anticipated new album via all digital and streaming platforms.

Greyson Chance, a critically acclaimed, chart-topping and singer-songwriter, with this new album Trophies- a follow up to his 2019’s critically praised ‘portraits’ EP, continues to display sharp writing chops, as well as his ability to push the envelope on his own musical boundaries.

From his recently released, dance-inspired hit “Hellboy” to his latest uplifting anthem “Nobody,” to the beautifully arranged, emotion-provoking ballad “Violet,” the piano aficionado openly takes listeners on a tour of his life. 

Friday is also the day Chance gets back on the road for his Trophies World Tour, starting in his hometown with the headlining spot at Oklahoma City’s Pride Festival.  Additional summer dates include shows in major cities across North America, as well as, European and South American dates to follow in the fall and winter of this year.

Chance will also embark on a second round of North American dates set for January 2022; full tour schedule below for reference.

TROPHIES releases after a long-awaited break for Chance. He last released his current single and dance-inspired anthem “Hellboy” after a strong slate of single releases through the pandemic, including well-received titles “Boots,” “Dancing Next To Me,” the revealing “Bad to Myself,” in which Chance opened up about his battle with an eating disorder, and this past January’s “Holy Feeling.”  Chance’s last EP was 2019’s critically acclaimed portraits, which to date has accumulated over 40 million streams, and topped #5 on iTunes’ Pop Charts, #1 on Apple’s Music Breaking Pop Playlist, and #3 on Apple Music’s Best of the Week Playlist upon its release. A portraits Word Tour followed that included 50+ sold out dates in North America, Europe, SE Asia, and China.

The Pride Month kick-off concert ran for three days at the LA Memorial Coliseum, and was the first live event of the season

Adam Lambert on stage at OUTLOUD: Raising Voices June 6, 2021

LOS ANGELES – Queen frontman and vocal powerhouse Adam Lambert hit the stage Sunday, belting ‘I Want to Break Free’ with trans German pop star Kim Petras, closing out a whirlwind weekend at the OUTLOUD: RAISING VOICES concert. The Pride Month kick-off concert ran for three days at the LA Memorial Coliseum, and is the first live event of the season – generating an unforgettable energy in the crowd and from the performers on stage. 

The Sunday concert featured a star-studded lineup, including ‘Black and Gold’ singer Sam Sparro, the electrifying VINCINT and a surprise performance from Pose star MJ Rodriguez. Additional performers included country star Chely Wright, R&B singer Zhavia Ward and The Voice contestant Angel Bonilla. The evening concert was peppered with video messages from LGBT+ icons and allies including Demi Lovato, Conchita Wurst and Yungblud. It was as a Pride concert should be, filled with dazzling vocals, flashy choreography and plenty of sparkle. 

Adam Lambert was at his usual best, decked out in a bedazzled kilt ensemble and belting notes from high heaven. However, the two standouts were MJ Rodriguez and VINCINT. MJ skipped out on stage accompanied by a group of dancers with the charisma and stage presence of a super bowl headliner. Effervescent and energetic, she set the tone for the evening and brought the daytime crowd to its feet.

As the sun went down, VINCINT strutted out on stage – also accompanied by two denim-clad dancers. With his signature riffs and flawless vocals, he was joined by Parson James, Qveen Herby and Ty Sunderland for an unforgettable set. After his group number, and a stunning dance break to Rihanna, VINCINT dedicated one of his last songs to his father who recently passed away. It was an incredibly moving moment – a reminder of the tremendous loss so many suffered in the past year, and of the gratitude felt by all those attending that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. 

The event was produced by LA events organization, JJLA, who partnered with Pride Live’s Stonewall Day on behalf of the Feel Something Foundation. To reach audiences worldwide, JJLA added an exclusive streaming partnership with Twitch – and connected with over 3 million viewers over the weekend. It was the perfect beginning to an incredible Pride Month.
