Pop goddess Charli XCX brought unity and high energy to the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center (DLVEC) on Friday, October 21. Celebrating the 18th Annual PRIDE Night Parade, the singer pumped up participants and supporters with a one-night-only concert following the yearly celebration.
With a new single and music on the way, Charli XCX immediately reminded the crowd of her classics with the Billboard hits “I Love It,” “Break The Rules” and top-charting song, “Fancy.” Following memorable stage surprises such as pink balloons, white streamers and beach balls, the singer showcased a number of favorites from her debut album including “Drop That Kitty,” “Paradise,” and “Round and Round.” Fans cheered as she ended the night with her largest single to date, “Boom Clap.”
Celebrating the LGBT community and bringing the city together, DLVEC will donate a portion of the proceeds to Southern Nevada’s beloved non-profit Aid For AIDS Nevada (AFAN) to benefit those living with or affected by HIV/AIDS.
