SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH – The energy at Vivint Arena was vibrant the moment Sam Smith stepped out onto the stage. The crowd was ecstatic to hear his new released music live and it’s safe to say, he made quite an overwhelming impression when performing for thousands in Salt Lake. His message of never being afraid to love who you love, and that love exists everywhere makes him an iconic figure for all that stumble upon his music.
The passion behind his lyrics tells a story of love every time. He knows what it’s like to yearn for someone who barely notices you’re alive. He’s well known with romantic desperation, the kind of state where you betray everything you believe in because you’re just so lonely. He relates to his fans so well because he’s not afraid to lay out his desires, so they can understand and relate to his struggles.
His pit stop in Salt Lake is one to remember since this was my first time seeing him perform live. The connection we had to his music was raw and nostalgic. Salt Lake City loved Sam Smith, and so did we!
