Briston Maroney Vibes Out with Chicago at Lincoln Hall
Written By | Eduardo Perez
On Thursday March 3 rd , Briston Maroney came to Chicago for his 27th stop on his Sunflower World Tour. He had Chicago Native Jackie Hayes as a special guest opener to warm up the crowd before he hit the stage. Lincoln Hall is a small music venue in the heart of Lincoln Park which always provides a fun experience for its patrons.
The show got going quickly once Jackie Hayes got on stage. Jackie’s performance was so simple yet enjoyable. She played mostly new songs from her upcoming project as she stated in the beginning of the set. Overall, Jackie and her guitarist and drummer played fantastic and got the crowed hyped up for Briston Maroney.

The crowed almost completely doubled right before Briston took to the stage. His stage set consisted of bright yellow light bars decorated in sunflower vines which brought the story and idea of his album “Sunflower” to life. Once Briston began performing the room lit up with people singing, dancing and nonstop smiling. Everyone even the staff was having a good time and vibing out to Briston’s music. He played hits off the album such as “Freeway”, “Rollercoaster”, and “Bottle Rocket”.

He also introduced the members of his band who are his childhood friends and told stories about their friendship. This made the show feel more intimate apart from the small and cozy venue. At the end, he closed with his popular song and my favorite, “Freaking Out on the Interstate”.
The crowd sang the entire song with him and cheered as he closed out. Ultimately, Briston decide to do an encore and play another very well-known song “Caroline”. Everyone walked out of the venue discussing how good Briston was and how they could not wait for him to come back to Chicago.
