The Marias were in Chicago on February 24 and 25 as part of their tour in support of their latest album, Cinema. Check out Jose Calvo’s photos from their first night in Chicago then follow the link after Jose’s recap for photos and review of their Friday, closing night concert.
On a chilly Friday night at Chicago’s Vic Theatre, The Marias performed in front of a sold-out crowd for their second show at the iconic music venue. The Cinema Tour is on the second half of its US dates. OGI and Evann Mcintosh opened the show warming up the crowd with their dreamy melodic music.
The Marias appeared in a beautifully lit, cinematic-style stage setting and were received with a warm welcome from their fans. Maria approached the mic with such peace and grace, her lovely aura resonating throughout the walls of the theater.
The band’s first song, ‘Just a Feeling,’ off of their latest album, Cinema, put the audience into a trance state of mind. Maria swayed in the middle of the stage locking eyes with everyone. Her engagement with her fans is more than just about music. She paused during their set to go check on a fan who seemed to be in distress. She asked if she was okay. Once she saw everything was fine, she resumed with the next song on the list.
And, their set felt as if it went by in the blink of an eye. 19 songs went by in a split second! They ended their encore with their hit song, ‘Cariñp,’ off their album Super Clean Vol. II.
