Maggie Rogers Celebrates New Record With Intimate NYC Show

There’s no other artist quite like Maggie Rogers, and she continues to prove it with the Don’t Forget Me album release cycle. Along with the just-announced fall headlining tour, Rogers’ first time in arenas, she’s celebrating with several intimate shows across the US.

The first took place in the cozy and iconic 1,100-capacity Irving Plaza in New York City on April 13th. And it was a night of live debuts and eternal love for Rogers’ most beloved friends and fans. Tickets were sold in-person that morning for just $25, further establishing Rogers’ dedication to fair ticket prices and providing everyone with a fair chance to see her perform. It also meant that her biggest supporters were there bright and early to reserve their spots, and boy, was it worth it!

Fans got up close and personal with the platinum singer as she dove into one live debut after another. With all her instruments by her side, she worked through her newly-released third album, Don’t Forget Me, from front-to-back. At least, in the beginning! Rogers sang “It Was Coming Along” and “Drunk” for the first time before serenading the crowd with “So Sick of Dreaming” and “The Kill.” Next, she told the crowd that she was going out of order before crooning along to a 2019 favorite, “Fallingwater,” and they were just fine with it.

She next took several audience requests, gracefully singing lesser-known Maggie Rogers songs like “Symphony,” “Back In My Body,” “Say It,” and “Love You For A Long Time.” Whatever the fans had in mind, she happily obliged…and it was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for everyone at Irving Plaza. It’s not every day that you get to banter with your favorite artist, especially one set to play major arenas like the Kia Forum in Los Angeles and Madison Square Garden in the coming months.

But as we’ve learned from her introspective songs and rise to fame in recent years, there’s nothing ordinary about Maggie Rogers. Her caring and charismatic nature has made her a mainstream success, music festival mainstay, and so much more. She continued to impress at Irving Plaza with live debuts of “If Now Was Then,” “I Still Do,” On & On & On,” and “Never Going Home," eventually launching into more audience requests before ending the set with a 2022 single, “That’s Where I Am.”

But you didn’t think she was done, did you? For the encore, Rogers re-emerged for the first performance of “All The Same” before finally closing the curtain with the titular track. All in all, she played Don’t Forget Me in its entirety to give fans the full album experience. Along with quite a few deep cuts and old favorites to remind you why you fell in love with Rogers. She delivered a similar setlist at the next intimate Maggie Rogers concert in Philadelphia and will follow up in Boston, MA, on the 16th and Chicago, IL, on the 19th.

For those lucky enough to attend, it was the ultimate adventure before Rogers’ arena tour, and yet another testament to her incredible artistry and dedication to her fans. Who else is excited to experience the Don’t Forget Me era with the singer? Check out the full Irving Plaza setlist here.
