Melanie Martinez Kicks Off the Portals Tour in Denver

“Cry Baby” has arrived on Earth in the form of Melanie Martinez! The art-pop songstress kicked off her Portals Tour on May 30th in Denver, CO, celebrating her third album of the same name. She’ll continue these Melanie Martinez concerts for the next six weeks before wrapping up on July 15th in Montreal, QC.

Martinez took the stage in full costume and extraterrestrial makeup, leaning into her identity as the four-eyed, large-eared, otherworldly being you’ve seen on her Instagram page. It’s the latest rendition of her shape-shifting “Cry Baby” character that she’s utilized since her debut album in 2015. While she’s taken on the personality of a sweet schoolgirl, Victorian-style woman, and more throughout the years, this interplanetary goddess is the main character in her latest record. And she’s entering her Portals era in a big way.

The third Melanie Martinez album was just released in March 2023, and she wasted no time diving into these songs in Denver. She played Portals from front to back, diving in with songs like “DEATH” and “VOID” before belting out “FAERIE SOIREE,” “BATTLE OF THE LARYNX,” “MOON CYCLE,” and more in front of a frantically cheering crowd. There were also a whopping seven live debuts!

While she’s sampled new tracks at her early 2023 gigs, including stints at Lollapalooza Chile and a small Melanie Martinez concert in NYC, most of these Portals songs were dying to be sung. She performed “SPIDER WEB,” “LEECHES,” and “WOMB” for the first time in Denver, plus a three-song encore made up entirely of live debuts. We love this for you.

While none of her older tracks were performed at this Melanie Martinez concert, it’s only because she gives each and every project of hers the love it deserves. And you’ll have an out-of-this-world experience on the Portals tour. Check out the full setlist here, and more Melanie Martinez concert dates below:
