Bishop Briggs and Mister Wives take to Chicago at the Salt Shed

About halfway through their tour, Bishop Briggs and Mister Wives took to the iconic music city of Chicago at the Salt Shed. It is an iconic, hip venue for any artist to play at in Chicago. The show that they put on was incredible, with all sorts of technicalities.

Raffaella opened for both of them, and she gave the crowd an energetic, joyful, and heartwarming opening to a fantastic show ahead.


Raffaella opened her set with a song from her latest EP: Live, Raff, Love (Act 1). She really knows how to engage with the crowd but keeps the show moving. The joy she brings on stage as she dances around like a ballerina is a sight to see.



You can always look back to the crowd while she performs and see smiles on everyone's faces. Raff played some more classics like Blonde and Lipstick, and Grown Up. On top of released songs, she also teased listeners with three brand new, unreleased songs that we can only think are going to be off of her upcoming EP--Live, Raff, Love (Act II)--which she has been hinting at for a while.

After Raffaella’s set finished, Bishop Briggs took the stage. The crowd was roaring with cheers, screams, and clapping the minute they saw her silhouette pop on stage in the dark with the overhead lighting glaring down.


The standout from the show was the stage curation. Three giant LED screens/boxes were on stage, each one was unique, either showing her face, animations, or lyrics to the song being sung. After her first song, Art of Survival, she talked to and connected with the crowd, instilling enthusiasm in attendees.



The engagement with Briggs and the audience was beautiful, she would wave to certain people in the audience and laugh throughout the show. You could see the joy on her face as she sang some more hits like Wild Horses, Baggage, and even a cover of Take Me to Church by Hozier!






The lighting of her set was incredible, the bright, rich LEDs brought the show to life and showed off Briggs's personality. She ended with her most famous song, River, which brought her set to a great and compelling end.

After Bishop’s set, MisterWives took to the stage of the Salt Shed, and once again, the crowd was roaring with cheers and applause. They opened their set with Out of Your Mind, and immediately, you could tell the show was off to a great start. They played many songs off their newest album, Nosebleeds, which came out this year, songs like Dagger, All the Same, and Trigger Pull. The crowd was just as energetic as before, if not more. The lighting and set design here were also incredible, with colorful, bright lights showing off the performers on stage.

Mandy Lee, the lead singer, brings a lively, dynamic, and strong presence as she takes up every part of the stage. Her movement is unlike anything, and her interactions with the audience were so enjoyable. The crowd knew what seemed like every word to every single song, which made the viewing experience that much more interactive and engaging. The lighting again was impeccable, with a slight haze over the whole stage, adding a very dramatic vibe to the set. There are only a couple more dates on this tour, so if you haven't gotten the chance to see this unbelievable show yet, I highly recommend it. It will be a night to remember and a concert you will NOT want to forget.
