Up-and-coming British pop music icon Maisie Peters finished off the west coast segment of her The Good Witch Comes to North America Tour with a highly anticipated show at the historic Hollywood Palladium this past weekend.
Peters previously played at the Troubadour, El Rey, and Wiltern theaters respectively on her prior concert tours though Los Angeles, packing the house each time with screaming girls dressed mostly in pleated black mini-skirts, black boots, and baby tees with witty messages emblazoned across their chests. The artist’s rapid rise towards stardom has been fueled partly by her catchy and/or personally relatable tunes like “Not Another Rockstar”, “Cate’s Brother”, and “Body Better”… but also thanks to securing the direct support slot on Ed Sheeran’s worldwide stadium tour. (Peters signed onto Sheeran’s Gingerbread Man Records label in 2021 after leaving Atlantic Records, and subsequently claimed her first #1 album on UK charts this year with The Good Witch.)
Opening the show at the Palladium was New Jersey singer/songwriter Grace Enger, who performed a solo-acoustic set featuring a few of her beautifully-emotional songs and loads of her adorable personality. Grace also returned to the stage at the end of the evening, to sing “History of Man” with Maisie during the encore.
