There isn’t anything quite like a Valley show. Valley brought their “Lost in Translation” tour to Minneapolis this past Tuesday night and it was a clear picture of how much this band has grown.
Valley has come through the Twin Cities a few times over the past few years as a supporting act and in 2022 they played their first Minneapolis headline show at 7th Street Entry. Back in 2022, as I stood there amidst the sold-out crowd at the Entry, I knew Valley would soon be back, headlining an even bigger venue, and they did just that. They continue to grow and deserve every second of it.
From the moment they took the stage at Varsity Theater on Tuesday night with “There’s Still a Light in the House,” the crowd went wild. Following were “Throwback Tears” and “Lost in Translation.” Valley’s energy on stage is so infectious. Their overall vibe allows you to escape reality a bit and just have the time of your life singing and dancing along.
Valley performed a mix of tracks from previous albums, and a few from their upcoming album, ‘Lost In Translation,’ which will arrive on June 23, 2023. No matter which song was playing, fans danced and sang along without missing a beat, with awe sparkling in their eyes.
Highlights of the night include the performance of “CHAMPAGNE”, “Last Birthday”, “Break for You”, and “Sports Car.” The band also played “Like 1999” which of course was a favorite and a fun way to end an unforgettable night.
Valley came back on stage for a 2-song encore which included “Paper Cup (sorry for myself)” and “hiccup.” Overall, Valley continues to put on an incredible show and it’ll only go up from here. The band teased that they will be back in Minneapolis soon after the release of their new album, and I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait.
