Conan Gray Concert Review


Giada Moralejo

Fans listen and sing along as Conan Gray plays at the St Augustine amphitheater. He played tons of songs from his older albums as well as his most recent.

Unreal. The only word that comes to mind when asked to describe my experience at the Conan Gray concert in St. Augustine.  

On September 18th Conan Gray, a popular pop artist, played at the St. Augustine Ampitheater, the second stop on tour. The concert was set to start at 7:30 pm, but the opener Kacy Hill came on stage around 7:00 pm.  

I was lucky enough to get a spot in the pit, and ended up about halfway to the stage, only waiting in line for about two and a half hours getting there at about 4:30 pm. While I did get dropped off at this venue there was free parking with the tickets, and the cars seemed to be moving smoothly. 

There were three other lines that led many people to be confused about where they were supposed to be. There was a general admission line, VIP line and a merch line. All of which started growing at about 5:00 pm. If I could give one piece of advice it would be to go with multiple people. I went with three people including myself and we were able to have someone stand in line to get in and to get merch.  

By 5:45 they had started letting us in, and the excitement began. The venue was small, but I never felt cramped or claustrophobic. Even in the pit there was plenty of room and tons of security guards handing out water. 

At 8 o’clock the curtains opened, and the crowd went nuts. Everyone screaming the lyrics to their favorite songs and throwing their hands up.   

Songs were played from two of his three albums. Throughout the concert he stopped and made little comments about Florida and what it was here; or about the songs and why he wrote them. My favorite songs played were Disaster, which he opened with, Astronomy, Movies, and the encore song Memories.  

Overall, I couldn’t have asked for a better experience, it was amazing from beginning to end. His evolvement with the audience was perfect and I can confidently say it was one of the best concerts I’ve ever attended.
