After abruptly postponed her concert date at Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center back in March just hours before it was intended to start, SZA finally made it up to the Philly crowd during her rescheduled performance on September 26.
While dazzling the crowd, sitting on a diving board and gazing out into a video screen ocean and sky, SZA apologized for not making it to her original show in the spring. “Philly!,” she exclaimed, “I’m sorry I wasn’t here.”
Then, after performing for an hour and 40 minutes, pulling tracks equally from SOS and her 2017 debut album Ctrl, SZA told the audience to stick around after the end credits of her show for an announcement.
Feeling some type of way for Philly after making them wait for months for the concert, not to mention her other cancelled Philly appearance, that was set for the now called off Made in America festival, SZA told her fans she has plans for a free show for the city, just as she did in New York.
“I did this free show thing in New York right? I would love to do it here because you guys deserve that.” Noting production would probably “be mad” at her for jumping the gun, SZA went on to say, “but for real, I want to make it up to you, I hope you had a good time tonight. I love you all so much, remember that I said this, free show. We’re gonna do it in Philly the same way, just open, first come first serve. I can’t wait to see you then, and by then the deluxe will be out, I love you so much.”
