Phoebe Bridgers has shared her performance of the Punisher tracks ‘ICU’ and ‘Halloween’ at the L.A. Coliseum. Filmed as part of Versus Creative’s new 50on50 series, the show took place in March of 2020, with just fifty fans in the audience. Check out both videos, directed by Tony Corella, below.
The performance marks the first episode in Versus Creative’s 50on50 series, which aims to showcase artists performing intimate shows in iconic stadium settings. “As an L.A. native, Phoebe Bridgers is the kind of artist that we want to see perform a hometown show for a packed Coliseum someday,” said Nate Auerbach, co-producer of 50on50, in a statement to The Fader.
He added: “I could not think of a better artist to launch this new series with us. We were so lucky to have filmed this right before everything locked down. For the people there, it was their first time hearing Phoebe’s new music, and probably their last time seeing a live show for a very long time.”
Punisher, which landed on our Best Albums of 2020 (So Far) list, was released in June. Recently, Phoebe Bridgers shared the video for the album’s closing track, ‘I Know the End’, which was also filmed at the L.A. Coliseum.
