I saw Chappell Roan at Gov Ball: Here’s what it’s like to see her live

If you are h-o-t-t-o-g-o get some Chappell Roan tickets, that makes two of us.

The eccentric, red-haired singer-songwriter is blowing up and for good reason, as her festival appearances are more like full-fledged concert experiences, combining amazing vocals, costume changes, danceable choreography and even a few heartfelt messages over the course of her short set time.

As a result, the way Roan drives crowds to music festivals around the country has become a phenomenon — or “Femininomenon.” Thankfully, I was fortunate enough to score tickets to Gov Ball which had an all-star line-up of today’s heaviest hitters joining Roan like SZA, The Killers and Carly Rae Jepsen.

Roan, 26, having just come from the sold-out Boston Calling Festival, was actually moved up in the Sunday lineup, kicking off a girl-powered celebration on the main stage along with Reneé Rapp and SZA to close out the final day of the fest. As the drone footage shows, it was a fully packed venue, and if you squint you’ll see a very excited Post staffer screaming with delight at the very front barricade.

Once her set began, the Chappell experience was almost as religious as her name suggests. Together, her band and fans create an electric, unified energy once her graphics hit the screen. It’s had not to connect with an artist engaging with videos from her younger self, displaying lyrics for the crowd to sing along with and even nodding to her LGBTQIA+ fans with the classic “Am I Gay” quiz.

And then there’s her costumes (see the bottom of the story to check them out).

Some compared her elaborate outfits to Lady Gaga, circa her meat dress era. Roan’s Gov Ball appearance was no different and did not disappoint, as the “Midwest Princess” emerged from a giant smoking red apple pipe painted head-to-toe in green, wearing a in a backless (well, booty-less) Statue of Liberty costume. The quick set included a costume change in the middle, as she changed into a taxi cab mini dress, yellow gogo boots with 1-800-ROAN on them and black and white checkered gloves.

Oh, we almost forgot about the music. Some may think festival sets are too short to enjoy all their favorite artists have to offer, but Roan really knows how to make the most of her short time onstage. To her fans’ delight, she hit the highlight reel with “Red Wine Supernova,” “My Kink is Karma,” “Casual” and, of course, the iconic “HOT TO GO!” complete with custom-printed pizza boxes thrown into the crowd. For those wondering, yes, “Naked In Manhattan” also made the cut.

Ready to sign up for a membership to Roan’s “Pink Pony Club” right now?
