Problematique and Feed The Beast out now!

Entering the stage concealed in an iron maiden, Kim launched into “Feed The Beast” before treating audiences to “King of Hearts” from debut album Feed The Beast and hit single “Unholy.” Split into five sections based on the story of Dante’s Inferno and helmed by director Will Baker (Kylie Minogue) and choreographers Brian and Scott Nicholson (Ariana Grande), the world-class show traversed Kim’s discography and her greatest hits – which included a provocatively curated can’t-miss section devoted to sex-positive EP Slut Pop before transitioning in to her spooky, Halloween-themed mixtape TURN OFF THE LIGHT

With mesmerizing costuming designed by Seth Pratt, Kim delivered a tightly choreographed and immaculately produced show worthy of a bygone era of pop. One of the highlights of the spectacle elicited gasps from the audience when she stabbed herself with her microphone while singing to a mysterious man from a bed on the stage. Moving between fan-favorite “Claws” and a theatrical reimagining of early hit “Hillside Boys,” the man is revealed in a jaw-dropping moment to be a pre-taped, masculine version of Kim in a hyper realistic, muscled silicone body suit – a moment that saw the crowd erupt into an explosion of shocked screams. 

Kim closed out the night with fan-favorites “Alone,” (which features diamond-selling hip-hop icon Nicki Minaj), “Heart To Break” and the live debut of the title track from her recent, surprise album Problematique
