Mike Posner returned to Boston last night, making a stop at the House Of Blues on his 'unplugged tour' in support of his forthcoming album Pages. The event was held in the venue's lavish Foundation Room, a luxuriously decorated upper level that is usually reserved for members and VIPs. It was the perfect atmosphere for the intimate, stripped-down set the Posner was going for, which he described in an interview with Examiner last week. "My fans never get to hear me sing like this or play like this…why not... like, let’s let everyone come into the living room." The show featured some of Posner's top hits, exclusive songs, new material as well as spoken words straight from his notebook and stories behind his music.
As low key as it sounds, the sold out room of fans did not let it get too quiet, breaking out into song with Posner on songs like Top of the World. Everyone seemed to be thoroughly enjoying themselves and genuinely happy to get a little more up close and personal with him. "Probably one of the best, most intimate shows I have ever been to. Mike is one of the most humble performers" one fan tweeted out. "@MikePosner show in Boston absolutely perfect & the performance was flawless a true honor to attend" said another. Many fans also posted photos with Posner from outside the venue last night.
