She avoided all of the over-the-top gimmicks of many of today’s artists and let her songs do the speaking for her. Her electro-pop songs each had their own unique charm. Robyn’s vocals were nearly flawless and the large crowd was treated to an exciting show of fan favorites such as “Dancing On My Own”, “Love Kills”, “Indestructible” and “Show Me Love.”
