Marina is such an assured performer. I really don't think she needs anything more than a band, a keyboard and a curtain. If anything the theatre school dancers on the last tour kinda proved that. She's most in her element on her own.
Maybe a cute stage set-up or some props would be fun, but she doesn't need it. And the budget is presumably tight so I can't be mad.
I wouldn't be surprised if the cost of the Neon Nature stage was what trapped her into being unable to cancel / reschedule dates when a family member got sick. I'm just thankful she's got a band back and got rid of the dancers, she's a strong enough performer on her own.
The setlist isn't bad actually, but Primadonna could've easily replaced Handmade Heaven. I'm, maybe naively, still wondering if we're going to get some Electra Heart anniversary dates down the line.
After she straight refused the idea of doing a Bubblegum Bitch Music Video and said “YOU CANT GO BACK TO THE PAST, NO!!” I really doubt it. But she also tried to sell clothing based on some Electra Heart stuff/Collection so who knows dd.
The dancers on the last tour were some of the most embarrassing things I've seen a major artist do. I think on the European leg they played instruments as well which kind of explained the discrepancies in skill level, but when I saw them on the US leg they were just dancing and it was very bad.
