After our recent conversation with Marina, PopMatters captured Marina and the Diamonds on stage at Terminal 5.

Marina and the Diamonds

(6 Dec 2012: Terminal 5 — New York)

PopMatters writer Joe Vallese spoke to Marina Diamandis ahead of her show at Terminal 5 in New York and his class field trip to the concert. The sold out show was teeming with youths who knew all the words to the pop star’s tunes, excited for every one of them. The high energy, short set from openers Icona Pop got the audience warmed up for the equally high energy main draw.
And Marina kept fueling the fire. The sweaty audience rocked out to her many hits including “Bubblegum Bitch”, “Sex Yeah”, “Hollywood” and the finale “How to be a Heartbreaker”.

You may not see it from the photos, but Marina’s performance combines club-sized, dazzling lights with an intimate feel as personal accoutrements, from a stuffed bear to a toy dog, are prominent on the stage and a couple of outfit changes are not out of place throughout the night. The bedroomy feel demonstrates how comfortable Marina is with her fans and we can tell she’s become quite adjusted to her role as a pop princess.
