Sabrina Carpenter’s sold-out emails i can’t send tour came to a close at The Regency Ballroom in San Francisco this past Sunday. The show kicked off with Sabrina sitting behind a keyboard under a large, heart-shaped archway. The lighting was dim, intimate, and ideal for Sabrina’s first song, a stripped-down rendition of “emails i can’t send.” Soon, energy shifted as the heart archway lit up and Sabrina ran around the stage in a sparkly bustier and mini skirt ensemble singing “bet u wanna,” another track from her latest album.
Sabrina paused various times throughout the show to connect with fans and talk about her experience with relationships and breakups. During the middle of the show, she performed a throwback – her 2015 debut single “Can’t Blame a Girl for Trying” – and fans eagerly sang along. Once Sabrina’s set concluded, fans cheered her name in anticipation for an encore and Sabrina delivered not one but two encore tracks; “decode,” followed by her most vulnerable song, “because i liked a boy.” Before singing, she explained that she was very afraid to release “because i liked a boy” because of all the negative press she was receiving following a messy public breakup. Since releasing the song, it has become evident that she has the complete support of her very many listeners. The show closed with dozens of red heart balloons falling on the audience from the ceiling, following the consistent theme of love.
