Live Review: DREAMCATCHER ‘Live From Nightmare City’ Highlights – The Factory Theatre, Sydney (29.08.2019)

This week DREAMCATCHER brought their Invitation From Nightmare City tour to Australia – first stop at Sydney!

For those that don’t know, DREAMCATCHER is a seven-member K-Pop girl group under Dreamcatcher Company. They were formerly known as MINX. The group consists of seven talented girls – JiU, SuA, Siyeon, Handong, Yoohyeon, Dami and Gahyeon.

Here are some of our highlights from their Sydney show at The Factory Theatre!

The Fan Chants
Even before the concert began, InSomnia’s (DREAMCATCHER’s fandom) showed off their well-practised fan chants, to pre-show playings of ‘What’ and ‘PIRI’ – it was a roar that surprised even InSomnias themselves!

Just when we thought the fan chants could not get louder the show began and the perfectly timed chants continued through their first song ‘Fly High’.

Dance Covers and Solo Stages
Being their very first Australian tour, the girls’ prepared many special stages, including cover performance of Camila Cabello’s ‘Havana’, and a K-Pop dance medley; DREAMCATCHER danced to smash hits like BTS’s‘Boy with Luv’, EXO’s ‘Love Shot’, TWICE’s ‘TT’, and Red Velvet’s ‘Bad Boy’. 

The Choreography
We were so stoked to see the sharp and intricate choreographies of DREAMCATCHER in real life! Some of our favourites were definitely ‘Trap’ and ‘GOOD NIGHT’, but we can’t leave without mentioning Dami’s magic trick in ‘YOU AND I’.

The Fan interactions
DREAMCATCHER gave the Sydney crowd world-class fan service with their high-spirited nature. The girls even performed a short throwback of ‘Lucky Strike’ as requested by InSomnia.

During one of the talk breaks, the girls took it in turns to wear a bunny ear headband, giving lots of playful finger hearts and kisses to their loving crowd. They even conducted a small giveaway of signed totes mid-concert which was super sweet!

Stage Presence
If looks could kill then the girls murdered us; their fierce glazes had us at their mercy. Everything from the power poses to adorable winks made our knees weak!

We had so much fun spending the night with these rock princesses. We hope DREAMCATCHER will come back to Sydney again, soon!
