One concert reviewer noted that Troye Sivan “bounced like a Muppet.” When I saw him perform live I thought he was a bit affected. Now, why would we be saying such things about our hero Troye Sivan? “Don’t you guys want me to attend a Troye Sivan concert?”
We do want you to see Troye Sivan in concert but you’ve got to remember he was born June 5, 1995. He’s eleven days older than Alanis Morissette’s Jagged Little Pill!
On the concert stage, the kid is still learning who he is. Normally, that would be bad, but Sivan’s material is so polished, and his voice is so clear, watching him grow, mature, and find himself as a performer can be a real treat for his supporters.
Years down the road fans will be able to compare the young Sivan in concert to the old Sivan in concert. We can say this with confidence because Sivan is here to stay.
