Vocal Powerhouse

Aguilera is still the vocal powerhouse, that she has always been but has seemingly gotten better with experience throughout the longevity of her career. As a pop star, it was really impressing to see that Aguilera still sings live, and is not using tracks for her vocals as most pop stars do when they are powering through a long set full of dancing, production, wardrobe changes, and running around. However, Aguilera proves that she is still the vocal powerhouse she has always been, but her vocals truly shine during her live performance of “Ain’t No Other Man,” “Deserve,” and her Demi Lovato assisted “Fall In Line.”


The Liberation Tour has some breath-taking visuals between songs, during songs, and an even more impressive production on stages often too small for Aguilera. Bringing in fog, Co2, screens that drop between songs for visual additions, a staircase filling the center of the stage, a throne [for the queen, Christina Aguilera obviously..], golden glitter during “Deserve” and “Accelerate,” very colorful vibrant lighting, and even a riser that brings Aguilera to the highest height of the stage during the intro song “Maria” with a set of broken glass doors.


Aguilera has been known her for powerhouse vocals, but she is also known to put on an impeccable performance and what is a performance without dancers and choreographed routines including her and her dancers. With flawless routines during each and every single song with the exception of during “Say Something,” dancers give a great addition to the performance giving fans a visual for the song. Her talented dancers were really showcased during their introductions and also during Aguilera’s performance of latest single “Accelerate.”


Dancers throwing roses during the opening segment “Searching For Maria,” Broken glass doors breaking open to introduce Aguilera to the stage, video visual art, telling the story of songs through dancing, outfits matching perfectly with each song, the overall story-telling aspect of the Liberation Tour.

Anthems & Setlist

Aguilera is known to release smash hit after smash hit, anthemic songs and this tour really allows her to fit as many songs as possible into her 2-hour set including her classic hits like “Fighter,” “What A Girl Wants,” “Ain’t No Other Man,” “Genie In A Bottle,” “Dirrty,” and even “Lady Marmalade.” But it also allows her to showcase her new music from her latest album, Liberation but also songs that she didn’t get the chance to tour from her album, Bionic, like “Elastic Love,” “Woohoo,” and the album’s title track “Bionic” of course.


Aguilera had several impeccable costume changes and flawless attire including Japanese inspired ensembles, a high-shouldered sequin gown, a red ruffle Spanish-inspired dress, oversized jackets, a beautiful white gown with thigh-high white boots, and even her black and red leather ensemble with chaps straight from her “Dirrty” music video. She has also been surprising fans by adding in some new outfits on different tour dates that haven’t been seen before. Her wardrobe is very unique on this tour but also showcases outfits that are the perfect fit for Aguilera’s songs as she has several outfit changes throughout the set almost wearing a new outfit every other song.

Aguilera looking more beautiful then ever at 37 years old, after having children, and still has a great body type and look to her. Wearing some very alluring makeup, perfectly tied up hair, with a glistening white smile that makes it very evident that she is at her happiest point in her career and loves her fans.

No matter what they say
Words can’t bring you down”

Intimate Setting

Aguilera fans are used to seeing her in massive sold out arenas and at times even stadiums but the Liberation tour is different, she chose to tour in more intimate settings to give her loyal fans a chance to see her return to the stage after a decade close-up and more personal at venues that between 2.5k-10k in crowd size filling them to capacity with her “fighters” and day one die hards that make her happy as they sing every word back to her.

Supportive Fans

Aguilera’s fans are very very very supportive which is clearly obvious as to why her shows sell out rapidly, her music tops the charts, and she is still able to tour tens of years later after the launch of her incredibly successful career. The longevity of her career is impeccable as some pop stars have a few hits and fall off the grid but not Aguilera, she took a break of about ten years and came back better then ever and her fans are still here supporting her every step of the way. Her fans even gave her a 5-minute long standing ovation at one of the shows, but I am sure that wasn’t the only show that she received such an honor from her fans.

Limited Dates/Tickets Selling Fast

The tour is very limited, not many shows as a normal tour would have, tickets are selling fast as fans anxiously awaited her return to the stage. Whilst others have also waited to see her in her prime. Make sure you grab a ticket to the remainder of dates on the trek as its coming to a close soon.
