For several years, it felt like Minnesota had Lizzo all to ourselves. Now we’re sharing her with the world, but whenever she returns, it feels like a homecoming. Last night, in the first of two shows this week at the Armory in Minneapolis, she was feeling the love with a radiant performance.

Photographer Mary Mathis was on hand to document the glorious drama of the moment. “Love that I got to capture a really meaningful pause on stage,” she wrote on Instagram. “Crowd going absolutely wild and Lizzo just taking it all in.”
