Watch Yungblud kick off his 2023 world arena tour in Cardiff

Check out official images, fan-shot footage and the setlist from the theatric arena show here

Yungblud began his 2023 world tour in Wales last night (February 16) – see official images, fan-shot footage and the full setlist below.

The Doncaster artist – real name Dominic Harrison – took to the stage at Cardiff International Arena in support of his self-titled third studio album, which came out last September.

Kicking off his 20-song set with ’21st Century Liability’ (the title track from his 2018 debut record), Yungblud treated the crowd to cuts from across his entire discography (per Setlist.FM).


The theatric gig began with a big screen displaying a moody black-and-white rain visual as storm sound effects played out over the PA. Eventually, Harrison appeared in silhouette before large wings emerged from his back.

When the curtain dropped, the star repeatedly instructed the crowd “jump!” while a huge pyro display was unleashed. Watch here:

Yungblud later played a live version of ‘I Think I’m OKAY’, his 2019 collaboration with Machine Gun Kelly and Travis Barker. Elsewhere, he stripped things back by delivering an intimate piano performance of ‘Sweet Heroine’.

Appearing on a B-stage, Harrison introduced ‘Medication’ by giving an impassioned speech about what he and his fanbase have built together. “This community is so fucking beautiful,” he said, “because it’s so fucking real!”

“This started out with fucking 10 of us coming to each other [and] going, ‘I’m fucking sick and tired of people looking at me like I’m a fucking freak or a stranger’,” the artist continued.


“Do you wanna know what? In this life, people will try and pull you down […] because they can’t give themselves to the idea that individuality is the most pure thing you can fucking own.”
