“Karratha have I messed you up?” That was the question Amy Shark asked after delivering a knock out performance at the Red Earth Arts Precinct in front of about 1000 Karratha residents. The June 2 performance was part of Shark’s 60 date See U Somewhere Australia tour which includes performances across regional WA. The Karratha gig, her first time visiting the Pilbara town, was upgraded to an outdoor concert after the original venue sold out within 30 minutes. The night started with a bang when Shark opened with her hit song Everybody Rise before All Loved Up and The Idiot had the crowd on their feet and dancing. Shark had the crowd in the palm of her hand as she gave it her all in a stellar performance and appeared surprised the remote crowd new all the lyrics to her songs. “This is my first time here and you know all the words,” she told the crowd. Shark described her concerts as an “experience” and said to the crowd she would make them feel sad, mess them up and then make them happy. True to her word, Shark went through a slew of her hits and new songs Worst Day of My Life and You’ll Never Meet Anyone Like Me Again had the crowd tearfully singing along. Shark then had the crowd in a frenzy with covers of Simply the Best and Mr Brightside. The back end of the concert included a medley of her biggest hits before the night finished with I said Hi. Thanking the crowd, Shark said their support meant she would have to return to the town in the future. “It doesn’t fall on deaf ears, I can hear you singing every line,” she told the crowd. Personal anecdotes also filtered through the night, bringing an intimacy and openness to the performance with Shark joking about how she bonded with one of her in-laws over recording a song with Keith Urban, her in-laws’ favourite artist.
