Breakout Aussie pop artist Betty Who took on Chicago last Thursday as part of her Party in the Valley headline tour.

Claiming true to the tour’s title statement, she performed in what she claimed to be her favourite city of the run, playing through her best-known songs and material from second album The Valley.

Her audience of all ages were ready to sing and party all night, while Who danced with her partners to well-choreographed routines.

Betty closed her performance with a cover of Donna Lewis’ 1996 single I Love You Always Forever and fan favourite Somebody Loves You.

The evening was opened by the electro indie vibes of Vérité, who played a set including her recent single When You’re Gone.

She managed to get the crowd jumping, dancing and singing along ahead of Betty’s set, even if many of them didn’t know the lyrics to her songs.

Betty Who’s set list: The Valley, Glory Days, You Can Cry Tomorrow, Human Touch, Make You Memories, Pretend You’re Missing Me, Heartbreak Dream, Free to Fly, Blue Heaven Midnight Crush, Beautiful, California Rain, Wanna Be, Some Kinda Wonderful, Just Like Me, All Of You, Mama Say, I Love You Always Forever, Somebody Loves You
