Lizzo definitely checked off an item on her bucket list over the weekend. After being a fan of Incubus since she was a teen, the 35-year-old musician got the chance to perform alongside the California rock band during its Friday (Oct. 6) concert at the Hollywood Bowl — after which she shared her excitement on Instagram.
“Those who know me… KNOW,” the star wrote, sharing videos of her passionately playing flute next to lead singer Brandon Boyd during “Aqueous Transmission.” “This is BEYOND a dream and FULL CIRCLE.”
“I saw @incubusofficial perform 20 years ago at @woodlandspavilion for morning view (I’ve been a fan since S.C.I.E.N.C.E),” she continued. “And now to be at @hollywoodbowl performing Aqueous Transmission with @sashabefluting — I WAS A PUDDLE ON THE FLOOR — thank you INCUBUS for everything but also for inviting me on stage and making my childhood dreams come true 💖💖💖💖”
Later, Lizzo shared footage of her jamming out to the concert with friends in the audience, along with one clip of her posing for photos with Boyd and bandmates Mike Einziger, Chris Kilmore, José Pasillas and Nicole Row. (Row subbed for bassist Ben Kenney on Incubus’ tour this year.) “IM NOT OVER IT 😫😫😫😫😫😫😫😫,” the “Truth Hurts” artist captioned the post.
“Thank you @lizzobeeating for joining us at the Bowl,” read a post on Incubus’ Instagram account. “Was an honor to@share the stage with you. 🥂”
The Hollywood Bowl show marked the official end to Incubus’ 2023 tour, which featured support from Paris Jackson and BADFLOWER. The band will play at SEMA Fest in Las Vegas in November before embarking on an Australia tour in 2024.
Lizzo wrapped up her own Special Tour in July following 10 months of performances in North America and Europe. In August, she was hit with a lawsuit from a group of former backup dancers who alleged hostile work conditions and sexual harassment, accusations the Grammy winner emphatically denounced as “false” and “sensationalized.” A couple weeks ago, Lizzo filed a request that the case be dismissed by a judge.
