What will the setlist be for the Self Esteem show in Sheffield?

While it’s not a guarantee that the setlist will be exactly the same for the singer’s Sheffield show, the setlist for Self Esteem’s Manchester tour date can provide some clues as to what gig-goers can expect.

Sheffield’s Self Esteem - aka Rebecca Lucy Taylor - will be playing a sold-out homecoming show at the city’s Octagon Centre on Friday, March 25.

The show on March 23 included ‘I’m Fine’ as an opener; ‘F**king Wizardry’; ‘Hobbies 2’; ‘Prioritise Pleasure’; ‘Girl Crush’; ‘Favourite Problem’; ‘(Hobbies)’; ‘How Can I Help You’; ‘Moody’; ‘You Forever’; ‘In Time’; ‘The 345’; ‘John Elton’; ‘I Do This All The TIme’; and then an encore comprising ‘Still Reigning’ and ‘The Best’.

Who are the support acts for Self Esteem’s Sheffield show?

Support for the Sheffield Self Esteem date will come from Phoebe Green, and Seraphina Simone.

Phoebe Green is a Manchester artist that makes empowering pop, and released her first album 02:00 AM in 2016.

Seraphina Simone is a London-based indie-pop proponent - check out her singles ‘Skin’, ‘Cherry <8’ and ‘Hollywood $$$’.

Do we know the stage times for the Sheffield Self Esteem tour?

Doors open at 7pm, but stage times haven’t been officially confirmed by the artist or venue as of yet for Sheffield.

However, the Manchester show also had two support acts – the timings were 7.30pm for the first support, 8.15pm for the second support, and then 9.15pm for Self Esteem – so you can expect something similar.
