Praising the opening night show in Portland, Oregon, The New York Times observed, “she showed just how colossal her intimate songs could be…[and] was just as convincing when she let loose, like on the rollicking upturned middle finger ‘Good 4 U.’” Rolling Stone said, “Rodrigo kept the energy high throughout the set…[‘Enough for You’ and] ‘1 Step Forward, 3 Steps Back’ were mashed up seamlessly for a very moving medley.” Variety marveled, “Olivia Rodrigo Wows the Sour Faithful with Triumphant Radio City Show.” The Detroit Free Press noted, “It was the sort of show where lifetime memories get made…There was a sizzling, organic charm to the whole affair.”
