Conchita Wurst Sings ‘Rise Like a Phoenix’ at Amsterdam Pride Closing Party (Video)

conchita wurst amsterdam gay pride closing party rise

Eurovision Song Contest winner Conchita Wurst was at Amsterdam Gay Pride this weekend, where she not only got to travel the entire gay pride route on a boat (well it is Amsterdam, the city of canals), she also gave several fabulous performances of ‘Rise Like a Pheonix’.

The performance she gave in Amsterdam in front of the biggest crowd, however, was at the Amsterdam Pride closing party at Rembrandtplein (Rembrandt Square).

A performance that saw Conchita Wurst treating the enthusiastic crowd to not only ‘Rise Like a Phoenix’, but also ‘Simply the Best’ and ‘That’s What I Am’.

Watch her ‘Rise’ performance in the video below.

What’s really interesting about Conchita here too is, even though the band is either too slow or too fast at different stages of the song and is playing far too loudly, Conchita still manages to pull off a stunning performance. The consummate professional indeed.
