As the Lumineers’ headlining set approached, the heavens opened and rain poured down on the faithful crowd. But the bad weather was not stopping the crowd from seeing this x2 Grammy-nominated band. As the opening music to the title track “BRIGHTSIDE” played, all thoughts of the rain were put away and the crowd roared to life.
The setlist ebbed through foot-stomping tracks like “Ho Hey” to more melancholic and reflective tones such as “Sleep on The Floor”. Each song selected from their 3 albums was a joyous singalong, but none so much as the closer, and my personal favorite, “Stubborn Love”. As the band slowly left the stage, exchanging hugs and tossing setlists into the crowd, their intention is clear… this show is a carefully crafted love letter to 10 years as a band, and more so, the fans they’ve captivated along the way.
The Lumineers continue on their Brightside World Tour throughout the summer and into autumn.
