Owl City Concert

Last night, I attended the All Things Bright and Beautiful Owl City tour concert.

It was, in a word, breathtaking.

Although we had to wait through two warm-up bands, by the time the concert started, everyone was extremely excited.

It opened with blue lights and the sound of rain, punctuated by flashes of white light and thunder sound effects, than Adam Young and the other musicians went on to perform many selections from over the years. As well as songs from their newest album, All Things Bright and Beautiful, there were older songs from Ocean Eyes and Maybe I'm Dreaming. Some of these included Cave In, Dear Vienna, Meteor Shower, and Vanilla Twilight.

There was also a new song,  I Hope You Think of Me.

Galaxies (which had phenomenal lighting effects)
And of course, the ever-popular Fireflies was performed, with Adam inviting the audience to sing along. Of course, when we did, we sounded about ten because everyone was smiling so hard.

After The Yacht Club was performed as the final song--with magnificent lighting throughout--and Owl City left the stage, everyone began chanting 'One more song! One more song!" To our delight, they complied, singing not one, but two more songs--Vanilla Twilight and If My Heart Was a House, bringing an end to an amazingly brilliant concert.
