A few hours after the interview I returned to the O2 Academy in Liverpool to see Walk The Moon rock the place with support from the fabulous Colony House, the queue snaked round the building and the room was buzzing with excitement. The venue itself was a great one, with a great view of the stage and really friendly staff. The show was brilliant, with both acts giving a brilliant, high-energy show that sent the crowd crazy.
Colony House opened for Walk The Moon and I was blown away. If the show had ended after their 30 minute set I would have left ecstatic, I picked up their album on the way out and highly recommend you check these guys out. I wish I had more videos to share with you guys but I was too busy being lost in the show. They had me captivated for the whole set and I can’t wait for these guys to come back to the UK.
When Walk The Moon came out the place came alive, it was a party that never seemed to dull with energy that lasted from the first second to the last. They started off the night with fan favourite ‘Jenny’ after walking out to the ‘Circle Of Life’ and its this fun, energetic atmosphere that carried on throughout the night.
It felt like a dance party, it was impossible not to dance along and the whole place was bouncing. Any negativity was left at the door and whilst the band fed off the energy of the crowd, the crowd fed off the energy of the band. The rare slower moments were filled with cheers and waving arms. One of my favourite moments of the show was ‘Shut Up and Dance’, the bands most recent hit and you could tell. The song is instantly recognisable and the crowd loved it, we all danced.
The night ended with ‘Anna Sun’, one of my personal favourites, which featured in an episode of The Vampire Diaries way back when. It was incredible seeing just how many dedicated fans there were, singing along to the older songs from lesser known albums. The band also paid tribute to David Bowie during the encore with a fabulous cover of ‘Let’s Dance’ which definitely had people dancing. It’s my favourite Bowie song and Walk The Moon definitely did it justice. The crowd absolutely loved it and it’s easy to see why.
It was a night I won’t soon forget, and one I’m eager to repeat. Walk The Moon will have you singing and dancing all night, the show is designed to be one to get you moving not one where you stand and watch them perform. For my US readers, the guys are touring with Misterwives this summer so grab your tickets now, and they’ve also released their first live album titled ‘YOU ARE NOT ALONE (Live at the Greek)’ which is available online now.
