Fonda Theatre- Los Angeles, CA

        The Multi-Platinum group from Utah, known as Neon Trees have recently embarked on yet another tour, but this time adding a twist. The 27-date tour, deemed “An Intimate Night With Neon Trees” features the band at many of the smaller venues, giving fans a more personal experience. The tour kicked off on the 6th in Seattle, WA and made it’s way to Los Angeles, CA for it’s fourth date on June 11.

Anxious fans waited for hours outside the Fonda Theatre for doors to open so they could get as close as possible to the band. But being at the Fonda, a smaller venue, everyone in the crowd would have a good seat for the night. Just a little after 10:15, the curtain raised and the lights were dimmed. One by one the members of the band came onto the stage, each getting more and more cheers than the other. Then finally, with bleach blond hair, sporting a gold jacket, doc martins and a bow tie, lead singer Tyler Glenn entered the stage. Fans went absolutely insane as the dark lights over the band made the fans even more restless. Neon Trees wm-15wasted no time, starting their 16 song set with their newest single, Songs I Can’t Listen To. Phones instantly went up to record the new hit as fans sang along cheerfully.

Neon Trees are known for their 2010 hits Animal and 1983 off of their debut album, Habits but their live show keeps fans coming back for more. Tyler Glenn doesn’t stay in one place for more than a few seconds. He constantly came to the very edge of the stage which taunted the fans who tried vigorously to reach over the barricade to touch him. His dance moves made everyone in the mood to dance, regularly spinning, and standing on his toes, to which fans cheered extensively to. He smiled to the crowd often, letting them know that he cares about them.

The set continued with favorites including First Things First, Love In The 21st Century and the set closer Sleeping With A Friend which ended with a stage dive by Glenn. It was the perfect ending to an energetic set but that wasn’t all. The band came back on stage and performed two more songs including their most popular song to date, Everyone Talks and a cover of Dexys Midnight Runners’ Come On Eileen. 

Neon Trees’ intimate tour really delivered in Los Angeles. There was dancing, there was singing, there was stage diving and just an all around good time. If the show is coming to a city near you, don’t miss out.
