The Lumineers have been one of my favorite bands for awhile now and last night I had the awesome opportunity to see them live in concert! I had bought tickets for my sister and I way up in the nose bleeds for about $50 dollars each which wasn't a bad price at all! I didn't care where we were sitting, I just wanted to hear the Lumineers live! Also, the good thing about seeing the concert at Allstate arena in Rosemont, is that you can get a pretty good view of the stage no matter where you are sitting.
While Margaret Glaspy, one of the openers was playing, a woman tapped me on the shoulder and asked if it was just my sister and me. When I said yes, she handed me two floor seat tickets and said to go have fun! I could hardly believe it and while we were walking to our new seats, my sister had to tell me to be cool because I was so excited (haha). So instead of sitting on the second floor in section 214, we got to sit in floor seats in section 3! When we got to our new seats, Andrew Bird, the second opener started playing. He was pretty good, but at that point, I wanted to see the Lumineers and when they came on, they instantly rocked the house!
The Lumineers are one of those bands where I am familiar with all of their songs, so I was so excited for them to come on. About three songs in, they decided to go to a platform about half way down the floor seats so that everyone could get a better view of them playing! I was SO excited because they were close enough to where my sister and I were sitting, that we could make out their faces perfectly. I thought it was so nice of them to come out in the middle of the crowd to play five songs (which was a pretty decent chunk of the concert).
Honestly, I LOVED the concert, the only change I would have added was for the Lumineers to play just a little longer. I love how unique and relatable their music is. Even though Margaret Glaspy and Andrew Bird were good, The Lumineers were the best part of the show! Another cool aspect of the show was the huge amount of merchandise that The Lumineers were selling outside of the stadium. Of course concert t-shirts are always expensive, but I wasn't going to leave without one! I was shocked by the amount of cool t-shirts and other products that were for sale, like the Cleopatra record signed by all of the band members! I ended up getting a really cool shirt with flowers on it and it says The Lumineers. But there were so many cool options to choose from! I would definitely go to one of their concerts again, and if you are a fan of their music, I recommend you go! They love their fans and make sure that you have a good time at their show! Below I have posted some of the pictures I was able to take at the concert. I hope you enjoy them!
