"The biggest party we've ever thrown"
About six years ago I found myself digging through YouTube acoustic sessions, looking for a new band to fall in love with. That’s when I came across this video of three college-aged boys in t-shirts playing their song “Anna Sun” in one of their mom’s living rooms in Ohio.
Just less than two years ago Walk the Moon was playing one of the smallest venues in Denver, the Larimer Lounge. Now, carrying both hit debut and sophomore albums on their shoulders, Walk the Moon was able to confidently take the stage headlining a sold-out Red Rocks show, and absolutely kill it.
The band made it clear how much they valued their Red Rock’s experience, calling it “the biggest party” they have ever thrown.
Their immaculate stage presence and energy proved that the band has truly evolved from just another pop-rock band from Ohio and into true, class-A rock stars.
And the crowd felt that energy, as a sea of hands waved in the air all the way to the top of the venue. The younger crowd of teenage fans lost their minds at the start of every song, every one of them being a sing-along worthy hit.
The radio dominating single, “Shut Up and Dance” ended the set, as fans roared for more.
Full circle, the band came back on and played their beloved “Anna Sun”; the song that fueled their skyrocketing, sold-out Red Rocks success they have conquered today.
