R5’s “Sometime Last Night” Tour with special guest MAX hit the Beacon Theatre in NYC on Saturday night for a sold out show. It was one of those concerts where you could feel the energy and excitement from the crowd from the moment you walked in the door. Fans were decked out in homemade shirts and glow bracelets and singing R5 songs before they even took the stage. In other words, it was just our kind of concert.
MAX got the show off to a rocking start. His onstage energy and stage presence is off the charts. It was our first time seeing him and he easily became one of the best performers we’ve seen live. MAX showed off his impressive dance moves (including jumping into the splits) and his serious vocal range. If you’ve listened to his music before and wondered “but can he hit that note live?” The answer is yes, yes he can. He also showed the crowd he could rap, taking over Hoodie Allen’s verse in his hit “Gibberish.” MAX had just announced the release of his debut album, “Hell’s Kitchen Angel,” and played his new single “Holla,” a song best described as 🔥🔥🔥🔥. We’re sure he won over quite a few new fans and are hoping MAX will be back in NYC soon on a headlining tour!
Streets of Gold
R5’s set rocked the Beacon Theatre – literally. The entire house was dancing and jumping so hard we could feel the balcony shaking! Fans of all ages were singing and dancing to their fun pop-rock sound. We even caught quite a few parents rocking out! Their set included many of the tracks from their sophomore album “Sometime Last Night.”
R5’s new single is called “Dark Side,” and at times it seemed the band wanted to show just that, beyond their Disney beginnings. They certainly know how to rock and put on a good show.
The sold out show was streamed live on Periscope for fans that couldn’t attend thanks to a GoPro camera that the band members took turns wearing.
