5SOS Sell Out Madison Square Garden on “Sounds Live, Feels Live” World Tour

We can officially say “5SOS sold out MSG!!!”  That’s a feat of epic proportions, especially for a band that hasn’t been around that long.  It’s hard to believe that just two short years ago the guys were headlining the nearby Best Buy Theater, which holds about 2,000 people.  Luke, Ashton, Calum, and Michael played every song we could have asked for on this tour and you could hear the entire arena singing every word!

The band played their new single, “Girls Talk Boys,” for the first time live at MSG.  The track had just dropped the day of the show, but fans already knew all of the words and kept singing like they had been all night.  The performance of the funky song saw lead singer Luke Hemmings jump on the piano for a bit – cue the swoons.

Drummer Ashton took the time to remind the crowd to always follow their dreams, saying he went from playing in his garage to playing in the legendary Madison Square Garden.  He also said the crowd was the loudest he’d ever heard, despite having played many other shows.

Before going into the first verse of “Jet Black Heart” solo, Michael soaked up the applause from the crowd.  Just when you thought he was going to keep going, the crowd just got louder and louder.  It was one of the most energetic crowds we’ve ever seen at MSG (or anywhere for that matter!)  We’re so proud of how far 5SOS have come so far and can’t wait for what’s next!

Patent Pending Release “Six Feet” Video

Patent Pending just released the brand new video for their song “Six Feet” and it’s pretty trippy!  The song is just as catchy as every song  PTPG have put out in the past.   It’s about working every day of your life, and the video has some neat special effects that set this video apart from the rest of PTPG’s past work.

Watch the video for “Six Feet” below!

The guys are heading back to the UK for Spring Break this April!  The guys are taking their new album, “Riot Hearts Rebellion” to the people and they’re ready to party.

The new album is full of party anthems (“Last Time That I Saw You”), kiss off tracks about being yourself (“Until The Sun Comes Up”),  and uplifting songs that will get you through the darkest times (“It’s All Good Today”)  They even work in a Blink-182 riff into “Started In My Head” which might be our favorite track on the album.  PTPG have a knack for writing hooks and lyrics that will have you bouncing along and singing for days!

Our Favorite Concerts of 2015

At the beginning of 2015, we decided to keep an official tally of all the shows we went to this year.  That lasted until about February, when we totally lost count.  Here are some of our favorite shows from this past year!

Thomas Rhett – The Paramount – Huntington, NY – February 2015
Thomas knows how to put on a show and gets the audience dancing to every song.  This was one of those shows where everyone knew something special was happening – TR had just had his fourth #1 single from his debut with “Makes Me Wanna,”  setting the tone for the “Tangled Up” era.  We’re glad he found his way into music because we can’t imagine him NOT shaking his south side on stage!

P1150320
Hunter Hayes – Ike Hall – West Point, NY – October 2015
We will travel almost anywhere for Hunter Hayes and he ALWAYS makes it worth it.  This was probably one of the craziest shows we went to in 2015 – the cadets were crowd surfing!  Something we never thought we’d see at a Hunter Hayes show.

P1360266

Sam Hunt – Irving Plaza – New York, NY – February 2015
They say you never forget your first headlining tour and Sam Hunt’s sold out in a flash but for those lucky enough to score tickets to the “Lipstick Graffiti Tour,” you know that this tour was a non-stop singalong from start to finish.

P1140505
The Main Event Tour (NKOTB, TLC, Nelly) – Various Venues – June 2015
How can you go to a NKOTB show just once?  We have no idea because we went to this tour three nights in a row and we still wanted more!  This photo is everything you need to know about this tour.

P1230797

Shania Twain – Madison Square Garden – New York, NY – June 2015
Shania doesn’t tour often and she announced in advance that this would be her last ever tour (we hope she changes her mind!)  At least Shania went out with a bang!  The “Rock This Country Tour” was full of Shania’s hits and cool sets that brought her closer to all of her fans.

P1250950

Wheels Up Tour (Sam Hunt, Hunter Hayes, Lady Antebellum) – Various Venues – Summer 2015
A lineup so good we had to go not once, not twice, but four times, in three states.  It was totally worth it every single time!

Dan + Shay – Emporium – Patchogue, NY – October 2015
We can’t say enough good things about Dan+Shay.   They are incredible live – they bring so much energy to the show, night after night.  Their set mixes their album with classic rock, pop, and even a rendition of Boyz II Men’s “I’ll Make Love To You.”  And Shay’s voice + Dan’s harmonies = CHILLS.

P1340624

Nathan Sykes – Gramercy Theatre – New York, NY – July 2015
Nathan is extremely talented – he mentioned he was feeling under the weather at this show, but we never would have known because his voice is INSANE!

Nathan Sykes
DNCE – Knitting Factory – Brooklyn, NY – October 2015
If you’ve heard DNCE’s explosive debut EP, “SWAAY”, then you can imagine how much fun Joe, JinJoo, Cole, and Jack have every night on stage.  Their intimate album release show was a great intro to their new music.

P1360001
5SOS – Nikon Jones Beach Theatre – Wantagh, NY – September 2015
Calum, Ashton, Mikey, and Luke have translated their pop punk show to the big stage and this was easily one of our favorite shows this year, and it was at our favorite summer venue! They had cool graphics, a moving stage, and the catchiest riffs that got the ENTIRE crowd singing along.  10/10 – we would totally would have gone every night if we could have!!

Old Dominion – Bowery Electric – New York, NY – October 2015
After a summer of stadium shows, Old Dominion played an intimate pop up show at one of the smallest venues in NYC for their biggest fans. These guys released one of our favorite albums of 2015 and their show, stadium or tiny club, is insanely fun!  Every song is a JAM!!
