I’m still on a fun. high from the concert last Friday. Oh man, to say it was amazing is an understatement. It was SOOO good.
There’s just something about being in a theater full of people who sing along with the band. It makes shows about a thousand times better. They played songs from both the Aim & Ignite and Some Nights album (both good - buy them!).
But my favorite song from the night was when they did this song - “The Gambler.” Nate Reuss, the lead singer, had mentioned that his sister and parents were in the audience and that they had breakfast together for the first time in 15 years. Then he dedicated this song to them and sang it.
I’ve listened to this song so many times in the past but never paid attention to the words. But when you really take it in, it’s like you’re hearing it for the first time. It’s just so much more real.
I think this may be one of my new favorite songs.
