Bastille took the stage Sunday night. They played a series of fan favorites from “All This Bad Blood” and even graced Firefly attendees with some new songs. The crowd went crazy when the band performed their famous TLC cover of “No Scrubs.”
Dan Smith, the lead singer, commented on the weather being just like a British music festival: hot and rainy.
During “Of The Night,” Smith confided in the audience that his dancing was terrible and embarrassing and he would need our help on the next song. He asked everyone to “get low,” but “not in a sexy way,” during the verses, and then jump during the chorus. The result was awesome.
Even in the upper 90 degree weather, Smith slipped on a hoodie in the middle of the set and made his way almost through to the back of the crowded audience. Then Bastille ended with an obvious choice, Pompeii, and the audience didn’t stop jumping.
The energy and the vocals of the performance blew me away.
