Hello, I saw Bastille live yesterday! It was honestly incredible. Definitely one of my favourite concerts ever even though I feel like I say this about every concert I’m going to. I can’t believe I saw two of my favourite bands this month, now only Fall Out Boy is missing… sigh.
I had such a great time with some of my best friends! Thankfully we got a spot in the fifth or so row and everyone managed to get home safely, yay!
Bastille is not only an amazing band but also such a lovely one. I don’t really know how to describe it but I feel like they are so incredibly grateful that we came and Dan said “thank you so much for coming” about 20 times. He also spoke a bit of German several times (I love it when artists do that!).
The pre-act was Rationale. I never really heard about them before but OH THEY WERE AMAZING, I need to check them out as soon as I’ve finished writing this. Here is their most played song on Spotify, Fast Lane.
I love the one-colour aesthetic and the lead singer looked amazing tbh.
Bastille played a large amount of songs so the concert was quite long. A full setlist ist here. I love long concerts! Even though I was a tiny bit worried I might have problems getting home (I was home at 1am so… it worked?). They played so many of my favourite songs from Bad Blood and Wild World, the only one I missed was Way Beyond, but I didn’t expect it anyway because it’s on the deluxe version of Wild World.
The concert was incredibly interactive in a way. Like, Dan was actually walking through the crowd during Flaws (he walked RIGHT past my friend!) and they played a few songs in the back and made us get our phones out / hands up / get down and jump, and so on. I really love it when bands do that.
Here are some photos of the night (get it? Of the Night? Okay I’ll leave):
See you soon ❤
