A perfect evening for an open-air stadium concert! Flew to Seattle from Columbus OH to see One Republic after seeing them open for U2 a couple years ago. Incredibly talented band but Tedder’s voice was strained and a bit off. He was a little too amped. Ran through their set at a frenetic pace although kicked into an awesome cover of Buffalo Springfield’s “For What It’s Worth”. Makes me think seeing One Republic would be preferable if they were the headliner which would afford more time to display their musical chops.
The band's performance was 5 stars. The venue was a let down. I paid for 3 VIP tickets and could'nt even see the stage. The Rock Zone & security blocked out most of it. We had to watch the live screen almost the whole event. Outdoor events in SE Asia do not work. It was way too hot and humid. The seats were squashed together with barely room to move. The audience behind the Rock Zone were forced to stay seated which ruined the atmosphere created by the band. I love OneRepublic. I have seen them twice before in the USA. This was one of the worst venues, sorry to say.
It was beyond amazing to finally see the band that has been my favorite for so many years perform in person. I wish I could hear them perform live every night! Their lyrics, mixture of instruments, and Ryan's voice never fail to make my life better. I'll go back to listening to their songs on repeat everyday until the next time I get to this.
Absolutely wonderful! First concert I went to where I knew all of the songs that they sang! Ryan Tedder's voice was wonderful and so was his sense of humor! This was probably one of the best concerts that I've ever been to!
AMAZINGOneRepublic came on at the end and sung at least 5 songs old ones, new ones and a cover of Sam Smith's Stay With Me. The vocal range of this group was outstanding live. This was the first time I had seen them live and was extremely impressed I would 100% go to see them again. The variety of the instruments used in each of the bands songs were absolutely outstanding, you wouldn't think that drums, cello, piano, guitar and bass could all be used to make a brilliant pop song. If you have never seen OneRepublic live before and are contemplating whether or not to go, I highly recommend you to go as they are fantastic and have wonderful stage presence (One member even ran into the crowd!).
