Of Monsters and Men Bring ‘Fever Dream’ Tour to The Met in Philadelphia

Pop Break Live: Of Monsters and Men ‘Fever Dream Tour’ at The Met in Philadelphia

Of Monsters and Men, an indie band who took the music world by storm in 2011 with their stellar studio debut My Head is an Animal, played The Met in Philadelphia on Tuesday night September 10. The band is touring in support of their newest album Fever Dream, which was released on July 26th.

The Icelandic band, known for their magical harmonies, opened the show with “Alligator,” one of the best songs off their new release. So many of Of Monsters and Men’s songs have this great catchy booming chorus so it was no surprise that the audience was singing and clapping along by the end of song two,”Empire.” They set the tone for the evening early on and boy did this Philadelphia crowd deliver big during the night with their participation on many of the songs. The stage lighting was really impressive as well as it seemed perfectly in sync with their drummer’s beat. The band has such a unique sound so the incredible acoustics in the venue enhanced their performance even more.

Standout songs for the show included “King and Lionheart,” “Mountain Sound,” “Crystals,” and “Dirty Paws” but it was some of their newer songs that really shone like “Wild Roses” and “Under A Dome”. Of Monsters and Men ended their set with their huge hit Little Talks and Six Weeks. The band played a four song encore which ended in epic fashion when singer Nanna Bryndís Hilmarsdóttir went out into the crowd on the last song, “Yellow Light.” She then returned to the stage and showed us her drum skills.

This Philadelphia audience was treated to a truly exceptional show.
