The tandem proved to be strong tour package
Last night, NEEDTOBREATHE’s Into The Mystery Tour rolled through The Met in Philadelphia with special guest Switchfoot. The tour’s stellar production, complete with massive LED screens and bubbles (yes, bubbles), was a joy for the capacity crowd. With tons of tours hitting the road over the last few months, this tandem has proved to be a great package.
After a wonderful opening performance by The New Respects, Switchfoot hit the stage. The kicked things off with “Where I Belong.” They launched into their Top 10 hit anthem “Meant To Live” and the crowd erupted. Then, the group was joined by The New Respects guitarist Zandy Fitzgerald for “Float.”
The GRAMMY Award winners closed out their 8-song set with their smash hit single “Dare You to Move.”
NEEDTOBREATHE took the stage amidst massive LED screens and wild strobe lighting. The opened their set with “Alive” and never looked back. They proceeded to treat fans to a hefty 21-song set that included plenty of hits. They also debuted a solid chunk of their latest LP Into The Mystery, which dropped back in July.
Highlights included “Drive All Night,” “Into The Mystery,” “Banks,” “Brother,” “Sunshine,” and many more.
They took advantage of being on the road with Switchfoot and invited frontman Jon Foreman on stage to perform “Carry Me,” a track from NEEDTOBREATHE’s new album on which Foreman is featured.
Later in the set, members of Switchfoot and The New Respects joined NEEDTOBREATHE for a jam of “When The Levee Breaks,” the Kansas Joe McCoy/Memphis Minnie classic that was made famous again by Led Zeppelin in the 70s.
They closed out the show with another piece from their latest record – “West Texas Wind.”
The Into The Myster Tour rolls on through October 30, wrapping up at the Ameris Bank Amphitheatre in Atlanta.
