Out of every single concert/festival/musical performance I have ever attended, I have never been more pumped for Swedish House Mafia’s ‘One Last Tour.’ I have wanted to see the Swedish supergroup for the past two years and this past Wednesday, February 20th, I was able to see all three of them together in front of my very own eyes.
I know this may sound a little bit overdramatic, but I am very serious. My friends and I eagerly awaited for the day where they would announce their tour schedule, camped out on our computers for days, and landed tickets to this sold out last performance. Words cannot necessarily describe how Swedish House Mafia’s performance was phenomenally fabulous and my favorite concert I have ever attended. From the opening moments of ‘Greyhound,’ to the closure of ‘Save the World,’ and ‘Don’t You Worry Child,’ this experience captured my love for the supergroup and my obsession with dance/electronic/house music.
To be honest, I was nervous to see them live. I had listened to sets and had dreamed of their performance. I hate being disappointed, but Swedish House Mafia’s concert not only met my expectations, it far exceeded them. The pyrotechnics, lights, sounds, people, and atmosphere was pure perfection and I cannot get the sound or the unforgettable memories from their two hours on stage out of my head.
My love for music, of all kinds, over the last five years has really come to define who I am and shape me as an individual. I have seen some of the best bands, djs and musical artists perform around the world and I question as to whether or not any single person or concert can ever top the euphoria experienced during Swedish House Mafia.
I have a little over two months left in Bloomington, and I can honestly say that this February 20th date may have been my best collegiate experience in America (let’s not forget my European extravaganza of just pure awesomeness). But regardless of what is yet to come, or which artist is next to blow my mind, this day will always be remembered as the day I saw the ‘one last tour’ that brought such enthusiasm, joy, and music to me and my friends.
Swedish House Mafia, I love you.
