▣Bank of NH Pavilion | Gilford, NH ▣Tuesday, June 19th 2018
30 Seconds To Mars Monolith tour hit New Hampshire at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion on Tuesday, June 19th, with openers Walk The Moon. Currently touring in support of their new album, America, released in April of this year. The guys, once again, set out to conquer the world!
It was a perfect summer’s night in Gilford New Hampshire at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion. It was be my first time at this venue, and I was already blown away by it’s beauty. Clean and newly remodeled, and there isn’t a bad seat in the house. It is a perfect venue to see a summer show.
Walk The Moon made an entrance to the sound of cheers from their fans. They sand with the band song after song. I was unfamiliar with their music, but would categorized their sound as alternative pop-rock. I recognized one of their newer songs, Shut Up and Dance- a song that won them the 2016 Billboard for Top Rock Song. And although they were not a band I normally would go see, I still thought their energetic set was memorable. I applaud them for their solid performance.
Flags with the Thirty Seconds to Mars logos started to arise from the crowd. I definitely got the feeling that something was being planned upfront. When the lights went out, you could just feel the energy from the crowd’s excitement. The crowd took it up another notch when the band hit the stage. Jared immediately went to work and opened with Monolith, an appropriate way to start.
Balloons bounced around, flags waived in the air- Thirty Seconds To Mars entertained the crowd for over an hour. They put on one of the most fan-interactive shows I have ever witnessed. If you don’t believe me, just take a look at the photos! As confetti exploded into the sky, they closed with Closer to the Edge. Fans gathered around them on stage to sing along. It had been quite the night, a memorable one indeed.
