The Light’s go dark, you hear the fans screaming in the crowd, waiting for this moment for 7 years now, all standing and shouting at the House of Blues Chicago. It’s a sold out show and it is packed. Then the light’s on the stage start to go on and off while Diary (the intro) is playing and then Ilan Rubin comes out and sits down at his drum kit. Everyone gets excited, they all have been waiting for this day. Then as Ilan is drumming, David Kennedy and Eddie Breckenridge come out with their guitar and bass guitar. Then finally, the man we all have been waiting for comes out, Tom Delong. He looks out into the crowd and just starts singing Surrender and the crowd immediately follow along. All you see is smiles from Tom, the band, and the crowd. Later on Tom and Iilan come out with an acoustic guitar and play Anomaly. Then it gets very emotional as Tom is left on stage by himself and his acoustic guitar. He looks out into the crowd and plays Aliens exist, I miss you, and there is as the crowd sang along with him.
The Night was a 10 out of 10. It was a sold out show and a night to remember. Angels and Airwaves did not disappoint at all. It took 7 years in making for this tour and it was worth it. If your date has not sold out I recommend buying tickets now because it just might!
