Colorado band, the Lumineers, held a 4,000-person singalong in Dallas on Sunday night. Prior to the show, a line formed around the entire venue full of eager fans that sprinted to the front of the stage as soon as the doors were opened. Show openers, Sleepwalker and Soak, kicked off the night before the lights dimmed, and a curtain shielded the stage from the audience as it was being prepared for the Lumineers. With dimmed lights and a quick drop of the curtain, the crowd cheered as the Lumineers took the stage. The Lumineers played three songs before lead singer, Wesley Schultz, instructed the crowd to film the next song if they wanted, but after that, please put away their cellphones. The Lumineers then launched into their hit song, “Ho Hey”, while the audience filmed and sang along. The Lumineers' live show is energetic and full-sounding, when compared to the traditional less is more approach they tend to employ on their albums. The Lumineers played 16 songs in total before coming back out and leaving Dallas with a three-song encore. Make sure you catch the Lumineers on their Cleopatra World Tour.
