From the moment R5 took the stage, the anticipation from the fans led to a burst of energy that quickly filled the room. From the first step on the stage to the last, they delivered 150% to the crowd. They are all amazing performers and had us in awe.

R5 treated the crowd to a setlist filled with fan favorites, old tracks as well as songs from their latest release, New Addictions EP. R5 took the reigns on the creation of this EP as they took control, wrote and produced the EP fully. The EP highlights the musicianship and the creativity that the band holds. There is no doubt that this EP is a pinnacle in their career and is a musical gem.
A couple of our highlights from the night; First, to see them perform Need You Tonight (INXS cover) was spectacular. We love the cover, as it is featured on our next Top 25 Cover/Remakes. Second, was to witness the parents of the young fans enjoying the music as much as their kids. It just proves that regardless of your age, gender, music preference, etc You can’t help but enjoy GOOD MUSIC! Lastly, for the encore R5 brought up all the bands from the night and treated the crowd to a full on party!
