OneRepublic @ DU
May 27, 2010 2 Comments
OneRepublic performed a sort of “impromptu” concert in the middle of the University of Denver’s campus during DU’s annual May Days celebration. The band’s management approached the University of Denver Programming Board on Tuesday about coming to campus on Wednesday and performing a short set for FREE! Who wouldn’t want that?
The short concert was promoted on Facebook as a “surprise” that students should show up for. The band came, performed, took pictures, and left. The set was short (All The Right Moves, Apologize, & Secrets – their new single), but it was quite awesome! The band literally had some instruments put in the middle of the Driscoll Green, a circle of students formed, and then they walked up and started playing. There were no microphones or speakers, but I believe they did film the performance for some online site (which one I am not sure).
Best May Days ever!
I have videos of the first two songs they performed. I apologize for the low quality – my camera microphone isn’t necessarily the best.
I also got a picture with Ryan Tedder, the lead singer:
Someone else got video of “Secrets”. The quality is a bit lower than mine – but hey, you can see me in the video 🙂
