On Wednesday night February 20th I was one of 20,000 Chicago EDM enthusiasts that was able to experience what could be the last time Chicago gets to see Steve Angello, Axwell and Sebastian Ingrosso, collectively the Swedish House Mafia together at a show. As their only stop in Chicago for their One Last Tour I made it a point not to miss this show, even though I bought my tickets fairly late.This being my first ever show at the United Center made it even more special.
I honestly didn’t know what to expect, I attend EDM shows frequently but usually at smaller venues, I’ve been to several festivals, but this was a totally different atmosphere There’s something about a sporting arena with its acoustics that you just have to appreciate. Especially when 20,000 fans pour their hearts and souls into lyrics they all know and love. We sang so loud that SHM turned down the volume on their speakers to hear us sing along, especially to Don’t You Worry Child and Save The World. In those moments when the high production values of the stage, the sound system and lights come together with the music and the voices of its adoring fans to create a euphoric moment that cannot be described only experienced.
We Came We Raved We Loved, Till next time.
