On Saturday night, Andy Grammer and Fitz and the Tantrums brought a night full of infectious energy to The Palace Theater in St. Paul, Minnesota.
Opening the night was the talented Maggie Rose. Her vocals are phenomenal, and she did a great job setting the tone for the night with her soulful tunes and fun stage presence.
It was impossible to tell which co-headliner the crowd was most excited to see. From the moment Andy Grammer came out on stage, joy radiated off him as he performed, "Damn It Feels Good to Be Me." There was dancing, high energy, and overall fun and happy vibes throughout his entire set. Andy has a way of making everybody in the room feel inspired, and it was no different on Saturday night in St. Paul.
Highlights of his set include the performance of "Honey I'm Good" with a little "September" mashup, "Fresh Eyes," "Good To Be Alive (Hallelujah)," and "Keep Your Head Up." Towards the end of the set Michael Fitzpatrick even came out on stage, and the two performed "The Wrong Party" together, which was a definite crowd-pleaser. The track is Andy's upcoming single featuring Fitz & The Tantrums, which will be released, on August 26th. Andy closed out his energetic set with his well-loved track, "Don't Give Up On Me."
Shortly after, indie pop and neo-soul band Fitz and the Tantrums took the stage. It didn't seem possible to top Andy Grammer's energy on stage, but they quickly managed with "OCD" and "Complicated."
Highlights of the set include the performance of "Out of My League," "Sway," and "I Just Wanna Shine." Of course, "HandClap" was a crowd favorite that had everyone on their feet if they somehow weren't already.
Overall, Fitz and the Tantrums gave St. Paul an exciting and irresistibly danceable set. Between the fun tunes, stage lighting, stage presence, and infectious energy, it's hard not to have an enjoyable time. Fitz and the Tantrums closed the night full of incredible music with "The Walker." It was the perfect ending to a fun and energetic night.
