One Republic: MTV Music Evolution concert

MTV Music Evolution
One Republic came out with guns a blazing, I’ve photographed them before so I knew what to expect. The lead vocalist Ryan Tedder does a bang up job during his live showss, one of those artist who may actually sound better live, than on a recording.

You could feel the give an take from the crowd to the performer, as he almost immediately connected with them. Ryan is similar to Bebe Rexha, in that he also writes and produces music for other artists. Recently winning a Grammy for a couple of songs he contributed to Taylor Swift’s album, 1986.

He also spoke of their last concert here at Araneta Coliseum , saying it was “one of our favourite shows we’ve ever done in our entire career” and it wasn’t just lip service, you could tell he meant it.  “Everyone here is just so nice, it’s almost hard to freakin’ believe.”
