If you have been following The Honey POP for a while, you know how much we love YUNGBLUD and his music. Everything from his energetic personality to him being unapologetically himself, we are fangirls through and through.
Yesterday, we got to see YUNGBLUD and his crew perform in Boston, and it was something special. Fans gathered from all throughout the east coast, tears were shed, and we opened the pit for the most well-deserved mosh-pit moments. Not only did we see YUNGBLUD, but we also got to experience his incredible openers, Games We Play, and The Regrettes.
Games We Play
The show started off strong with Games We Play—a pop-punk band we wished we had around sooner. Games We Play played a shorter set but that didn’t stop them from winning the crowd over. Lead Emmyn Calleiro has a Fall Out Boy meets Weezer vibe that doesn’t go unnoticed. From their energy all the way to their gratitude, Games We Play was a crowd favorite.
A thing to note, Games We Play has a new single that was released just days ago, ‘All My Friends (Ooo La La)’. After making their move to LA from Miami, Emmyn unpacked how the first year of being Los Angeles-bound had made him feel.
Being no strangers to the live music scene, The Regrettes are the second band for the current YUNGBLUD tour. The dreary, rainy Boston day had calmed down and the room started to fill out. Calling out the crowd, Lydia Night, their lead vocalist, had asked for a mosh pit which was starting to form as their third song rolled around. Although it was a short set, they were well-received. Audience members kept shouting, “We love you, Lydia Knight!”.
‘Barely On My Mind’ and ‘Dancing On My Own’ played alongside a few others this time around. Ending their set with a guitar-bass duel, The Regrettes were a perfect addition to this tour.
As 9:30 pm rolled around, the stage had been filled with a theme of vandalized trash cans and red lights that accompanied YUNGBLUD’s all-black outfit. Now, YUNGBLUD is notorious for an all-high-energy set making sure he acknowledges all sides of the venue. YUNGBLUD had mentioned his recent injury as he pointed to the bright blue and pink athletic tape. He was determined to play Boston–mentioning how he was disregarding the medical advice he was given. Jumping and spinning around, he really gave it his all.
This whole set, YUNGBLUD had the crowd in the palm of his hands. With every “scream” or “open the pit” command, his fans immediately listened. Bringing fans up to help pick songs, he made sure no one was left out of the experience. He repeated throughout the show that he was grateful for this life that was given to him.
YUNGBLUD acknowledged the five-year anniversary of his album, ’21st Century Liability’ which many fans wore in support of its message. A fan chose ‘Die For The Hype’ over ‘Doctor Doctor’ which helped wrap up the main set.
If there is one thing to sum the night off it would be just how special YUNGBLUD’s connection is with his fans. After the show ended, YUNGBLUD had a smile that was ear to ear. If you are planning on attending this amazing tour, bring some tissues and your best mosh-pit selves as you never know what you’re going to get. We are over the moon (and missing it already) and are patiently awaiting the next show.
