Off the trails of his latest album The Midsummer Station, Owl City was in open throttle at The Tanger Outlets in Deer Park, NY on August 31st. Adam Young was in motion with the full band to celebrate the end of summer with a free concert hosted by Long Island’s own radio station, 106.1 BLI. Adam Young and company were in high energetic spirit for the whole hour and a half set. The band, including Young, was nothing but all smiles as he sang and interacted with the crowd.
Some lucky fans were given a chance at a closer look at the performance with options to win tickets to a small VIP area located right against the stage. Here, fans danced and sang during the performance with the same glee a child would show on Christmas. The whole time, the crowd was humming and singing with the same burst of energy the five performers shared on stage.
The band seamlessly flowed through a set of songs ranging from his earlier releases such as “Hello Seattle” from his basement recorded EP Of June to his latest hits. The crowd was cheering throughout, but you could feel a burst of energy when the band played the top hits “Firefly,” “Good Time,” and the closer “Shooting Star.”
Fans of his music were also treated this summer to a release of his acoustic EP, The Midsummer Acoustic (now available on iTunes). However, if you are a thirsting for more Owl City, Adam Young has posted on his blog: “…hopefully it [The Midsummer Acoustic EP] will hold you over until… the new stuff I’m working on out fall-ish which sounds like snowflakes on fire or the floating lantern scene in Tangled.” Considering “I See The Light” won an award for Best Song Written for Visual Media at the 54th Grammy Awards, I think Adam Young will dazzle his fans without a problem.
