We were meant to live for so much more!
Switchfoot came to town with Relient K on this leg of The Looking for America Tour. Switchfoot has been on tour now for over 80 dates, usually showing wear and tear on a band’s performance while working so hard. With the high intensity Switchfoot showed in New Haven, they show no signs of slowing down.
Switchfoot, rocking the front steps of Yale University to a packed house, had the crowd in love with all their hits from the last 15+ years. Opening their show with an amazing light display, a personalized “New Haven” backdrop and offering up a free download to fans, the band came out to “Holy Water” and had their die-hards screaming and singing along from the start. Next was “Meant to Live”, the hit song that topped charts back in 2003 and sold over 2.6 million records for the album The Beautiful Letdown. Rocking “When We Come Around” from Fading West had the crowd jumping as front man Jon Foreman hopped off stage and into the crowd to let them help him sing. An overall intense show continued for 16 songs and plenty of smiles throughout. Concluding the night, was none other than the epic hits of “Live It Well” and “Dare You To Move”.
Switchfoot and Relient K partnered with cure.org on this tour and brought them along to set up a booth at all their shows. The cure.org movement is an amazing organization that brings hope and wellness to children in need of surgeries, medical attention, in countries that will not or cannot afford to make it happen. With cure.org being on tour with Switchfoot, the funds raised during this leg of the tour were able to provide over 100 surgeries to children in need. Check out their website for more information.
Just wrapping up The Looking for America Tour with Relient K, in support of their newest release Where the Light Shines Through, the band is looking to continue to melt faces and has no signs of stopping anytime soon.
