Having played to diverse crowds in the past, from small venues to Vans Warped Tour and larger venues in support of Blink 182, New Found Glory knows how to please any audience. Their performance, wedged between those of Sugarcult and Green Day, only proved to affirm their remarkable stage presence and ability to retain their audience’s attention.
New Found Glory mixed their set with songs from their new album, “Catalyst,” including tunes like “Truth of my Youth,” “Failure’s not Flattering,” “I Don’t Wanna Know” and “All Downhill From Here,” with songs from their more senior albums, like “Hit or Miss,” from the album, “Nothing can stay Gold,” and the hit “My Friends Over You,” from “Sticks and Stones.”
Whether you like their music or not, you have to respect New Found Glory’s dedication to their live performance – they interact with one another, incorporate the audience through questions and the recital of song lyrics and never fail to jump about the stage with their guitars, energizing not only themselves, but the crowd as well.
New Found Glory increased the momentum of the total show, which was started by Sugarcult and finally exploded during Green Day’s set.
