The Used 4/4/14

     

     It was big news when The Used announced a co-headlining tour with Taking Back Sunday, and when they came to The Eagles Ballroom last Friday they certainly didn’t disappoint! Their very diverse fan base eagerly awaited their set, and they came out singing “Cry” off their most recent album Imaginary Enemy.  Right away you could tell this particular show was going to be special, because they helped a guy propose to his girlfriend, and of course she said yes! They continued their set playing other songs including “I Caught Fire,” “All That I’ve Got,” “The Taste of Ink,” and “On My Own,” ending their set with their encore song “A Box Full of Sharp Object” off their debut self titled album. 

During the performance, you could sense frontman Bert McCracken’s connection with the audience, which was really great especially with the large capacity venue.  The Used is a band that puts on a fantastic live performance, and if you haven’t seen them yet I highly suggest you do.
