Since OneRepublic swung by Bangkok in elephant pants between their 2013 Native Tour dates, fans have been longing for the day they would perform in the city.
Thanks to BEC-Tero Live Nation, last Thursday, September 21 the Colorado band of multihyphenates finally took on the Impact Arena and put on a two-hour debut show. It was packed with spellbinding hits like “Stop and Stare”, “Secrets”, “Apologize” and “Counting Stars”; huge pop anthems including “Kids”, “Good Life”, “Something I Need” and “Love Runs Out”; and stripped down covers of songs which frontman, the “Secret King of Pop”, Ryan Tedder himself penned, namely Beyoncé’s “Halo” and Ed Sheeran’s “Happier”.
Before all of that went down AsiaLive365 attended the show’s press conference where Tedder, Brent Kutzle (bass, cello, keyboard), Zach Filkins (guitar, viola), Drew Brown (guitar, synths) and Eddie Fisher (drums) shared their Bangkok itinerary and talked new music, exciting collaborations, and decade-long journey as a band.
