If I was to be completely honest, it’s been quite awhile since I last heard from Hoobastank. I vaguely remember attending their concert in 2007. Fast forward 7 years later, I was excited that I was going to see a band that meant so much to me as a young lad. With a bag of gig essentials, I was ready for what was to be a smashing rock show.
Upon reaching the venue, I noticed the lines were surprisingly underwhelming for a concert of this magnitude. That did not mean that the crowd was not a rowdy bunch. Younger and older fans crowded to the front as the legends kicked off the set with their high energy hit "Just One" off their album "The Reason" - which has been their most successful one to date. The band continued to sweep their audience off their feet, hit after hit. Fans roared in anthemic unison as Hoobastank belted out their worldwide hit - THE REASON! I could feel my 17 year old self fist bumping to every verse. It was incredible. Hoobstank ended the night with Crawling in the Dark, which left fans at The Collesium in awe of the bands undeniable talent.
The show proved that Hoobastank will be around for many more years to come
