Towering flat screens flanked the sides of the stage, illuminating the arena as it cycled through a variety of clips and static, until ultimately landing on “The Hedleys”. Accompanied by a very 80’s theme song, the crowd is introduced to the band in their roles of their of “Full House” sitcom, which include a number of exaggerated sitcom scenarios including Jacob Hoggard munching down on an enormous overflowing bowl of fruit loops. At the end of the video sitcom intro Hedley launched onto the stage with “Hello”.

Hoggard is high energy. Consistently on the move, using the full span of the stage, his energy is contagious as he works the crowd, climbing atop speakers, only to jump and spin off them. His energy is contagious as the crowd is on their feet, clapping, and dancing in their seats.  Guitarist Dave Rosin and bassist Tommy Mac are equally energetic as they would come forward an join Hoggard, or switch sides of the stage.

Hedley was a fun night with antics that were fully appreciated by the fans in attendance, well into the show which included Hoggard emerging from the crowd leading the encore off with “Trip”.  A feel good, positive energy, for all their fans.
