Live at the magnificent Denver Botanic Gardens a jaw-dropping performance by Fitz and the Tantrums echoed jubilant jams throughout the Denver area. The group is well known in the pop scene from some of their major hits including but not limited to “Hands Clap”, “Out of My League”, and “I Just Wanna Shine”. They have a major following that is well deserved. The group has an energy that is sure to bring light to even the darkest days, and let me be the first to tell you, that same energy is even more remarkable in person. 

This was my first outdoor venue concerts, and this was just the group to see in the magnificent outdoors of Colorful Colorado. Surrounded by the beauty of the vegetation of a summer in full effect, evoked even more joy into the lyrics of Fitz and the Tantrums. The crowd was an incredibly age diversified group which took me by surprise. They seem to have a sound that speaks to ages all alike. The group allowed for a small pit to be formed in front of the stage which is where I spent most of my time. There, fans watched in awe as the band performed to an audience that fully surrounded the stage in a full 360 degrees. 

Fitz and the Tantrum’s music naturally puts a groove into your step, so it was no wonder the entire venue was standing, dancing, some even moshing, the entire night. Not just fans, but the group themselves put on not only a lyrical show, but a physical one as well. Keeping every corner of the venue engaged. 

Going into this show I was already a casual fan of Fitz and the Tantrums, but after a delightfully captivating set, I not only have more songs to add to my personal playlist, but have found my anthems for the months to come. Be sure to check out Fitz’s new album Let Yourself Free if you are looking for the obligatory pick-me-up.
