SWEDISH HOUSE MAFIA – Concert Review (Syndney, 02/02/13)
> I’d suggest earplugs, as 5 hours of crazy dancing, insane moshing and pounding beats would make the strongest of men quiver!
I have never seen something this crazy! This HAD to be one of the biggest raves Australia has ever seen!
People were jumping the barrier and storming into the mosh pit, with security chasing after them in quick succession. If the patrons weren’t doing that, then they were proceeding to dance non-stop for hours on end.
The music just never stopped! The Aston Shuffle performed their set for one hour, and was then followed by Goodwill. The Aston Shuffle showcased great remixes of some popular Indie bands, such as Two Door Cinema Club. Goodwill also appeared to do the same sort of set, but did have some odd sayings pop up the big screen, such as “Did you lock your kids in the car today?”, ”Babies kill toys”, and my personal favourite, “Panty Throwing Time!”
Finally, it was time to see one of the last shows performed by Swedish House Mafia. The opening song Greyhound blasted through the speakers around the stadium, and of course they proceeded to do a few remixes (they are DJ’s after all!). Remixes included artists like Coldplay, Usher and Temper Trap. By the time it was coming to an end, they finished off with three of their most popular singles, Don’t You Worry Child, Miami to Ibiza, and Save The World. This certainly ended the show with a bang!
It was definitely worth the trip down to see these guys! Next time I would probably take earplugs though, as five hours of non-stop pounding house music would bring on an ear-spitting headache to anyone!
