When my best friend randomly texted me if I wanted to see Kygo at the Hollywood Bowl, it was an impulse decision on both of our parts to go. With not knowing exactly what to expect, I was prepared for a night of tropical vibes which I got and definitely a lot more.
My new favorite thing about going to large concert venues is when the artist gives the audience the LED wristbands that light up. Along with being a nice souvenir, there’s something special seeing 17,000 or so strangers together for one individual, dancing along and watching the little wristbands light up to the music. With that, shout out to Kygo for selling out both nights of the Hollywood Bowl show with only one album out. I was genuinely impressed.
Before the show, I briefly talked to a friend who has seen Kygo live before and one thing I knew to be excited for at his show was to see what special guests he would bring out on stage. For my show, Kygo brought out lots of artists that are featured on his album, Cloud Nine but he also brought out some more people. These people included: Seal who sang, “Sensual Feeling”, Leona Lewis, G-Eazy, and James Hersey who is the singer on “Coming Over”, Kygo and Dillon Francis’s song they collaborated together with. Kygo definitely new how to put on a show and I would recommend seeing him if you have the chance!
