Kenya’s J.S. Ondara opened the night, as the singer stood at the edge of the stage surrounded by a trio of violin, viola and cello.
With a broad voice that powered over the early crowd’s chatter, Ondara made many new fans with his performance.
Los Angeles indie outfit Mt. Joy were up next, providing a boost in the energy as they rolled through their set.
Ending with their biggest hit, ‘Silver Lining,’ Mt. Joy dawned a set full of colour and vibrancy.
The Lumineers made their way onto stage the Canadian Tire Centre on Saturday night to a packed arena.
Wesley Schultz led the crowd through each song on the lead vocals and guitar, serenading fans with hits such as ‘Ho Hey’, ‘Gloria’, and ‘Stubborn Love.’
Drummer and one of two founding members of the band, Jeremiah Fraites was all over the stage, with multiple drumkits, kick drums, tambourines, and even an appearance on the guitar at one point.
Off the back of their 2019 release III, The Lumineers folk-Americana sound from the Midwest remains fully intact, and proceeds to sound its best live.
While closing off one of their hits ‘Cleopatra,’ the crowd’s roar was so loud that the band had to just smile and wait it out to finish the song.
