After supporting Panic! at the Disco on this summer’s Gospel Tour, Cincinnati indie rockers Walk the Moon set out on a tour of their own to support their upcoming release, Talking is Hard. Starting in Seattle, Shut Up and Tour has made its way across the US over the month of October. Atlanta was one of many sold-out stops along the way as the band made Terminal West their home once again. Although there were many new fans in attendance, likely captivated by the band’s energy last time they performed in Atlanta just two months ago, it would be hard for anyone in attendance to be oblivious to the fact that the band has had a following for quite some time. Adorned in face paint like the band members themselves, fans enthusiastically sang every word of hits such as “Tight Rope” and “I Can Lift a Car” from the band’s debut self-titled album, now a little over two years old. In addition to old favorites, Walk the Moon performed a handful of tracks from their upcoming album, including the massively popular single from which the tour borrowed its name, Shut Up and Dance.
It’s safe to say that fans left the venue excited that evening. Excited for just having seen one of the best, most energetic performances they‘ve seen; excited for the release of Talking is Hard on Dec. 2; and excited for the band to return to Atlanta.
Walk the Moon are on tour through the first week of November, and play a handful of dates at the beginning of December. Click here to see if they are coming to your area and if tickets are available.
