The last time we saw One Republic in Santa Barbara, it was as the talented opener for Maroon 5. On this night, the band returned, triumphant and thrilled the capacity audience at the Bowl. The co-headlining tour, with Sara Bareilles, brought two of the most talented songwriters in the business together. Ryan Tedder– the frontman for One Republic- is a prolific songwriter, having penned hits for Adelle, Kelly Clarkson and Beyonce.
One Republic brought their full array of hits with them, on this night. The show started with a large curtain, projecting silhouettes of the band, backlit by amber hued lights. The excitement in the crowd rose. By the time the curtain had dropped, the band had launched into their array of hits. The energy on stage was intense. One Republic played anthems like, Apologize, Stop and Stare, All The Right Moves and Secrets.
