Bastille :: Moda Center :: 11.13.14

When Bastille was in town for December To Remember last year, I made the prediction that the next time we saw them would be in an arena-sized venue. Now, I don't like to brag, but we saw that prediction come to fruition on Thursday night, when Bastille returned to Portland for their show at Moda Center.






































Bastille has gradually become known more and more as a pop band, rather than an alternative one - and nowhere is that more apparent than in their choice of openers. Where last year's performances featured bands like Little Daylight and NONONO, Thursday's show was kicked off by pop/soul singer Ella Eyre. While we may not be hearing her on the Bottom 40 anytime soon, no one at Moda Center seemed to care, cheering along to the 20 year-old singer's high-kicking, high-energy performance.

When Dan Smith and the gang came on stage shortly thereafter, I paused to reflect on how far they've come since we first saw them, last September. The band has essentially been touring on the same material for over a year - although there are a couple of new songs, and they've swapped out the City High cover for TLC's "Scrubs," most of the setlist (and all of Dan's jokes) are the same. What's changed, though, is the environment: a year ago, they played in front of a handmade BASTILLE banner; now their backdrop is a stadium and more A/V equipment than a typical Best Buy. The change suits them, though - it feels like they were always meant to play this kind of venue. It feels like they're home.
