Gallery: X Ambassadors at Terminal 5, NYC 05.13.16

Ithaca’s alt-rockers X Ambassadors brought the VHS 2.0 Tour to New York City’s Terminal 5 for a sold-out night of heart-pumping adrenaline.

Having been introduced to them on Muse‘s Drones tour earlier this year, I already knew that X Ambassadors is a band whose showmanship begs to be enjoyed live. I was far from disappointed. With energy pumped to 11 from the get-go, X Ambassadors plowed through a high-adrenaline set that mainly showcased the band’s latest release, VHS. Rapper A$AP Ferg surprised the audience when took the stage to join frontman Sam Harris during “Low Life.” X Ambassadors’ larger-than-life anthem “Renegades” capped off the set with an explosive burst of fog, confetti and streamers over the crowd. Though, despite the big-note ending, the band took the stage once again for an emotional cover of Prince‘s “Purple Rain” and “Unconsolable.”
