Neon Trees Makes ‘Everybody Talk’ About Its Performance At Movin’ On

Pop rock band Neon Trees got the Movin’ On music festival crowd jumping around at the IM Fields Friday night.

Although the weather was harsh, the band started its set with high energy with “Moving in the Dark”. The good rhythm and catchy vibes of the music lifted the crowd, especially with its next song, “Animal”.

“It’s so fucking cool you showed up,” said Tyler Glenn, the band’s lead singer. “If it were me, I wouldn’t have gone to see those bands, but you guys are much cooler than me.”

The band followed it up with songs like “Used To Like”, “Songs I Can’t Listen To”, and “1983”. Glenn then promptly started a “We Are” chant.

“Are we doing Borgs here?” Glenn asked. “Or was it something I just saw on Tik Tok?”

The band proceeded on its next song, “Nights”, and the crowd started jumping up and down in tune with the song.

“Lessons in Love (All Day, All Night)” followed, joined by a cover of the song “Don’t You Want Me” by The Human League. The band’s drummer, Elaine Bradley, joined Glenn in singing the cover, which led to cheers from the crowd.

“So this whole town is centered around you?” Glenn asked. “Like everything in the town is about you? You deserve it.”

The band then went ahead with its next song, “Sleeping With a Friend”. While the band prepared for the next song, Glenn read a member in the crowd’s phone.

“So, all I have to do for you guys to like me is to hate Michigan? he asked. “I didn’t know it was that easy.”

Neon Trees decided to close out by performing its biggest hit, “Everybody Talks”. As the song started to play, the whole crowd jumped around, grooving to the catchy lyrics.

In tune with the weather, Glenn said a farewell to the crowd by saying, “Stay healthy, stay warm. We will see you next time, Penn State!”
