Kaskade Closes Out His Atmosphere Tour In LA
This past weekend Kaskade closed out his four city Atmosphere Tour in Los Angeles. The “Big Rooms, Small Tour” made stops in Miami, New York, and Chicago, before ending with three shows at the Shrine Auditorium in LA. The Atmosphere tour was in support of the recent release of his eighth studio album Atmosphere. Los Angeles was lucky enough to have three days to choose from in order to see Grammy nominated Kaskade, however the Saturday show sold out in a mere 30 seconds.
I was lucky enough to attend the sold out Saturday show for what would be his finale. The Shrine Auditorium was packed early on with hardcore Kaskade fans ready to dance. Late Night Alumni and Amtrac had opening sets to set the mood for the incredible night ahead. If you didn’t secure your spot in the center of the crowd, I would have to say good luck pushing your way through. Kaskade appeared on the main stage around 11:45pm and opened with his hit single “Atmosphere.” Immediately fans were singing along with girls on friends shoulders and handmade signs in the air.
Kaskade brought out Lights to sings a live version of their song “No One Knows Who We Are” which was pretty incredible to say the least. Throughout the set an empty stage sat behind the packed crowd. Lucky for us we knew he was going to switch to the empty stage mid set to give everyone in the back a chance to be up front. When he switched stages we were so close that you could see Kaskade in the zone, laughing and smiling at his fans. You could totally tell he was happy and having a great time. Kaskade played everything from his new album to his classic songs like ”Raining,” “4am,” and “Angel On My Shoulder.” To close out his set Kaskade dropped his mash up of “Turn It Down” with Martin Garrix’s massive hit “Animals.” The crowd went absolutely insane and just like that, the night was over. This show was definitely one for the books and I’m glad I got to experience it. For more on Kaskade hit the following links.
