The Weekend (Photo by Andy Jillson)

The Weekend put on an out-of-this-world performance at FedEx Field in Landover, MD on 7/30/22. This was a sold-out show and my biggest show to date. This was also one of the most “high-tech” musical productions I’ve seen. I was there on the sidelines (w/ 10 other photographers) doing my best to capture some of the magic, but it was tough. So much chaotic excitement. Only had two songs to take pics and an extremely small space to stand. I had a blast, though!

The “After Hours Til Dawn Tour” is The Weekend’s first-ever stadium tour. Fans had been anxiously awaiting this show. After several delays due to COVID, concert-goers had their redemption. DC. MD, and VA residents were all in attendance. Anyway, in this photo flashback we’re viewing pics of The Weekend.

Animals As Leaders performed for a rabid sold out crowd at Soundstage in Baltimore’s inner harbor on 4/13/2022. This was a highly-anticipated show.

I was fortunate to be at this show, and too be the only photographer in the photo pit. What a treat!
