Last night’s show featuring The National Parks, Westward The Tide, and Brumby was the best selling show in Utah all last week, selling out in only 4 days.  Parking in downtown Provo at 7 PM was an absolute nightmare. Cars lined University Avenue, and almost every parking spot from the Provo City Center Temple to the Covey Center was taken. It was weird to see so many parked cars, yet nobody on center street. It was like a ghost town until you saw the enormous line outside of Velour Live Music Gallery. I personally have not been to a show this packed since Imagine Dragons played here in April of 2011.
Obviously, Velour could not ignore the huge draw these three bands have had. Because of this, they’ve added an additional show for this Monday night.
“Last night was absolutely amazing,” says Brady Parks of The National Parks. “We’ve been on the road for a little while now and being able to come back home during the tour and play for such an incredible home crowd was a surreal feeling. There was something special in the air last night. When I was first starting to play in Provo I would go to shows like that and just dream of what it would be like to stand on Velour’s stage and play. It really has been a dream come true.”
The National Parks, Westward The Tide, and Brumby will take the stage again on January 11, 2016. Doors will open at 8PM. Tickets are $10 at the door (cash only). If you are a fan of any of these bands and didn’t get a chance to see them perform last night, now’s your chance. You may not be able to see these three bands share the same stage again. It’s looking like they’re moving on to increasingly bigger venues.
