A Perfect Match: Young the Giant at World’s Largest Block Party (June 27, 2015)

When Young the Giant returns to the stage for an encore, the audience is very excited to hear more. Sameer Gadhia, the lead singer, explains that they always play the following song when they are in Chicago. “And for those born in 1994, this is a cover.” Then, he sings Ignition (Remix) as the crowd dances enthusiastically as a tribute to R. Kelley, who is from “Chi-city”. Then, they slow things down and play “Islands”. Finally, to close out the night, they play their biggest hit, “My Body”. It’s a rocking number that gets everyone jumping up and down as they shout “My Body tells me no, but I won’t quit, cause I want more!” For the Old St Pat’s World’s Largest Block Party, which was moved to a new location to get more space, it was a fantastic finish!
