Snow Patrol - Fox Theater Pomona - 5/10/12
I haven't seen a crowd go crazier for an opening act than Ed Sheeran. The front row of female fans all had cameras and phones recording every move of the UK sensation. Utilizing a looping pedal, Sheeran was a one-man band working through some songs due to be released in June. The line of people to get his autograph after the show was in excess of two hundred fans. Most impressive.
Critic's Notebook: I have a soft spot for bands across the pond.
The Crowd: Lots of females.
Overheard In The Crowd: "Take off your pants!" directed to Gary Lightbody.
Random Notebook Dump: Ed Sheeran has two million twitter followers compared to Snow Patrol's one hundred thousand.
