The popular American rock band had fans singing along to hits “Stop and Stare” and “Apologize” as well as cover songs such as Buffalo Springsteen’s “Stop, Hey, What’s That Sound” and their newest single “Feel Again.”

Lead singer Ryan Tedder was light-hearted throughout the performance, getting up close and personal with the front row, sharing memories of past trips to Vegas with the crowd and even singing and dancing to a fun rendition of Justin Timberlake’s “Bringing Sexy Back.”

Ensuring fans didn’t miss a second of the concert, the show streamed live on the larger-than-life plasma video wall on the D’s exterior, in addition to FSE’s massive Viva Vision LED canopy.

Before concluding with hit song “Good Life,” Tedder let the crowd know that guitarist Drew Brown is often called “D” so when the band got an offer to play at the D, it was an automatic yes. After exiting the stage, the crowd repeatedly chanted, “Encore!” prompting the band to reappear to perform “Waking Up,” which is the title track off their new album set to release next month.
