One Republic new album is outstanding and in Las Vegas they had a interview at Bellagio and they mentioned for upcoming month they are going to Canada to play in the Grey Cup.
Quick search and music fans on MTV even have mentioned the Grey Cup performance as well Iheart radio that it will be their first major concert since their return and will be used to highlight their new hit songs w/ video.
which is quite amazing for the band and for the CFL Grey Cup!
Future looks good for both the band and the CFL Grey Cup halftime shows.
One Republic is a rock band and they are 1 of the best 5 acts in the world. They play real music LIVE not like the terrible fake acts like drake, bieber, britney spears junk. One Rep ls on the level of the foo fighters, cold play, u2,etc sure they are not the rolling stones or the beatles but thats like saying bo levi is the next flutie.
If you like mainstream radio type stuff like might be played on Edge 102 in TO then they are fine. I just personally don't listen to radio much. I do listen to the punk show on Faction and underground garage on serious or however it's spelled. Better then Biebs and all that crap for sure.
cmon man...top 5 acts? They are not one of the top 5 rock acts never mind acts period. Just looking at rock in no particular order here are but a few "bigger" that them right now...
Mumford and Sons
Twenty One Pilots
Five Finger Death Punch
Don't get me wrong, good band, but top 5...get real
aside from Foo Fighters, Coldplay, and maybe Imagine Dragons none of those acts are big right now. Not one.
Beck is great. but he is not in right now.
we are talking about biggest acts of today. If the Rolling Stones performed or when they release their album next month they still wont be the biggest act today. They are the best band of all time. But they are not a band of today.
Modest Mouse lol you joking? a bit late to the party with that one
