Rainy day blues weren’t keeping OneRepublic fans down last night. The five-piece rock band, currently based in LA, performed an exclusive concert at The Fillmore in Philadelphia for American Airlines AAdvantage Mastercard members. The electrifying 12-song set featured hits like “Counting Stars” and “Apologize” as well as new favorites like “A.I.” and “Let’s Hurt Tonight” from their latest album, “Oh My My.”
We got to chat with lead vocalist Ryan Tedder backstage about the historic charm of Old City, Zahav’s hummus and how OneRepublic is changing up how they release music.
How’s it feel to be in Philly?
Ain’t that the truth.
Yeah it’s a little rainy but I have a friend here from college so we always have a good time when we come here.
Have any favorite spots?
I like Old City and Society Hill. Super beautiful area — historic, cobblestone streets, great restaurants. We went to Zahav last night and that was ridiculous.
