Jon Foreman Concert Recap

March 4, 2015

written by Chris Misiano

On Saturday 2/28, we proudly hosted Jon Foreman for a sold-out concert in the LaHaye Event Space. On a cold Virginia night, this proud San Diego native sang, laughed, and shared with a really excited crowd. Jon is not a stranger to Liberty University, having played here with his band Switchfoot several times over the past few years. 

During this concert, he pulled material from various parts of his career. We heard some Switchfoot favorites such as ‘Dare You to Move’ and ‘Only Hope’. He also performed some of his older solo material such as ‘Your Love is Strong’ and ‘Southbound Train’. One of the main highlights of the night was hearing Jon play some new tunes that aren’t even released yet. These included the songs ‘Terminal’ and ‘The Patron Saint of Rock & Roll’. He explained that he has new material being released later this year. The crowd latched on, singing along, shouting suggestions, and having a great time. 

The instrumentation was very bare - just Jon on acoustic, and a cellist (the very talented Keith Tutti). This stripped down set sounded surprisingly full - full of textures and layers. Jon’s fantastic vocal range, along with Keith’s creativity on the cello gave the whole evening a really unique sound. They came out for an encore, and the crowd was clearly happy. Jon told everyone that he was having a great time, even veering from his intended set list. “It feels like off-roading in a train” he told the crowd. 

We still have some more great concerts this semester. Be sure to get your tickets soon for Propaganda on April 2 and Colony House on April 20. As always, keep up to date with concert info by following us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
