Every stop on their new tour has been eagerly anticipated by fans of Incubus. Vocalist Brandon Boyd, lead guitarist Mike Einzinger, bassist Ben Kenney, drummer Jose Pasilas and DJ Killmore have been wowing fans for years, and it looks like they have still got it. The genre of their music has been described in various different ways, including ‘nu alternative’, ‘alternative rock’, ‘rap metal’ and ‘electro’. Whatever it can be classified as, they have truly succeeded in the test of time as their fans remain as loyal as ever.
One of their destinations while touring was the Susquehanna Bank Centre. Fans waited patiently for the tickets to go on sale, listening to their music or playing Partypoker. When the tickets were released, there was a huge flurry of activity as people hurried to claim their place at the show. They were supported by Young and Giant, who played their two big hits ‘My Body’ and ‘Cough Syrup’, as well as other songs that were just as good. Their sound combines driving riffs with slower acoustic sounds and adds in singer Sameer Gadhia to give them an alternative rock sound.
Then, Incubus began their energetic performance with ‘Megalomaniac. They played old hits and new songs that all came together really well and their passion for the music was plain to see. These songs included classics like ‘Drive’ and ‘Wish You Were Here’, as well as some earlier songs such as ‘A Certain Shade of Green’ and ‘Consequence’. They played songs from new album ‘If Not Now, When?’, which included ‘Adolescents’, ‘Promises, Promises’, ‘In The Company Of Wolves’ and ‘Defiance’.
Incubus played for two fantastic hours before leaving the stage and being called back for an encore. They then launched into ‘Pardon Me’, something that many of the audience members had been waiting for. They also played ‘Are You In?’ before finishing with ‘Tomorrow’s Food’.
