I haven’t said anything yet about the Switchfoot concert on Tuesday night mostly because we had a death in the church on Tuesday evening as well and my week has been very busy. The concert, though, was amazing. If you love guitar driven rock & roll, particularly the kind that has a strong message, then this concert was for you! I have met Switchfoot once, about a year and a half ago, but had never seen them in concert. I’m telling you, these guys put everything they had in that concert. It was unbelievable.
Beyond that, while I was watching them play, it occurred to me that in all of our efforts to “reach teenagers” (many of which are good efforts, I believe) it’s rare for us to have an audience, or connect and communicate with an audience of teenagers as well as Switchfoot did on Tuesday night. Their ability to preach a message that the audience needed to hear was second to none. I’ve posted a few pics below that another couple in our church who came with us took. I also posted a video that someone else took from the concert that night (be warned, however, that the video and the audio don’t exactly sink up).
