The Used were in town at the House of Blues for two nights of pure nostalgia on Friday, May 6 and Saturday, May 7.
The first night, Friday, saw a line that stretched the length of Lansdowne Street behind Fenway Park where fans excitedly stood in anticipation of what they were about to experience. This joy, however, was slightly dampened when a sudden downpour soaked the line which had just begun to enter the venue. Though slightly wet, the crowd was still excited for what was to come. The Used took the stage by storm and performed their self-titled album in full, much to the excitement of the crowd. When everything had died down, many exited House of Blues into a downpour much heavier than the one that soaked them beforehand. Stating that they would be at the next night's show, many made plans to meet up with people they had only just met that night.
Saturday night arrived with much excitement and much better weather. Much like the previous night, the line seemingly stretched on forever, up Lansdowne, beyond Cask 'n Flagon and onto Brookline Avenue. The crowd chatted away as they waited to be granted admission to the venue they had occupied less than 24 hours ago. Little did they know that a line was forming on the other side of Fenway Park for another concert, this one by X-Ambassadors who would be playing a show that night for a select crowd in the ballpark, and the next night for a sold-out crowd at House of Blues. Like the previous night, The Used took the stage by storm and performed "In Love and Death" in full and the crowd loved every second of it.
When everything was said and done the crowd exited House of Blues to a dazzling fireworks display at Fenway Park that lit up the street and surround area; a fitting end to a perfect two nights. The pictures below are some of our favorites from Saturday.
