Neon Trees Denver Pop Psychology

Neon Trees at Ogden Theatre

Note: Tickets were provided by Neon Trees but all photos and words are mine.

I saw Neon Trees live for the first time in 2011 when I was lucky enough to photograph Duran Duran and they were the opening act. I was blown away.

I was beyond lucky when Neon Trees invited me back to photograph their Pop Psychology tour stop in Denver at the Ogden Theatre – not only because they have become one of my favorite bands musically – but I knew it would be crazy fun to shoot them as the headliner.

I was totally right.

Tyler Glenn, the lead singer and ringleader, is visually stunning to watch and vocally impeccable. From a photographer’s perspective, he is the perfect subject. Interesting, emotional, colorful. Elaine Bradley on drums was hard to get, tucked back behind her kit, and when she came out to sing a few songs with Tyler my allotted time to photograph was over. But she killed it. Chris Allen and Branden Campbell round out the group with solid musical support. But, hey – this is Neon Trees. I got some fun photos of them too.

I have been saying, ever since Pop Psychology came out, that it was my album of the summer certainly… maybe my album of the year. It’s fun, upbeat, full of melodies and harmonies – but when you listen to the lyrics, there is a ton more there.

Just like Neon Trees the band.
