Lord Huron at Echo Beach

Lord Huron played Echo Beach last week for the Toronto stop of their 2022 tour, on a beautiful mid-week summer evening.


The LA-based band played a beautifully captivating show under the stars. Between the desert inspired stage set-up with glimmering lights that interacted with the music, to the bands use of the stage, and frontman Ben Schneider's energy, the show was nothing less of magnificent.


I saw Lord Huron about four years ago at Osheaga music festival and I remember all of the band members in suits, with a stage set-up that was very orchestral and dark. To see the stage be so desert inspired and colourful this time was an unexpected and exciting change. I also felt that Schneider and the band had a ton of more personality and seemed more comfortable than ever on stage with one another. Stage chemistry can truly change the perception of a concert dramatically- when you see the band having a good time, you have a good time.


One of the most enjoyable aspects of the show was during the track "The Ghost on the Shore" when Schneider left stage and came back with a skeleton mask and deep red stage lighting. The mask was so extremely, with the jaw of it moving with each of his words. It really set a new mood for the show and the crowd seemed to be in awe.


First Aid Kit opened up the night (a beautiful pairing, what a treat!) Check out some photos taken and edited by Josiah Botting, and the setlist below:
