Unfortunately, Maroon 5 were not allowing press photographers for the show, however Neon Trees more than made up for that with an extremely photogenic set. Photos by Michel Dussack

The shape of the stage also limited mobility for photographers, meaning Tyler was the only member who ended up near the photography area. Photos by Michel Dussack

Overall, it was an engaging set by one of the most fun pop rock bands out there that had the entire sold out arena dancing along. Photos by Michel Dussack
