Bangkok’s music scene is all set to rock again later this year as One Republic take the stage at Impact Arena, Muang Thong Thani on September 21.

The band has spent more than two years travelling the world in a series of sold-out shows taking in 154 cities in 26 countries.

The band is comprised of bassist Brent Kutzle, guitarists Zach Filkins and Drew Brown, drummer Eddie Fisher and Grammy award-winning singer and songwriter Ryan Tedder who’s worked with the likes of U2, Adele, Beyonce, Maroon 5, Christina Aguilera and Ellie Goulding.

The quintet has been dominating charts all around the world since 2007 when they released their debut smash “Apologize”. 

The same year, they launched the debut album “Dreaming Out Loud” and in 2009 their “Waking Up” album went to the top of charts with three hit singles “All the Right Moves”, “Secrets”, and “Good Life.” 

“Native” followed in 2013 and featured further hits “If I Lose Myself”, “Love Runs Out“, I Lived” and “Counting Stars”. The video of “Counting Stars” has racked up more than 1.4 billion hits on YouTube and now stands as one of the site’s top 20 most-viewed videos of all time.

Ryan Tedder has been described as having “the Midas touch for modern hooks and melodies” and in just 10 years OneRepublic has already assembled a massive catalogue of earworm hits that continue to receive airplay across the globe.

The band’s latest album “Oh My My” is a blend of alt-rock, gospel, synth-pop, and nu-disco. It shapes those eclectic elements into songs built on both masterfully expansive arrangements and bravely intimate lyrics in songs like “Let’s Hurt Tonight”, “Kids”, “Perfect Disaster”. 

Tickets starting at Bt2,000 go on pre-sale tickets on Tuesday (June 20) and Wednesday (June 21) for Citibank credit card holders and on June 22 to 23 for Live Nation members. Public ticket sales start June 24 at all ThaiTicketMajor counters.
