Cage the Elephant returned to Phoenix on Sunday, July 21st 2019 with a striking theatrical performance. Lead singer Matt Schultz’ demeanor left you feeling euphoric during his constant flow from the stage to the manic fans in the front row. Grouping iconic songs such as “No Rest for the Wicked” and “Trouble” with paralyzing silences allowed his stage persona to step into the spotlight. He countered his intensifying character with explosive energy, dancing, and homemade masks brought to the stage only to be ripped apart. Shedding clothes in the 106 degree heat, the band performed with a transparent authenticity that won’t be forgotten.
