YUNGBLUD connects with fans even through computer screens on digital “Weird Time of Life” tour

I’ve, unfortunately, always been a major skeptic (but not necessarily a critic) of YUNGBLUD and for no particular quantifiable reason. I could appreciate his climb and rise in popularity. In fact, when one of his songs would pop on I’d give it a listen and move about my day. I always told myself that maybe what was missing was that I needed to see him live.

The criticism that often comes with boybands is the idea that some industry professional snags five boys and contracts them to put out a few albums. The thing about In Real Life is that's not totally​ wrong. ABC launched a reality competition show called "Boyband" and the winners... well, they were put into a boyband. While they are continuing this spiral, in so many ways In Real Life seems to be breaking free. They're taking the mold, and understanding it, and breaking it apart. In Real Life,

Every show has its own particular energy curated by the artist, the city, and some sort of factor that I have yet to define.
