Last night, NEEDTOBREATHE’s Into The Mystery Tour rolled through The Met in Philadelphia with special guest Switchfoot. The tour’s stellar production, complete with massive LED screens and bubbles (yes, bubbles), was a joy for the capacity crowd. With tons of tours hitting the road over the last few months, this tandem has proved to be a great package.

Later in the set, members of Switchfoot and The New Respects joined NEEDTOBREATHE for a jam of “When The Levee Breaks,” the Kansas Joe McCoy/Memphis Minnie classic that was made famous again by Led Zeppelin in the 70s.

They closed out the show with another piece from their latest record – “West Texas Wind.”
