Swedish House Mafia is made up of a trio of DJs named Axwell, Steve Angello, and Sebastian Ingrosso. Angello and Ingrosso met as children then Axwell didn’t become a member until years later. They started making music back in 2007 and even made a song with recently interviewed Deborah Cox called “Leave the World Behind.”
They have worked with many artists over the years finally hitting it big with the single “Don’t You Worry Child.” It seems like bad timing that they announced last year that this would be their last tour together. Appropriately titled One Last Tour this was the concer to see and sold out The United Center.
Behind turntables and a barricade the trio played their singles like “Greyhound” taking turns to play their own favorites. The crowd went wild for their remix of “Every Teardrop Is Waterfall” by Coldplay. Speaking of the crowd there was lot of wild behavior and security seemed overwhelmed at times. A fight broke out in the lobby and some innocent onlookers were hurt so be careful when attending a mafia show in the future but since there won’t be any I guess we won’t have to worry too much about that one.
“Don’t You Worry Child” the fun continued after the fighting with song after song. Axwell’s version of Temper Trap’s “Sweet Disposition” was excellent and their “Save the World” brought the house down. They waved goodbye to Chicago as a team forever before heading to Canada for their next stop.
The tour has now been extended and the Mafia will close out the Ultra Festival at the end of this month on March 24.
