“It was a little nerve wracking, but it was exciting,” Anya Marina said about seeing her song Satellite Heart in the movie the night before. “It’s in the scene where Edward is driving Bella home and they’re sort of listening to me on the radio, which was a trip.”
Band of Skulls, who opened the concert and performed their song Friends, admitted it was the first time they played the song live. “I think it’s the motorbike scene, I just found that out yesterday,” Russell Marsden told RadarOnline.com. Fans are disappointed Rob won’t be singing on the New Moon soundtrack but the band said they’d be happy to have their fellow Brit play with them. “He’s quite the musician isn’t he?” Russell Mardsen said.
“We’re in a party scene, I think it’s Bella’s birthday party,” Sea Wolf lead singer Alex Brown Church told RadarOnline.com about the placement of their song The Violet Hour. Church describes the song as “Kind of a fun upbeat song.”
After Death Cab for Cutie performed Meet Me on the Equinox Rob Pattinson, Taylor Lautner and Kristen Stewart arrived on stage. “Thank you so much,” said Kristen, looking glamorous in a black dress with a sleek up do and red lipstick. “Please give it up for Death Cab for Cutie and all the rest of the bands who made the New Moon soundtrack so cool,” she told the roaring crowd.
