The World Tour | NOV 17/JAN 23
Pomona, CA/San Diego, CA
I was fortunate enough to catch the first day of both legs of Pierce the Veil and Sleeping With Sirens “World Tour” each leg offering different opening support yet closing with same killer production each night. Make no mistake, this was deserving of a “World Tour” title, this is the big leagues, a huge production with a huge crew behind it and it showed. Each band brought a powerful and well rehearsed showcase of the material that’s launched them to this level of fame. Audience inclusivity is the game with these guys and they win every time, giving their fans exactly what they’re looking for.
Leg 1 – The Fox Theatre – NOV 17
This Wild Life opened the night and loosened up the crowd with their catchy acoustic pop-rock.
Beartooth then took to stage and flipped the mood on it’s head with their heavy and perfectly chaotic set.
Sleeping With Sirens production was on point with production via their own theme song, video and light panels connected to live streaming cameras on stage.
Normally fans get bummed out when bands play mostly new material but this isn’t the case with Pierce the Veil who’s newer material highlights the night and translates perfectly into their live set.
Kellin Quinn joined PTV during “King For A Day” perfect encore for this tour.
Leg 2 – SDSU – JAN 23
PVRIS secured their place on my car playlist for an indefinite amount of time after this show. The first hook of their first song caught me. This was actually PVRIS’s biggest show of their career up that point but you couldnt tell with the amount of confidence they kicked off this tour with.
Mallory Knox played their first US show ever on this tour, while the audience was unfamiliar they grooved along during the whole set as they were slowly convinced there was good reason they belonged on this lineup.
Sleeping With Sirens yet again plows through the same set with even more energy for an even bigger audience.
And Pierce the Veil brought down the house during the biggest home town show of their career.
