Bring Me The Horizon brought their American Nightmare Tour into Philadelphia, PA’s Temple University campus based Liacouras Center Arena on March 22nd, 2017 with very Special Guests Underoath and Beartooth. This is a tour that nobody wants to miss out on seeing, as it includes one of the biggest bands in the scene currently along with the nostalgia of Underoath and the heavy hitting Beartooth.
Ohio natives, Beartooth launched the evening with their incredible stage presence and Caleb Shomo’s roaring screams starting the show off strong with the title track off their latest/second studio album, “Aggressive.” Beartooth show was mind-blowing, crowd-surfers pouring over the barricade, fans singing the lyrics back to the band louder then Caleb Shomo’s roars that filled the arena. It was unfortunate that their set was only about 25-30 minutes as they definitley deserved to be on stage performing much longer, if not playing a headline set at the arena on this night as the fans loved them and knew every word to each song. Ending their set with every angsty teens anthem “Hated,” which got the crowd going even more, the crowd even chanting for one more song as they exited the stage.
Next up, was Underoath, who got to play for 60-minutes filling their set with a blend of fan favorites from every album they’ve ever released. Despite the fact that most of the crowd was not very familiar with Underoath, which is unfortunate as they are missing out on some extraordinary tunes, however the metalcore band were still able to deliver a very high energy set with lots of crowd surfers, moshing and the first circle pit was seen during their set. You could feel the energy in the crowd as these pioneers of music commanded the crowds attention. Underoath was definitley a great addition to the American Nightmare Tour.
Bring Me The Horizon then taking control of the stage, with their anthem “Happy Song” taken off of their latest album titled That’s The Spirit launching streaming that showered the crowd as the song kicked off with fans screaming and moshing like wild animals. This tour for Bring Me The Horizon was definitley their biggest one yet, and the production was next level, with a full stage length video wall surround the band which had beautiful mind-blowing projections to fit each song. Make sure when BMTH comes to your city even if it is on a festival, that you get out and see them as you will not regret it!
