After hearing little from The Rocket Summer for over a year, Bryce Avary gifted his fans the news of a 10 year anniversary tour celebrating his community-building album, Do You Feel. The tour hit Warehouse Live in Houston, TX Saturday night and did not disappoint.

Beginning with playing Do You Feel in its entirety, it was a treat to hear some of the classics from that album that often don’t make it to the live show. The crowd attempted to match Bryce’s energy on stage, but that is a feat hard to accomplish. After “So, In This Hour,” it was clear that Bryce was just getting started.

Following the completion of Do You Feel, the crowd got to hear other TRS favourites such as: “FL,CA,” “Walls,” and “Hills and Valleys.” He capped off the first half of the show with his new single, released at the beginning of July, “Gone Too Long.”

As the crowd chanted for more, Bryce reappared on stage minus his band for some fan requests. Having already played for over an hour, the party continued on as fans screamed to hear their favourite songs from over 15 years of music. We were treated to more songs than usual, covering the majority of his albums. Calendar Days, Of Men and Angels, and Hello, Good Friend were included. Finally, as all good things must come to an end, the band was brought back on stage to rock out the end of the show with a few more songs. The ever classic “Brat Pack” was a big hit and the evening ended with a communal-chorus of “Come Alive.”

This was the longest set I’ve ever seen from The Rocket Summer. Maybe it’s because it was a Saturday night, or maybe it’s because he’s got the energy and fans to carry him forever. Whatever the reason, here’s a tour with the nostalgia, excitement, and energy you don’t want to miss. Remaining tour dates listed below photos.
