We Came As Romans’ vocalist Dave Stephens told the sold out crowd, “Kyle’s favorite thing about music was how it brought people together, Kyle’s life was so short, but this just shows how many people he reached and influenced. These songs meant the world to Kyle. This was his favorite place to be. He’d probably hate that we were all crying, but he wouldn’t hate this many people being in this room… and he wouldn’t have hated all his best friends being here and singing songs.”

The remaining members of We Came As Romans, who have been touring on as they know it’s what Pavone would have wanted them to do, wore black Promise Me shirts as they performed an 18-song set with special guests. Among the guests were, fellow Detroit rockers I Prevail, who covered WCAR’s “Wasted Age;” Memphis May Fire’s Matty Mullins, who sang “Lost in the Moment;” Iowa metalcore group For Today, reuniting for the first time in two years to play “Tear It Down;” Jess Ess on “Mis/Understood,” Joe Buras of Born of Osiris for “Regenerate;” Crown The Empire’s Andrew Velasquez on “Fade Away;” Set It Off’s Cody Carson for “World;” and Hollywood Undead’s Danny Murillo on “Cold Like War.” Original We Came As Romans’ drummer Eric Choi returned to the stage with the band for a rendition of “To Plant a Seed,” whilst I Prevail’s Gabe Helguera and Cold Like War album co-producer Nick Sampson joined the band for “Encoder.” August Burns Red frontman Jake Luhrs joined the band for a explosive performance of “Taking Back Roots.”
