I had the pleasure and opportunity to attend the We Came as Romans and Crown the Empire co-headlining tour featuring ERRA and SHVPES.This show was at the House of Blues Chicago April 11th, and it was nothing shy of amazing.
The openers ERRA and SHVPES were both extremely talented bands that knew how to interact with their audience. Though most of the crowd was a bit unfamiliar with them, the high energy of their performance didn’t stop everyone from having a great time
Next was We Came as Romans. From the second this band stepped on stage, the energy was high. Crowd surfers flew and the mosh pits were open. The emotion was high as the band brought up their late band member, Kyle Pavone. A chant of “Kyle” even started to commemorate his memory. This was a performance I won’t forget.
After We Came as Romans, Crown the Empire was next. This band performed with such ease and exhilaration, and I could tell their fan base really connected to them on a personal level. Again, there were crowd surfers having the time of their lives, lyrics being screamed back to the stage, and a whirlwind of emotions coming from the audience. The band played with such enthusiasm and joy, you could tell they were having the time of their lives.
This entire show and lineup was one I won’t forget. If you want to attend a high energy, exciting and fun metal show, this would be the one to catch!
