Check out my full review in Pittsburgh Music Magazine here!
A Day to Remember hit the road with I Prevail, Beartooth, and Can’t Swim and on November 2nd they brought The Degenerates Tour to Pittsburgh at the Petersen Events Center. That being said, let’s dive in.
As a result of miscommunication at the gate, unfortunately, I missed most of Can’t Swim and by the time I arrived at my seat, they were performing their final song. From what I did hear though, they fit the sound and were a proper introduction to the rest of the evening.
So the first band I heard, second on the bill, Beartooth, from Columbus, Ohio. Beartooth really kicked it into gear. If I could describe Beartooth with a phrase, it would be “adrenaline pumping”. Beartooth embraced the energy and highly encouraged the crowd to start a circle pit, to which they did not disappoint. They brought a kind of energy that really spiked the crowd and lasted for the duration of the show.
Up next, we had I Prevail from Detroit, Michigan. First off, their lighting was beautiful. I loved watching the different colors paint the stage and the crowd’s faces. They used a ton of different colors and shades and I felt it really added a beautiful effect. Throughout their entire set, I saw a vast majority of the audience on their feet, consistently. In an arena setting, it’s very hard to get a large percentage of the crowd on their feet. But with this show, that was hardly the case. I looked around and saw members sitting in the 200 level seats on their feet as if the energy was infectious. All in all, I Prevail brought the Pittsburgh crowd an incredible hard rock experience.
Finally, we have A Day to Remember closing out the show. Originally from Ocala, FL, the band made their return to Pittsburgh and was ready to rock. The energy during their set was contagious, from the floor to the ceiling. There was hardly a single person in their seat. The band as a whole very clearly love what they do and really dedicate themselves to making sure the fan shows enjoy themselves, and the fans dedication is proven right back. A Day To Remember brought their all and made November 2nd a day to remember for the Pittsburgh crowd.
