The bright lights are blinding in the dark room. The people around are sweaty and wearing way too much perfume. There’s something sticky on the floor and the whole crowd is too close together but no one cares. Then the crowd sees what they are there for, suddenly the bass starts and the cheers follow.
The room was packed at the Black Mass Tour featuring: Black Veil Brides, Falling in Reverse, Set It Off, and Drama Club. Doors opened at 7 PM with people lined down the block in the cold. Fans were there at 2 PM just to stand in line. The concert was at “The Complex” in Salt Lake City.
Drama Club kicked off the night by playing dubstep, an electronic mix of rock and rap, and getting the crowd ready for the next band, Set It Off.
Set It Off is a wild newer band. The lead singer, Cody Carson, crowd surfed and really got the fans pumped.
Falling in Reverse was on next and they were incredible. Ronnie Radke talked to the fans and sang songs from the old album, The Drug in me is you as well as the new album, Fashionably Late.
Black Veil Brides was the last band up. The first song they played was “Heart of Fire” off the new album Faithless. The band played with excitement and energy that matched the fans’. They sang every word as if they had always known the song.
“The best moment in a concert is when the artist stops singing and the crowd continues and they just smile.” said Bryan Stars, a band reviewer.
The fans were in a pit of sweat and screams but still sang along to every song, it was an unforgettable night. The involvement between the crowd and the bands was what made the show so great. The interaction ranged from crowd surfing, mosh pits, and games.
Andy Biersack, lead singer of Black Veil Brides, gave a heartwarming speech on how much the band appreciates their fans. The band played their hearts out and in return the crowd seemed to give them their hearts.
“It was really great and just wonderful,” said senior, Adrian Mitchell. “It was a new experience for me and REALLY LOUD!”
