The headliner for the show was A Day to Remember, and this was their very first headlining tour. They had a huge stage with which to prove they earned this opportunity, and they didn’t disappoint. The band coming out and getting the crowd into it from beginning to end was a great sight to see. I remember seeing A Day to Remember years ago playing a small venue in north Jersey to a crowd that fell in love with them. Those fans gave their all, and so did the band. I think this could be a good reason why A Day to Remember loves playing in New Jersey and even named one of their songs off their “Homesick” album after New Jersey. The set included confetti blasters and the band members with huge smiles on their faces, as vocalist Jeremy McKinnon gave out huge thanks between every song, along with praise to the crowd for going all out nonstop during the set. When they slowed it down, you could see that the band really means every word of their songs, and lives by their messages. They also have a new album coming out named “What Separates Me From You” due on November 15th, and I cannot wait to pick it up after hearing a new song at the show. A Day to Remember is a very hard-working band, touring nonstop and always taking time to talk to fans, and still finding a way to put out great albums and amazing live shows. I can’t wait to see them again when they come to New Jersey.
All together this is an amazing tour, it was an amazing show and I highly suggest that everyone go out to see these bands and pick up their new albums. They have never let me down and I’m sure they won’t let you down either. Support local and live music and keep the New Jersey scene alive, because bands love coming here to play unforgettable shows. I’d also like to thank WSOU for making it possible for me to go to these shows.
