I This summer at the Van’s Warped Tour, there is no arguing that one of the biggest drawing bands on the 2017 line-up was the hard-rock/metal-core I Prevail who followed the Warped Tour with the announcement of their Rage On The Stage fall tour with support from Escape The Fate, The Word Alive and We Came as Romans.
The tour has been selling out across the US — but that should come as no surprise. Merging old favorite veterans (Escape The Fate) with these exhilarating newcomer bands that have easily done a clean-sweep of their genre, the Rage On The Stage tour kicked off in late September and will be following through until early December, squeezing in as much of the North America as humanly possible in over fifty shows.
The tour effortlessly lived up to its name from the very moment Escape The Fate took the stage, starting off the night with “Just A Memory” off their latest 2015 release, Hate Me. Things continued to build as The Word Alive highlighted the best of their releases, amping up the crowd and receiving an overwhelmingly positive response. By the time We Came As Romans took the stage, you’d expect this to be as good as it gets – they began their set with “Cold Like War” and wrapped it up with the ringing notes of “Hope.” But the night was only just beginning.
I Prevail hit the stage with a full-on wrestling ring set up. As the band made their glorious entrance, lead singer Brian Burkheiser addressed the crowd: “I bet a lot of you are wondering why I have a wrestling ring on stage,” he teased, waiting for only a beat before adding, “Well… it’s because I fucking felt like it!” and kicking off their set in true rock fashion, blasting into their Ring Introduction, not a single person standing static in the crowd.
