On March 1, I attended the Black Veil Brides, Asking Alexandria, and Crown The Empire show at The Warfield in San Francisco, CA and it was a great show.
Crown The Empire opened the concert with an energetic performance. The band played a mix of songs from all three of their albums, offering a bit of variety. The music was slightly overpowering Andy Leo’s vocals, but other than that they were pretty much on point. A highlight from their set was their final track “Machines.”
Next, Asking Alexandria took the stage for an insane performance. The band opened with “Into The Fire” and from there they basically played a balance of new and old songs. It was cool to see Danny Worsnop back in the group, and his voice seemed to be even more powerful than it was in the past. The chemistry between him and the other members, especially guitarist Ben Bruce, was great as well. Highlights from their performance included: “To The Stage,” “The Final Episode (Let’s Change the Channel),” a mini acoustic set featuring “Vultures” and “Someone, Somewhere,” and their encore songs “Moving On” and “The Death Of Me.”
After Asking Alexandria, it was time for Black Veil Brides. The band kicked things off with “Faithless” before transitioning to “Coffin.” The group pretty much stuck to older material with a couple of songs from their latest album “Vale” thrown in for good measure. Between Jake Pitts and Jinxx’s impressive guitar work, Christian “CC” Coma’s thunderous drumming, Ashley Purdy’s bass lines, and frontman Andy Biersack’s robust vocals, they were pretty much solid on all fronts. Hell, even Jinxx’s violin skills were a sight to see. Highlights from their set included “I Am Bulletproof,” “Rebel Love Song,” “The Legacy,” “Knives And Pens” and their three sing encore which featured “Perfect Weapon,” “Fallen Angels,” and “In The End.”
