Silverstein bagged quite the lineup on their 15-year anniversary tour of When Broken Things Are Easily Fixed bringing Capstan, As Cities Burn, and Hawthorne Heights with them on the road.
Capstan opened up with great energy and enthusiasm - getting the crowd going early - and you would almost believe they were headlining themselves with the performance they put on. Somehow, As Cities Burn managed to double that energy. No one on stage was still for more than a second - or so it seemed - and keeping up with them will definitely have you catching your breath after the set. This tour was my first time seeing Hawthorne Heights and I’d be lying if I didn’t say I felt like a kid again watching them play. I had to keep myself from bouncing around when they closed their set with “Ohio is for Lovers”. Closing out the show, Silverstein brought it all with them. I’ve seen them many times since my first in 2012 and every show somehow tops the last. The guys made it seem so effortless how they played off of each other. Getting to hear their oldest and greatest hits with this entire album had the crowd starstruck. I would definitely relive this show over and over if I had the chance.
