The show opened up with Unity-TX who performed an electrifying, high energy performance. There’s no doubt in my mind that the band gained many new listeners and fans due to this tour. They were the perfect choice for an opening act. Their energy set the stage for an amazing night. They were the perfect hype men for the soon to hit the stage Co-Headliners. Next up was Holding Absence, a rock band from Cardiff, Wales formed back in 2015. I like others in the crowd was new to the music of Holding Absence, but they did not disappoint. The boys put on a very strong, crowd capturing performance. Holding Absence set was over, and it was time to set the stage for our first Co-Headliner. Fans began to push in and fill up the floor of the House of Blues Orlando. The house was packed, and you could hear the crowd getting very excited to see their favorites in Silverstein. The flag began to rise, and the crowd went wild. Cheers filled the venue as more people were still continuing to enter to main floor to get closer to the band. Lights began to go down, here they come; here comes the moment many have been waiting for.

It was time for Silverstein to hit the stage. The band began their set with “Infinite”. The crowd sang the lyrics back to Shane Told, Lead Singer creating a very powerful opening to the bands set. The set list was as follows: Infinite, It’s Over, Smile in Your Sleep, Smashed Into Pieces, Bad Habits, Vices, Whiplash, Die Alone (with Shaolin G from Unity-TX), and Ultraviolet. Here the band would take a new take on fan interaction. Shane announced to the fans that there were too many songs that they could/want to play that they wanted the crowd to take part in choosing which songs they would play. A wheel then came rolling out onto the stage. Told explained to the fans that this was their mystery wheel. He said to the crowd, “Let’s give this a spin and see what song we’re playing next”. The first spin landed on a classic, a bands throwback to one of their fan’s favorite songs, “Call It Karma”. Song two on the wheel was “Already Dead”. The band brought out crew, and a close friend from Orlando to spin the wheel to finish their setlist out. Song number 3 was “Massachusetts”. Silverstein’s fans were absolutely loving the older throwback songs that they were getting, in addition to the new songs they heard off the band’s new album, Misery Made Me. Fans were taking their opportunity to crowd surf up towards the stage and show the band that this was the night of their lives. Next up spun was “The Alter/Mary”, followed by “My Heroine”, and closing out the show was “The Afterglow”. The fan response to the wheel of songs was great. This was super innovative for the band to create something fun to keep their fans on their toes. I would love to see more creativity like this from bands in the future. Great job to Silverstein and giving that to their fans.

I had an absolutely great night. I was so thankful for Silverstein and their crew for having me out and allowing me to cover the show. I was able to photograph the evening and it did not disappoint. Silverstein put on an exceptional performance. This was not my first-time seeing Silverstein perform, but it definitely was one for the books. The energy of the show was unlike any show I had attended lately. Silverstein will always be one of those bands you hear on record, and you are blown away by their musicianship and lyrical ability. However, it is a whole new beast when you see the boys in person because they are incredible in person. If you closed your eyes, you could swear that their record was blasting through the stereo. Their performance quality is top notch. I look forward to seeing Silverstein perform in the future and hope to again capture the show for all their fans to see and live in the experience vicariously through myself. Thank you, gentlemen, for a great show, and an unforgettable night. Myself and your fans couldn’t have left happier with a better experience. Gallery from House of Blues Orlando, Florida below.
