Falling In Reverse Bring Heat to Chilly New Yorkers With Help From Enter Shikari + Letlive
While snow was covering New York’s Time Square outside, things were heating up in the Best Buy Theater on Wednesday night (Nov. 7) with high energy from fans who stood in the messy cold weather to see Falling In Reverse, Enter Shikari and Letlive.
The phenomenal opening act Letlive performed with enormous amounts of passion and force. Their sincerity and intensity onstage was refreshing to see, not to mention the band’s very acrobatic frontman Jason Aalon Butler doing back flips and front flips and everything in between. Letlive’s set had the essence of an old school 90’s punk show at CBGB’s and for a New York crowd their presence was an invigorating one to see.
The UK lads of Enter Shikari always get fans jumping and their blood pumping especially with a vigorous set like theirs. The band has found an infectious balance of mixing a hardcore and metal style with electronic, dubstep feel that heightens the force of their set. Bassist Chris Batten has a knack for jumping into the crowd and the entire band of English men have some very fancy footwork.
You can’t talk about fancy foot work without talking about Falling in Reverse frontman Ronnie Radke, who can move with the best of them. FIR’s set started out with the very personal song ‘The Westerner’ which led into catchy singles ‘I’m Not a Vampire,’ ‘Pick Up the Phone,’ ‘Good Girls Bad Guys’ and much more off of the band’s debut record ‘The Drug In Me Is You.’ Falling In Reverse also played a cover of ‘Situations’ from Radke’s former band Escape the Fate.
Even though I See Stars were kicked off the tour, a few of their die-hard fans showed up. And despite the “I See Stars” chant, Radke didn’t seem to fazed by any of it as he thanked his diehard New York fans for trekking out to the show during a Nor’easter.
