Papa Roach Destroy Chicago With A Night Of Hits & Singalongs (Review + Photo Gallery)

 

With just over 25 years of being a band Papa Roach showed why they are still considered legends in their genre on a packed Friday evening in Chicago at the Aragon Ballroom.

Opening the evening was Bad Wolves, featuring ex members of bands like God Forbid, In This Moment, Devildriver and more. With their blend of melodic metal and hard rock they had the crowd jumping, pitting, and singing along early on. Ending the set with their infamous cover of The Cranberries “Zombie”, Bad Wolves made sure to make some new fans this evening.

Following them were metalcore heavy hitters Asking Alexandia. With a more mainstream hard rock sound versus their older heavier side AA had the now packed room singing along to their hits and ballads.

The time finally arrived for the band everyone was waiting for, Papa Roach. With more hits than most bands could wish for, Jacoby Shaddix and company commanded the stage with hit after hit giving the crowd a full set of singalongs. Even their latest hits had the crowd going crazy but with songs like Getting Away With Murder, Scars, and Last Resort the crowd sang louder than the band could even play. With no signs are slowing down over time the band performed with such ease making their perfect set seem effortless. If you’ve never had the chance to catch Papa Roach now is the time, it’ll be an evening you won’t be forgetting.
