Florida-based pop punk band A Day To Remember tear through the Pageant in St. Louis

On Tuesday, August 8th, 2017, A Day To Remember headlined a remarkable sold out show at The Pageant in Saint Louis, Missouri. This was not my first time seeing ADTR on tour; This Florida-based pop punk band has been touring across the United States since 2003. As I entered in to the venue, fans were packed wall-to-wall, ready to sing along with the band. You could really feel the energy buzzing around the sold out venue as the fans waited for ADTR to take the stage.

ADTR consists of five members: vocalist Jeremy McKinnon, guitarist Neil Westfall, bassist Joshua Woodard, drummer Alex Shelnutt, and lead guitarist Kevin Skaff. Their style has often been described as “metalcore,” a fusion music genre using elements of extreme metal and hardcore punk music. This blend is typically followed by a pop punk chorus, which makes their songs super catchy and instant hits with their fans.

As soon as ADTR took the stage, they set off two confetti cannons filled with streamers, which immediately kicked off their explosive setlist (pun intended). ADTR began with “All I Want” and fans screamed the lyrics from the tops of their lungs as the whole venue moved with energy. Halfway through the show, the band brought out about a dozen oversized beach balls into the crowd to keep the energy going. The venue itself appeared to be moving, seeing as there was not a still moment during their entire setlist.

ADTR is a perfect blend of catchy pop sing-alongs with incredibly heavy breakdowns. Their latest album, “Bad Vibrations” continues that trend and makes for an amazing show. Be sure to catch one of there upcoming dates:
