The No Guts No Glory tour feat. Pierce the Veil came to the Bottom Lounge in Chicago. On this tour were supporting acts Miss May I, Woe, Is Me, The Amity Affliction, and Letlive. You can check out our review after the break!

I arrived at Bottom Lounge to a sold out packed room and was not surprised at all. I looked around the room and saw many concert goers in a Miss May I or Pierce The Veil t-shirt. I have seen Pierce The Veil and Miss May I together previously on the Winterizer tour and was guaranteed they were going to put on a great show.

Both The Amity Affliction and letlive got the show started off right! Both bands were full of energy and they got everyone in the crowd pumped to see Woe, Is Me, Miss May I and Pierce The Veil. I definitely recommend checking out both of these bands. You won’t regret it.

After The Amity Affliction and letlive got done slaying the crowd, Woe, Is Me took the stage. I have never seen this band live before, but I knew that they were currently one of the hottest bands out there. The band had an incredible energy from the beginning of their set. Their vocalist had set the bar so high from the beginning and just kept on delivering throughout the set. They had the crowd moving and singing almost every word to their songs especially when they played their cover of Katy Perry’s “Hot and Cold”. If you have never seen them live or listened, they are a band you definitely need to give a chance.

Next up was Miss May I. I have seen them about three or four times before this tour and every single time I watch them, they progressively get better and better. The energy from their music keeps your bobbing up and down throughout the set. They have their hooky choruses that everyone always sings along to and then you have their crushing breakdowns that the crowd goes crazy over. Their set definitely had one of the craziest mosh pits that night. Through the entire twenty minute set Miss May I had the crowd off their feet and wanting more.

Finally, it was time for the band that most people had come to see, Pierce The Veil. They had opened up with a little sample intro that followed with a Grim Reaper coming out on stage. Once the Grim Reaper had left the stage and Pierce The Veil took over, the entire crowd went ballistic and you could barely hear front man Vic Fuentes’ own voice. The band opened up with “The Boy Who Could Fly” and immediately had the crowd singing along and dancing. The energy through the set kept getting higher and higher. They brought it down a notch when they played their cover of Bruno Mars’ “Just The Way You Are” halfway through the set. The bands’ fast paced rock definitely had the crowd moving and dancing all night long. They closed their set with “Caraphernelia” and even had Levi from Miss May I jump in for some guest vocals. Pierce The Veil is definitely a band that you must see live, they definitely won’t disappoint.

The tour was a huge success. It definitely did not let the crowd down. If you haven’t seen any of these bands live, you need to make it out a show the next time they come though near you!
