We recently had to opportunity to check out and photograph Pierce The Veil’s “The Made to Destroy Tour” with Neck Deep and I Prevail. You can check out our photos and review, after the break.
The Made to Destroy tour featuring Pierce the Veil, Neck Deep, and I, Prevail made its way to The Pageant in St. Louis.
Opening the night was I, Prevail. They never seem to disappoint whenever I see them live and this show was no exception. Playing originals such as ”Stuck in your head”, “Scars”, and their most popular cover “Blank Space”, by Taylor Swift, as well as a medley involving “Killing in the Name” by Rage Against the Machine. Their stage presence always seems to get the crowd hyped up and their energy does not diminish for the entire set. After the show, they were around the merch area meeting fans and taking pictures.

Up next was Next Deep. Now if you’ve never seen them live, you are missing out. Not only are they all smiles throughout the set but they also never stay in one place and are all over the stage. They try to get the crowd involved as much as possible and keep them dancing. Playing new songs such as “Kali Mai”, “Can’t Kick up the Roots”, “Losing Teeth”, “Serpents”, and “December”, they made sure to also play crowd favorites such as “A Part of Me” and others.

Closing the night was Pierce the Veil. As the intro started the band members came out of a cutout of a spaceship and onto the stage to a cheering crowd. Not wasting any time starting the set, they opened with “Dive In” from their recent album Misadventures and continued to slay the stage with old and new songs. Singing along to “Caraphernelia”, “Texas is Forever”, “Kissing in Cars”, “The Divine Zero”, “King for a Day”, and many, many more the crowd could be heard over Vic’s voice. At one point during the show a lucky fan was brought on stage during the beginning of “Bulletproof Love” and was serenaded by Vic. What was also nice was being told the story behind some of the songs, such as “Hold on til May” before it was played. Having a backdrop change during their set, Pierce the Veil always have surprises up their sleeve for a show. Complete with multiple confetti and streamers being blown at the crowd more than once throughout the set, it seemed like the night was not going to end.

This was definitely not a show to be missed. All the bands on the lineup are a good time and I strongly encourage attending a show if the tour is coming to a venue near you.
