The Rave In Milwaukee, Wisconsin is one of the most well known venues in Wisconsin. Many killer rock shows take place here, and on a Tuesday night Papa Roach and Falling in Reverse came to give Milwaukee a mind blowing show. The turn out for a Tuesday night was incredible!
Opening up the show to an already packed house was 4 piece band Falling in Reverse from Los Vegas, Nevada. Frontman Ronnie Radke showed an absurd amount of energy on stage. Fans that have seen Falling in Reverse, and first timers, were losing their mind to the music. Opening up their set with “I’m Not a Vampire” off their album “The Drug In Me is You” had fans wild right from the beginning. Falling in Reverse also performed their song “Superhero” off their new 2017 album “Coming Home”. Falling in Reverse was a great act to get the crowd riled up for headliner, Papa Roach.
Next, what we’ve all been waiting for. 4 piece band from Vacaville, California Papa Roach! Before the curtain dropped, the crowd was encouraged to chant “Fuck Papa Roach” and before they knew it this legendary band was taking the stage with their song “Crooked Teeth”. Frontman Jacoby Shaddix definitely did have his dancing shoes on tonight. Papa Roach played many of their well known songs like “Scars”, “Gravity”, “Getting Away with Murder” and many more. In the midst of playing their song “Forever” they played a part of “In The End” by “Linkin Park” as a great mini tribute to incredibly missed vocalist Chester Bennington. Jacoby spoke some great words about Chester and it was a memorable moment. It was towards the end of the set with Papa Roach and the crowd was so anxious to hear a fan favorite song “Last Resort” and Of course Papa Roach delivered that song at top notch. The cherry on top was when vocalist Jacoby came off stage in the midst of “Last Resort” to sing with fans and shake hands. It was a great ending. But the crowd wasn’t ready for it to be over yet, so Papa Roach closed out their 18 song set with their song “…To Be Loved”. With holiday spirit 102.9 The Hog presented Milwaukee with a great night with Papa Roach. Catch Papa Roach at a remaining show on this tour, and next year on a headlining 2018 tour with Nothing More and Escape The Fate!
