What might possibly be titled the best tour of 2014, Black Veil Brides Black Mass Tour made a stop in San Francisco last night.  They brought the top notch lineup to the legendary Warfield Theater in San Francisco. The line outside the venue circled around Market Street and it was filled with concertgoers of all ages, styles, genres, etc. The crowd was there to do one thing, show their love for music and to support these great bands.

We will be bringing you complete photo galleries and full coverage of each band in the coming days, but we wanted to give you a quick recap of the night.

Drama Club, the electric and mysterious DJ duo started the show off right by delivering a full energetic dose of elecro shock pop. They got the crowd completely fired up and even did a remix of Andy Black’s They Don’t Need To Understand. The two were intense as their spectacular stage presence captured everyone’s attention. They were the perfect opener to get the crowd on their feet and ready for an unbelievable show.

Set It Off hit the stage and the adrenaline in the crowd was raised up and you couldn’t help but get infected with the high powered vitality on that stage. It was great to see the crowd sing along to fan favorites as well as their new song, Why Worry. If you weren’t familiar with Set It Off before that night, I am sure you left the Warfield acknowledging that they just might be your new favorite band.

Falling In Reverse did it again as they always do….. Put on a great show and they seem to push the bar higher each time, and easily meeting it. Ronnie shined with his over the top spectacular stage presence. Without a doubt, he is the Champion of the stage! He literally makes sure that everyone in that venue is having the time of their life, singing along and having fun. Their set had a cool backdrop with the middle fingers in the air adorning  two basketball hoops which went great with their Falling In Reverse team uniforms. They even ended their set by playing The Drug In Me is You, not only once…. but twice which brought the excitement of the crowd to paramount levels.

The night was topped off with a stunning set by Black Veil Brides. They took to the stage and started right with the first single, Heart of Fire off their recently released self titled album. The energy that these five young men bring out is non stop and truly remains unmatched. The set was filled with a variety of old and new songs, even performing Coffin for the first time in San Francisco. The light show was stunning and the sound was crisp and spot on. If you listen to people talk about the rock scene being dead or the music industry is dying out, when you come to a BVB show, you will see the living and breathing proof that Rock will never die! I loved seeing the crowd which included fans as young as 6 years old and as seasoned rockers well into their senior years, singing along to every word. The music of Black Veil Brides does not limit itself to one genre, age, or lifestyle. It is simply pure rock and roll at its finest and that is why the attraction to them is insurmountable. You can’t help but love their music and even more so, the message they bring to the fans about staying true to who you, follow your dreams and stand up and be proud. Each generation brings those bands that will stand the test of time, Beatles, The Who, Rolling Stones, Kiss, Van Halen, Motley Crue, just to name a few, and now without a doubt; Black Veil Brides rightfully carries their place on the list.

Stay tuned as we will be bringing you full photo galleries of each set.  If The Black Mass 2014 Tour is coming to a venue even remotely near you, I would strongly urge you to make it to one of the shows. You will find yourself at what I think is the Best Tour of 2014!
