Last week the No Sun/ No Moon Tour and the Headspace Tour fused for a stacked show in Worcester. The combined bill included Issues, Volumes, Too Close To Touch, Sylar, The Devil Wears Prada, Veil Of Maya, Silent Planet, and Thousand Below. Despite an early starting time, the show drew a crowd spanning wall-to-wall.
Following Volumes and Veil Of Maya, The Devil Wears Prada took the stage in full force as they vaulted into “Daughter”, off of their latest work Transit Blues. The band immediately grasped the attention of the packed venue and played one of their strongest Palladium sets to date. The setlist followed with a throwback to “Sassafras” and “Assistant To The Regional Manager,” off of their 2009 release With Roots Above And Branches Below. As their performance unfolded and excitement grew, the pit grew wider and crazier. The group closed out their set strong with “Dez Moines” and “Danger: Wildman” off of With Roots Above And Branches Below, as well as “Reptar, King Of The Ozone” from 2007’s Plagues. As if The Devil Wears Prada’s set wasn’t enough good music for one night, Issues took the stage next.
The first things fans noticed when Issues took the stage was their alluring stage production. Complete with screens, vibrant lights, and a drum riser, the setup made their performance next-level. Issues opened with “COMA” off of their highly praised 2016 album Headspace, and followed with their popular OG track “Sad Ghost”. The set was filled with fan-favorites, and the crowd approved as they sang along to the catchy choruses. Issues’s pop-metal hybrid sound provided a pleasant contrast to The Devil Wears Prada’s prominently heavy music.
Both the Headspace Tour and the No Sun/ No Moon Tour are stacked with talent, from the openers to the headliners. The mashup of the two tours in Worcester provided a diverse roster of music to please fans of all genres. Although this combined date was one-of-a-kind, both tours are still in full force. Be sure to catch a date near you!
