Pierce the Veil/Sleeping with Sirens Tour Preview

The two most famous post-hardcore scene bands, Pierce the Veil and Sleeping with Sirens, are at it again for leg two of their co-headlined world tour they have had going on since late fall of last year. They are playing 30 dates across America with a VIP package available that includes a “meet and greet” with both bands, a photo with both bands, a limited edition tour poster, a VIP laminate, early entry into the show, a general admission ticket, and VIP concierge.

I will be attending the local San Diego show on Jan. 23 at Viejas Arena with special guests, Pvris and Mallory Knox. The doors open at 6 p.m. and the show starts at 6:45 with a $15 parking fee at the arena. Leg one of the America tour from last fall didn’t have a San Diego date and had only 21 dates.

Pierce the Veil will be releasing a new album at some point this January so this tour will help support that release. Their last album, “Collide with the Sky,” was released in July of 2012 and was supported by the Collide with the Sky Tour co-headlined with Sleeping with Sirens again and numerous other tours they have been performing in non-stop since this release.

In addition, Sleeping with Sirens will also be releasing a new album later in this year named “Madness” that this tour will help support. They just changed labels from Rise Records to Epitaph Records and released two singles. The first single, “Kick Me,” was released in November and the other single, “We Like it Loud,” was released on New Year’s Day.

General Admission for this tour at our location was $35 for pit and $28.50 for the seated area, and the VIP package was $100 with an included general admission ticket. I have now seen Pierce the Veil three different times in San Diego and Sleeping with Sirens twice. In the past year and a half, I have pretty much stopped listening to both of these bands. I hope this tour will help me get back into Pierce the Veil’s music because they used to be such a big part of my life.

Every time I have seen both of these bands, I have never been disappointed in their performances. Last time I saw both of these bands when they toured together, both bands played at least over 10 songs each with encores. They always know how to put on a show with lengthy guitar solos, fan interactive moments, and inspiring mini speeches of advice for fans that need hope for their lives.

I can’t wait to experience this concert again because I used to be obsessed with these bands when I was a middle-school student. It will be such heart-warming nostalgia to sing along to the songs that used to inspire my life when I was just starting high school. If you are a fan of these bands or want to go to a cool concert for your semester break, get your tickets as soon as possible because they are going out fast!
