PAPA ROACH SHOW REVIEW BY TALIA FARBER.
We here at B.A.H. Magazine would like to introduce Miss Talia Farber who we hope will keep contributing to our fine online magazine!
Papa Roach in Ontario, California was phenomenal, the band definitely has come such a long way. They came on stage with Face Everything And Rise off their latest album F.E.A.R., most definitely hyping the crowd. I never took the time out to listen to new Papa Roach until this show, and I'm definitely happy with their new music. They've definitely changed from when I listened to them back in middle school, but definitely still making great music.
The show was pretty huge, I saw the whole floor packed and then the first rows of seats all packed with everyone standing up and watching. The people definitely poured in before Papa Roach came on. I had never been to Citizens Business Bank Arena before this, and it was most definitely a fitting venue for this tour lineup. Huge venue, huge stage, great sound, and incredible lights are all someone could hope for in a venue.
During a point in their set Papa Roach invited Maria Brink on stage with them and began to play Gravity off of F.E.A.R. which was awesome to be able to see. I loved the amount of intimacy Papa Roach brought to their set, my favorite moments definitely were when they played Scars in the audience, and an acoustic performance. Being able to see such a large band love their fans so much and do them a favor like that was heartwarming. It was definitely one of my favorite parts of the show. Another form of intimacy they brought was when they played Last Resort and Jacoby started to jump off stage and jump into the crowd and go wild with them. I absolutely love seeing bands do these sorts of things, it makes their performance more memorable.
Papa Roach played a great set of songs, some newer and some older, which was definitely enjoyable for all types of Papa Roach fans. This 3-piece band definitely super in sync with each other and had such a full sound for such a small band. Papa Roach is definitely a band I'll be seeing again in the future.
