On Wednesday April 17, Beartooth’s Disease Tour made a stop at the London Music Hall in London, Ontario. Accompanied by Hands Like Houses and Like Pacific. The Ohio rockers brought an action packed show that lived up to fan expectation. Without Of Mice & Men, who have cancelled several tour dates due to a medical emergency, the three bands amped up and crushed it.
Like Pacific got the night going with a high-energy performance to get the crowd going early. The hard-hitting melodic rock band knew how to work the stage and engage the crowd song to song. Serving as a spark to the night, the Toronto rockers delivered.
Up next, all the way from Australia, came Hands Like Houses. Playing a strong mix of music off of several albums, the rockers gave their fans a night to remember. The set had a little bit of everything, which rose the energy in the building tenfold.
The headliners drew a full venue out of London and delivered an incredible performance. Emerging on stage to “We Will Rock You” by Queen, Beartooth had fans crowd surfing before they even struck a chord. Once they took the stage, the crowd roared and the pit opened up for some quality moshing. Playing music from all over their timeline, the band hit their fans with everything they could ask for and then some. The performance even included an extensive drum solo from drummer Connor Denis.
Overall the show was worth every penny, the crowd had a blast and so did the bands. It didn’t feel like just another show on just another tour. It was evident the bands thoroughly enjoyed their time with the people that love their music.
