As part of their summer outdoor tour, Coheed and Cambria, and Taking Back Sunday set out nationwide with direct support from The Story So Far. This leg of the tour made it’s way to the newly renovated MECU Pavilion in Baltimore, MD. Check out the gallery below as Luis Rosales was able to capture some moments from the show.
Up first for the night is The Story So Far as they kicked it off with “Empty Space,” “Things I Can’t Change,” and “Roam” with fans walking in getting to their seats and watch their set. The band for the most part was stationary with nearly no production as there was still sunlight out. With the only lighting on stage being the red light overhead, The Story So Far kept it pretty simple. Sound was good being the first act of the night as fans got ready for what’s to come.
A throwback band for almost everyone in attendance, Taking Back Sunday took the stage next as they opened with “What’s It Feel Like To Be A Ghost?” “Error: Operator,” and “You Can’t Look Back.” Immediately, the production took a massive step up as they were brightly lit up with plenty of lighting from every angle. Every song was filled with fans singing along to every word and dancing. Playing hits like “Liar (It Takes One To Know One,” you couldn’t help but to be involved. After playing an astonishing 17 song set, it left many fans satisfied, yet ready to blown away for what was to come next.
Despite a blown monitor causing the band to come on 25 minutes late, Coheed and Cambria didn’t let that slow them down as Baltimore was getting anxious to get things going. Claudio Sanchez and the rest of the band came out ready and blew everyone away with the first note of “Prologue” going into “The Dark Sentencer.” Once again, the production was mind blowing as they had light beams going in every direction with their signature logo lit up in the back behind the drum set riser, not to mention the sound was absolutely massive and filled the city with their music. Since they had some technical difficulties, Coheed and Cambria was forced to cut their set early as they finished with their biggest song “Welcome Home” to end a legendary night.
