Check Out This Gallery Of We Came As Romans’ Tribute Show To The Late Kyle Pavone
The show, which took place at the 1500-capacity Fillmore Detroit, saw the band play a 17-song set, featuring special guests from Memphis May Fire (vocalist Matty Mullins pictured above with WCAR co-vocalist Dave Stephens), I Prevail, August Burns Red, Hollywood Undead, For Today and Born Of Osiris.
“Kyle’s favourite thing about music was how it brought people together,” Stephens told the crowd. “Kyle’s life was so short, but this just shows how many people he reached and influenced.
“These songs meant the world to Kyle,” he adds. “[The Fillmore] was his favourite place to be. He’d probably hate that we were all crying, but he wouldn’t hate this many people being in this room – and he wouldn’t have hated all his best friends being here and singing songs.”

Kyle’s mother, Caroline (above) took to the stage, along with his sister Isabel, and thanked the fans for celebrating her son’s life that evening.
“There are no words left for me to say…We just want to thank you for being [his] friends, his fans and his family,” she said. “We love you. Kyle loves you.”
