Last night (September 18), We Came As Romans performed their first live show since the tragic death of vocalist Kyle Pavone.
The band confirmed last week that, despite losing their frontman, they'd be bravely heading out on the road with Bullet For My Valentine. And last night marked the first of the shows, at The Pageant in St. Louis, Missouri.
Dave Stephens said onstage before performing Lost In The Moment: “A few weeks ago, we lost our best friend our bandmate, our brother, our singer/keyboardist Kyle Pavone. And this is our first show that we’ve done without him. Thank you guys for being so accepting tonight.
“This is something I wasn’t sure we’d ever get to do again. I think it’s what he would have wanted. I think it’s the best way to honor his legacy.”
He later continued: “One of the things that I admired most about him was his ability to not regret his past, not worry about his future and live in the present and enjoy that moment, because he believed things could change so quickly and those great things could be taken from you in a heartbeat.”
