Elder Emo Heroes Team Up For The “Creative Control Tour” To Make Boca Raton Party Like Its 2005 Again – Photos and Review of the Pierce the Veil and The Used Concert at the Mizner Park Amphitheater in Boca Raton, FL

The sold-out crowd at the beautiful Mizner Park Amphitheater in Boca Raton was bursting with energy and excitement this Memorial Day Weekend as The Used and Pierce the Veil took the stage for an unforgettable night of music. With opening acts DeathbyRomy and Don Broco setting the tone, the concert proved to be a rollercoaster of emotions, leaving the audience in awe and wanting for more. I first saw these bands on the Vans’ Warped Tour as a young lad with dyed black hair, and it was pretty awesome to see that the younger kids these days were keeping the scene alive and still coming out to shows. And what made it even more impressive was the fact that some of them probably weren’t even alive when these bands got their start!

Kicking off the evening was DeathbyRomy, who brought a fresh and unique sound (and look) to the stage. Lead singer Romy Flores’s combination of haunting melodies and powerful vocals captivated the crowd from the first note, and her impressive backing band did an awesome job hyping up the crowd.  Their ability to seamlessly blend different genres added depth to their performance, and it was evident that they left a lasting impression on those in attendance. The band’s stage antics and Romy’s amazing singing meant DeathbyRomy set the bar high for the rest of the evening, especially considering that this was only their first nationwide tour!

Next up, British band Don Broco took the stage with their infectious energy and catchy tunes. Lead singer Rob Damiani and the rest of the band’s enormous energy and enthusiasm was contagious, and the crowd couldn’t help but get swept up in their vibrant performance. The band displayed some of the songs from their most recent release “Amazing Things” including “Gumshield” and “Bruce Willis“, as well as some of their more well known songs like “Everybody“.  Don Broco’s ability to engage the audience and create an atmosphere of pure fun was truly remarkable, and their music struck a chord with fans of all ages.

As the anticipation grew, it was time for the headliners to take center stage. As the crew finished their work behind the giant curtain bearing The Used’s name, the band appeared on stage to a screaming crowd. Kicking into the first song “Take It Away“, confetti cannons fired into the crowd and the curtain dropped to reveal the band on a stage adorned with flowers. Known for their raw emotion and intense stage presence, The Used delivered a performance that was nothing short of electric. The band wasted no time in launching into the hits, playing mainly songs from their first (and most famous) three albums, immediately grabbing the audience’s attention with their high-octane energy.

Lead vocalist Bert McCracken’s commanding presence and emotive delivery resonated deeply with fans, drawing them into every word and note. From their older songs like “The Taste of Ink” and “I Caught Fire” to a track from their newest album “Toxic Positivity,” The Used showcased their evolution as a band while staying true to the signature sound that made them famous. The crowd sang along passionately to every song, creating a powerful sense of unity within the venue and the band’s connection with the audience was unwavering throughout the entire set. The Used finished up their time on stage with “People Are Vomit” and “Pretty Handsome Awkward“, and the crowd cheered loudly as the band took their final bow.

Pierce the Veil took the stage after The Used, and they also brought their A-game to the Mizner Park Amphitheater. The band’s melodic post-hardcore sound was a perfect complement to the evening, providing a balance of intensity and beauty. Kicking off their set with “Death of an Executioner” from their latest album “The Jaws of Life“, the band played an incredible setlist that flawlessly combined their older hits with newer songs. The band sounded as tight as ever, and lead vocalist Vic Fuentes showcased his impressive vocal range, effortlessly hitting high notes and delivering the heartfelt lyrics his songs are famous for. The rest of the band’s tight musicianship and stage presence were remarkable, and Pierce the Veil kept the audience captivated from start to finish. Capping off their set with “King for a Day“, the band departed to a crowd screaming for more.

The “Creative Control” tour stop at the Mizner Park Amphitheater was a a resounding success and another testament to the power of live music. The combination of DeathbyRomy and Don Broco as opening acts, followed by the explosive performances of The Used and Pierce the Veil made for an unforgettable night. The venue provided an intimate setting, allowing fans to feel a deep connection with the artists and have a concert experience unlike any other. It was a night that will surely be remembered by all who attended, solidifying The Used and Pierce the Veil as forces to be reckoned with in the heavy music scene.
