Papa Roach Rocked Grand Rapids Check Out Photos and Setlist Here
Papa Roach brought their "Kill the Noise Tour" to the GLC Live at 20 Monroe and if you missed the show here are some photos, setlist, and show review.
Kill The Noise Tour
Just like the poster states the "Kill the Noise Tour" features Papa Roach, Hollywood Undead, and Bad Wolves. All three bands are friends with one another and Papa Roach singer Jacoby Shaddix said "what better people to be stuck in a bubble with for a tour than some of my closest friends."
Bad Wolves on the Kill the Noise Tour
This was the first time Bad Wolves have been to Grand Rapids with their new singer Daniel "DL" Laskiewicz.
DL did a great job fronting Bad Wolves and his sound fit right in with the band had been doing all along. It has been a tough couple of years for the band switching singers during the pandemic and all the drama that went along with it but it looks like they survived.
Bad Wolves Setlist
Bad Wolves had a pretty short set seeing how they opened the show but here is what they played:
- Sacred Kiss
- Never Be the Same
- Killing Me Slowly
- No Masters
- If Tomorrow Never Comes
- Zombie (Cranberries Cover)
- I'll Be There
Personally, I thought the setlist could have been stronger with as many singles they have put out from their first two albums. I also get how they are trying to move away from the original singer and material he was a part of but I have learned over the years that fans want the hits.
I can't be too critical because the band did a great job and sounded good and they are finding their way with a new singer.
Hollywood Undead on the Kill The Noise Tour
As many festivals I have been to interviewing bands, this was my first time actually seeing a full set of Hollywood Undead. I have to admit going into it I was a bit skeptical but they won me over quickly and it turned out to be a great show.
I was very impressed with the entire Hollywood Undead team. Most all the members took turns on lead vocals, switched instruments from guitar, bass, and keyboards. There was a lot going on but it was done so smoothly.
During the show, they asked if anyone would like to come up on stage, so they brought up a young kid who was on his dad's shoulders and let him rock with Hollywood Undead for a song. It was definitely a cool moment during their set.
Hollywood Undead had a ton of fans in the audience and they got their money's worth. What I really liked about the band is I never knew what was coming next or who would be singing or playing instruments.
Hollywood Undead Setlist
Hollywood Undead was a great example of when you play the hits the fans get crazy. Here is what they offered fans in Grand Rapids:
- California Dreaming
- Dead Bite
- Whatever it Takes
- Comin' In Hot
- War Child
- Another Way Out
- Folsom Prison Blues (Johnny Cash Cover)
- Hear Me Now
- Everywhere I Go
All in all, it was a great set and I will go see them again when they are the headliner.
Papa Roach on the Kill The Noise Tour
Papa Roach has always been a favorite of mine. I can't tell you how many times I've seen them over the years but I know this, it has been at least once or more each tour they have been on.
Papa Roach always brings it every night and I have never seen a bad Papa Roach show. Singer Jacoby Shaddix is one of the best frontmen in the business and he really makes the show fun.
As many times as I have been to the GLC Live at 20 Monroe (under both names) that was the most crowd surfing, I have seen. I didn't expect a circle pit either but it was on.
At one point they had a guy with a video camera filming the band and the audience and was projecting it on the screen on stage and that was very cool and inclusive for the audience.
In all the times I've seen Papa Roach I think their background vocals have really improved and really made the songs much closer to the album live.
Papa Roach Setlist
Papa Roach has been around for over 20 years and has a lot of songs to choose from their 10 studio albums. Here is what they chose for Grand Rapids:
- Kill the Noise
- Getting Away With Murder
- Between Angels and Insects
- Song 2 (Blue Cover)
- Blood Brothers
- American Dreams
- Face Everything and Rise
- Cut the Line
- Born With Nothing, Die With Everything
- Stand Up
- To Be Loved
- Last Resort
- Born For Greatness
Papa Roach was fantastic as usual. The audience was electric and it sure made a Wednesday night feel more like a Saturday night.
I did notice one thing when Jacoby introduced the band, when he got to his name, he announced himself at Coby Dick like he used to go by back in the day. I don't if he is switching or was being nostalgic but you never know with him.
As many times as I have seen them, I will go again.
