Papa Roach and their ‘Kill the Noise’ tour torched the house at The Wellmont Theater last night in Montclair, New Jersey with support from Bad Wolves and Hollywood Undead. Celebrating it’s 100th year, the venue has some ticketed seating on the main floor, ample surrounding parking garages and reasonable food/drink selections in the heart of downtown.
The pulsing crowd was near capacity when Los Angeles hard rockers Bad Wolves took the stage. Featuring new vocalist, D. L., they performed a seven-song set including, ‘Sacred Kiss’, ‘If Tomorrow Never Comes’ and ‘Lifeline’ from their most recent offering titled ‘Dear Monsters’ as well as their insanely popular cover of The Cranberries ‘Zombie’. Their high-energy performance had the tension of a live wire and left expectations high for the next acts to come.
Hollywood Undead exploded onto the stage and set the fans into a wild mosh with their latest smash single ‘Chaos’. The California rap/rockers kept the bangers coming with ‘California Dreaming’, ‘Riot’ and ‘Comin’ In Hot’ which featured a fan, selected at random, from the audience on guitar.
