Asking Alexandria, Motionless in White, Upon a Burning Body, and Crown The Empire Concert Photos and Videos
The photos from this show on Thursday, August 8, 2013 in Bloomington, Illinois at the historic Castle Theatre. I highly recommend seeing any of these bands, Crown The Empire, Upon a Burning Body, Motionless in White and Asking Alexandria know how to put on a phenomenal show. Every act had extremely high energy. Each band member was incredibly nice. The size of the venue also made this particular concert an ultimate fan experience as it was the smallest venue of the tour. Fans had opportunity to touch, smell and interact with the bands and band members. All of the photos of this show are taken from a fan perspective. If you were at the show, scroll down and you may find yourself.
The night started with Crown The Empire and they were incredible. The band members were extremely nice. The band crowded around this minuscule merch table and talked with fans and posed for pictures for hours. Crown The Empire is going to be the biggest band to come out of this tour.

The next band was Upon a Burning Body. Their energy and fan interaction was incredible. Their image is deceiving because they are dressed in suits but then rock out the entire time. Danny Leal, the singer, started out in three-piece suit. As their set continued, he kept losing pieces of his suit until he was shirtless.

Motionless in White came to the stage next and they made the entire pit go crazy. They are a great band live and had a great performance. Motionless in White has the most interesting music videos. They are dark, contemplative, and intelligent.

Finally, the main event was Asking Alexandria and they delivered a fantastic performance. James Cassells is a phenomenal drummer. Danny interacted with the crowd by talking to them and taking time to even hug an excited fan. They put on a stellar show.
