Thrice returned to the Tampa region to deliver a short, yet blistering set to a crowd of enthused fans. They’re on tour providing direct support for the Deftones & Rise Against, however, there was Thrice gave both bands a run for their money. They opened their set with the track “Hurricane” from their latest album To Be Everywhere Is to Be Nowhere which has a band returning to their heavy rock roots.
Founder, guitarist, and lead singer Dustin Kensrue’s vocals were powerful and demanding of the crowds attention. They reacted singing in unison with Dustin and displaying their devil horns. They continued to rip through new material mixed with some deeper cuts and fan favorites from previous albums like The Artist in the Ambulance, Vheissu, and Major/Minor. Even though Thrice did go on hiatus, it was evident the fans hadn’t lost their passion & dedication for the band especially when the song “Black Honey” was performed.
Thrice proved that they can play not only in sweaty sold out clubs, but also large amphitheaters while the sun is still shining. They continue to tour with the Deftones and Rise Against into July with no additional dates listed at this time. Hopefully, this means they’re gearing up for a headlining tour where they can dive into more tracks and a longer set.
Here’s the Setlist from Tampa on June 22nd, 2017:
Of Dust and Nations
The Long Defeat
The Earth Will Shake
