Of Mice & Men brought their Full Circle tour to the Palladium in Worcester, MA on Tuesday night and delivered an unparalleled night of mayhem to the sold out crowd. Prior to venue doors opening, the line to get in stretched an entire block down around the corner from the venue. Fans rushed for the barrier upon entering and by the time the show began the Worcester venue was full to capacity.
Blistering opening sets from Volumes and Crown the Empire wet the appetites of the metal hungry crowd, as the mosh pits were moving even before the first band took the stage. Of Mice & Men took the stage promptly at 9:30 pm, opening with “Public Service Announcement” from their most recent release Restoring Force. All total the band would play 11 tracks from the album, two of which coming from the “Full Circle” re-release edition, “Broken Generation” and “Never Giving Up.”
The band also took fans back playing songs from their first two albums “Of Mice & Men” and “The Flood” respectively. During the two song encore, while performing “The Depths” frontman Austin Carlile instructed the audience to crouch to the floor and then jump up when the song kick in. The Worcester crowd indulged emphatically. All night the crowd was in full throat, wreaking havoc on the venue floor. Of Mice & Men’s Full Circle tour is one not to miss if you’re looking for a night of loud, fast paced, heart pounding metal. The tour continues through June 7th in San Diego, CA.
