A line started forming outside the House of Blues in Chicago on August 13th several hours before the show for Break Down The Walls Tour’s headliner Asking Alexandria’s rescheduled show. The band had previously only played an acoustic set at the Chicago date of their headlining tour this spring because of technical issues, and fans were left wanting more. This show was exclusive to ticket holders from the rescheduled show, and they were evidently excited to see their favorite band perform. As soon as doors opened, people rushed up the stairs to the GA floor and to the barricade as fast as they could.
Opening up for Asking Alexandria were locals Daylight Dawns and El Famous, both of which garnered a great response from the crowd, who was now eager to see the headliner finally perform. The four month long wait was well worth it, as Asking Alexandria took the stage and captured the attention of the crowd in full force immediately and gave a powerful performance.
