Last Thursday, Paradise Fears played at the Firebird in St. Louis, MO as the second-to-last show on their Live Forever headlining tour. Known for their passionate live sets, the band exceeded expectations as they played a varied setlist from their repertoire, which included covers of “Ignition (Remix)” and “Same Love,” for which they brought out opener William Beckett to sing the chorus. Paradise Fears expertly mixed funny banter between songs, that guided the crowd through their music, with more serious, genuine appreciation toward the audience. By the end of the show, it became extremely apparent why Paradise Fears command such a devoted fan base.
