We Came As Romans play first show since Kyle Pavone’s death

We Came As Romans have paid tribute to their late singer Kyle Pavone at their first show since his death last month.

The singer died due to an accidental overdose in August at the age of 28, with the band subsequently setting up a foundation in his name (opens in new tab).

We Came As Romans issued a statement last week saying that their tour with Bullet For My Valentine would go ahead as planned (opens in new tab) – and their first show took place last night at The Pageant in St Louis.

Introducing the track Lost In The Moment, Dave Stephens told the crowd: “I think it’s what he would have wanted. It’s the best way to honour his legacy.

“One of the things I admired most about him was his ability to not regret his past, not worry about his future and live in the present and enjoy that moment. Because he believed things could change so quickly and those great things could be taken from you in a heartbeat.”

Watch fan-filmed footage below.

The band’s shows will continue tonight (September 19) at The Metroplex in Little Rock.
