We The Kings are celebrating the 10 year anniversary of their self-titled album with a huge tour with Cute Is What We Aim For. The special anniversary tour stopped at Playstation Theater in NYC over the weekend to a packed house. Travis, Coley, Charles, Danny, and Hunter put on one of the most high energy shows we’ve seen in a while, covering the entire stage and making sure every fan felt the love from the front row all the way to the back of the venue. Throughout the show, the band took time to thank the fans for sticking with the band through thick and thin, and acknowledged that without them, the band wouldn’t be celebrating such a milestone in their band history.
Travis promised to share his favorite memories from the past 10 years on this tour from the making of the first album and he made good on that promise! Throughout the night, he shared anecdotes about the inspiration for some of the album’s tracks. “Stay Young” was a fun song that was inspired by a food fight backstage in the Green Room while the band were warming up for a show.
One of the highlights of their set was their choreographed dance with the entire audience during “I Feel Alive.” Travis encourages the audience to get into the lowest “sorority squat” that they can and then jump up and down like a wacky waving inflatable arm flailing man during the chorus and just feel…well, alive!
WTK started AND ended the show with their hit “Check Yes Juliet.” Yes, that’s right. It’s so good that they played it twice in the same show. They know what the people want and the crowd went insane both times they played it.
Lead singer Travis Clark made sure to take a second to soak in the huge crowd and thank all of the fans who have stuck by WTK for the last 10 years by saying “thank you” about 10 languages.
Openers Plaid Brixx and Astro Lasso are two promising newcomers that really came out guns blazing to win over the NYC crowd! We hope to see more from both bands in the near future.
Cute Is What We Aim For got the crowd on their feet and played all of their throwback hits like “The Curse Of Curves,” “Practice Makes Perfect,” and “Risque.” Singer Shaant Hacikyan reflected on his bands own 10 year tour for their debut album that took place late last year and how grateful he was for the opportunity to join another special 10 year tour.
