American rock band Black Veil Brides performed a sold-out show on their headline tour of Australia at The Croxton in Melbourne on Sunday 3 July 2022. Formed in Hollywood during 2006 by lead vocalist Andy Biersack, it’s the band’s first shows down under in eight years.
Joining Biersack in the band was Jeremy “Jinxx” Ferguson on rhythm guitar, Jake Pitts on lead guitar, Christian “CC” Coma on drums, and Lonny Eagleton on bass. They performed a dozen songs in an hour, spanning their first single “Knives and Pens” through to “Crimson Skies” from last year’s album The Phantom Tomorrow. Their encore song was “In the End” that has now racked up almost 140 million plays on Spotify alone.
