On the 25th of April 2022, Wage War brought the Manic Tour to the Lincoln Theatre along with While She Sleeps, Gideon, and Chamber.
Chamber took the stage first and definitely got the crowd warmed up. They didn’t waste any time while they were on stage. From the first song to the last, they kept it heavy and the crowd ready for the next band to take the stage.
Gideon took the stage soon after and kept the momentum going. Each song played had meaning and they really connected with the crowd. They got the most pit going by their 2nd song and the circle pit was born as well! They kept everybody in attendance moving and singing with them.
Then, after Gideon left the stage, While She Sleeps took the reins and really took it up a notch. They opened up with “Sleeps Society“. Everybody was jumping and singing. Their set included fan favorites like “Anti-Social“, “You Are We”, and “Enlightenment“. They would end their 13-song set with “Systematic“. They’d asked fans to come joined them and crowd-surf from the stage. While She Sleeps did not disappoint!!!
After 3 bands had rocked the faces off of Raleigh, the anticipation for Wage War was on another level. They finished everyone off with their amazing set! From the opener “Release” to the final song, “Circle the Drain“, and the encore “Stitch“, Wage War did not let up. The crowd sang, moshed, cheered, and crowd-surfed the entire show! They left the crowd in attendance at the Lincoln Theater pumped, sweaty, and happy! Every band on this tour gave it they’re all. WHAT A NIGHT!!!!
What a night indeed! Don’t miss the Manic Tour when it hits a city near you!
