PVRIS Delights The Pop-Punk Crowd Supporting Fall Out Boy

PVRIS are on a roll. Fresh off the back of their own North American headline tour, following the release of fourth LP Evergreen and touring as a main act on this past summer’s Sad Summer Fest, the Lynn Gunn-led troupe moved onto larger arenas supporting pop-punk stalwarts Fall Out Boy’s latest European tour. And Rockshot Magazine went down to check the show out at London’s O2 Arena. Check out our review of Fall Out Boy’s headline set here.

Following a rousing set from Foxborough, Massachusetts-hailing Emo rapper Joseph Edward Mulherin (AKA Nothing, Nowhere), Lynn Gunn, Brian MacDonald and current touring drummer Denny Agosto took the lowly-lit stage for a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it 13-song set, leaning heavily on latest LP Evergreen but making sure to hit the spot with fans by touching on debut LP White Noise and third record Use Me as well as pulling in non-album single Monster.

The bespectacled Gunn’s intent was set from opening tune I Don’t Wanna Do This Anymore, sparse instrumentation from storming beats and synths underpinning her delicate to growling vocals, the crowd encouraged to sway along from the outset. Dead Weight from 2020 LP Use Me has Gunn strapping on a guitar to add yet more depth to the group’s is it electro-pop? is it synth-rock? sound. Check out PVRIS’ full setlist from the night below:

Rockshot Magazine also went down to check out PVRIS’ headline show at London’s Hammersmith Apollo back in February. Read just how far this sound is elevated by both a full set and a dedicated fanbase here.
