If you’re a pop punk aficionado, you’ve probably heard a lot of buzz about Waterparks. The band has been getting a lot of attention lately, especially after their latest release, Double Dare. Their most recent endeavor was teaming up with Too Close to Touch to travel across America on their first co-headlining tour–with a majority of the dates being sold out. On the Minnesota date of the tour, Too Close to Touch was up first.
For the enjoyment of their fans, Too Close to Touch made the bold decision to make themselves extremely vulnerable for their last song, Eiley. The singer, Keaton Pierce, has been known to say he would never play the song live because of the emotions tied to it. This beautiful song about his baby sister made an appearance on the set list of every show on the tour. The decision to perform this song live brought the band even closer to their fans.
This closeness and intimacy between band and fans continued throughout the rest of the show. While Too Close to Touch’s relationship to the crowd was more emotional, Waterparks kept their fans intrigued with their outgoing personalities. In between each song, the dudes in Waterparks stopped to talk to the crowd. They were given gifts ranging from bras to roses. It was obvious they were overwhelmed with all of the attention, but they didn’t let that hinder their performance. Although their fan base is growing quickly, they didn’t seem to have any problem staying humble. This was apparent because of their laid-back stage presence and willingness to meet fans.
