Detroit, Michigan (November 9, 2018) – 15 Years ago, Silverstein’s album “When Broken Is Easily Fixed” was released. Little did they know, how much of an impact that album would have. Bringing along Hawthorne Heights, As Cities Burn and Capstan, the first night of their 15 year anniversary tour was a sold-out show at the Majestic Theatre in Detroit, MI.
Capstan got the first night of the tour started. An up and coming band played their set featuring the songs “Wax Poetic,” “Precariat” and “The Wreath and the Follower,” Capstan no doubt got their fans ready for the night while gaining new fans as well.
Shortly after Capstan warmed the sold out crowd up, As Cities Burn made sure the energy stayed in the theatre. Their set included a few new songs including their newly released single “2020 AD.”
Hawthorne Heights took the stage next in what was a little bit of a bittersweet reunion. The last show they had played at the Majestic was also the last show their former guitar player Casey Calvert performed as he had passed away the day after their Detroit show in 2007. For this show, they focused on their classics playing “Niki FM,” “Saying Sorry” and of course, “Ohio Is For Lovers”
Finally, the band of the night, Silverstein. They came out to probably one of the loudest crowds that the Majestic has ever had. After Silverstein played their first album “When Broken Is Easily Fixed” in it’s entirety, they came back out and played an extended set of hits including “Smile In Your Sleep,” “Massachusetts,” and for the first time live, “California”

It was a night full of memories and nostalgia as both the fans and the bands that played escaped to a simpler time years ago. Silverstein may still tour frequently, but no one wanted to miss this chance to sing these songs from an iconic album that was released 15 years ago. After a 22-song set, the night was over and it will be hard for other cities to top the party that happened here in Detroit.
