Rock giants Deftones and Rise Against are in the midst of a huge month-long co-headlining tour of North America, which kicked off last week in Chicago with help from trek direct support act, Cali’s Thrice. The journey made its way to New York earlier this week for an immense showing at the Jones Beach Theater in Long Island on June 13.
Fans piled into the humongous outdoor venue to witness Deftones perform classic hits, one after another, gushing forth mega favorites such as “Headup,” “My Own Summer (Shove It),” “Lhabia” and “Be Quiet and Drive (Far Away)” off of 1997’s Around the Fur, plus a ton of tracks from 2000’s amazing White Pony LP, including “Digital Bath,” “Back to School (Mini Maggit),” “Elite” and more. The band also peppered their setlist with a few tracks from 2010’s Diamond Eyes, 2012’s Koi No Yokan and one song off of their latest release on Reprise Records, Gore.
Rise Against came out with a bang, focusing not only on their must hear favorites but also a trio of tunes from their brand spankin’ new full-length on Virgin Records, Wolves. Leadman Tim McIlrath got up close and personal with fans, and at one point dished out a solo rendition of “People Live Here” from 2014’s The Black Market. Thrice warmed up the audience in the sun with tracks from their latest effort, To Be Everywhere Is to Be Nowhere, plus more from their renowned back catalog. We unfortunately missed openers, London’s Three Trapped Tigers, who were personally invited by Deftones to open the first leg of the ongoing North American tour.
