Silverstein celebrate their 20 year anniversary live in Munich at the Backstage

February 16, 2020

The year 2000 didn’t only bring a new millennium, it was also the year the Canadian band Silverstein started their career. Fast forward to 2020, they celebrate their 20 year anniversary. No better way to do that, than tour and celebrate with the people that kept the band alive for two decades – the fans. Three out of the five dates have sold out pretty quick, the other two, Munich upon them, were pretty close to selling out. Judging by how packed the venue was, there couldn’t have been many tickets left for though.   For their European tour, they brought along Hawthorne Heights from Dayton, OH. They’re also around for 15 years by now and played in Germany several times. Naturally, they also drew their share of fans to the show.    Hawthorne Heights released their latest album ‘Lost Frequencies’ last November. Most songs the band played that night have actually been from their 2005 record ‘The Silence In Black And White’, like ‘Life On Stand-By’, ‘Niki FM’, ‘Ohio Is For Lovers’, ‘Silver Bullets’ [Read More]
