***THIS SHOW IS SOLD OUT***
Message from Story of the Year
To our most beloved hometown fans:
As a band tours as much as we have, a strange thing happens. You find yourself in this sort of rootless, nomadic existence, and your home becomes a hotel room or a bunk in a tour bus, maybe even a futon in a smelly van. You live out of a suitcase and the high point of the week might be a dressing room that has a shower. In the maelstrom that is touring, there are those certain cities that stand out. For us the highlight of any tour is always the St Louis show. That's when we finally feel like we are home. We look forward to the St Louis date of any tour the way a kid might look forward to Christmas; with anticipation and excitement. There is nothing like a hometown show.
We, the members of Story of the Year, would like to thank the city of St. Louis, MO for over ten years of unwavering love and support. From the amazing folks at 105.7 the Point, to the St Louis Cardinals, to the venues & promoters, to the local bands, to our beautiful fans- we have a fierce loyalty and appreciation for a city that was the first to embrace us and ultimately stick with us through good times and bad. What better way to say THANK YOU than a special blow out show at our favorite venue in the country: THE PAGEANT!
We are going to perform a special, extra long concert, and play every fan favorite from every damn record we've put out. We are going to play songs that we haven't performed in years, or ever. We are going to dance. There will be surprises. People will get pregnant. We are going to play until we throw up. It's going to be a ridiculous good time.
St Louis, let's make this a night to remember. And to our many out of town fans, if you find yourself on a road trip to St Louis on June 8th, know that in our eyes you are family as well.
Endless thanks and love,
Story of the Year.
