Breathless
Hailing from the UK, Asking Alexandria played to a completely enthralled crowd on the main stage at the Cleveland Agora recently. Playing all the fan favorites from their first three albums, the band energetically rocked the stage non-stop from the onset with Welcome and Dear Insanity to The Death of Me to the encore with A Single Moment of Sincerity. Lead Singer Danny Worsnop, Guitarists Ben Bruce and Cameron Liddell, Bassist Sam Bettley, and Drummer James Cassells were fully devoted to their performance by singing, playing, and moving all over the stage. It was insanely cool.

Stand Up and Scream
The music of Asking Alexandria is considered to be metalcore, so the genre might not be for everyone, and not for the faint-hearted rock fan. Nevertheless, the band has a huge following of diehard fans, a small percentage of which were wildly loving the packed Cleveland concert that evening. These hardcore fans were completely engaged in the show… singing, screaming, and crowd surfing throughout the night. For those who are not be familiar with Asking Alexandria, check out Moving On, a good song to ease you into the band’s sound.

Danny Worsnop of Asking Alexandria — Note the bras

Just a Slave to Rock ‘n Roll (via Smiley Faces, Bras, and Cowboy Boots)
In addition to the great music and roaring crowd, there were some fun observations, too, all coincidentally related to clothing:

  • With smiley faces evident on Ben Bruce’s knees (either drawn on or tattooed) through his ripped jeans, we should all be inspired to decorate our knees in a similar fashion. Knees really are under-decorated, after all. Through ripped jeans, therefore, I will draw stars on my knees, doodles, and smiley faces, too. 🙂
  • At least a couple of bras were thrown on stage for Danny Worsnop, a form of fan adoration I had not seen in recent times. Being an infrequent shopper, I would have a tough time parting with any core pieces like this, but thankfully others could participate. Fun stuff.
  • Interestingly, Danny Worsnop wore of set of super cool cowboy boots. You know, cowboy boots add an element of confidence and “badassery” to any outfit. I’m adding a pair to my shopping list for sure.

Reader Takeaway: Sample a couple of tunes above on Amazon if you’re not familiar with the band. For fans, if you like to have a good time, then get to a show!

  1. A lively review of an extremely lively group! I can appreciate the adoring fans and somewhat understand the bra throwers. The music is the kind that would rock the place to the max. As always, the pics were awesome.
