The Amity Affliction ended their Not Without My Ghosts tour in Orlando, Florida at The Beacham with openers Omerta and Can’t Swim. 

Houston’s Omerta took the stage first and set the vibe of the show with their metal/hardcore sound. They gave us a set that included some of their most popular songs., “Payback,” “I luv u,” “Hyperviolence,” “Benny Boy,” and “Garbage.” Omerta had the crowd moshing in the circle pit by bringing their high energy to the stage. The crowd was still filing in as they took the stage. By the end of their set, the room the packed with people from the barricades to the front of house. They gave a shout-out to Can’t Swim and The Amity Affliction for taking them out on the road. 

New Jersey’s Can’t Swim didn’t disappoint the almost sold-out Orlando crowd with a high-energy 30-minute set. Some fan favorites of the night were “Stranger,” “sometimes you meet the right people at the wrong time,” and another big hit ” Nowhere, Ohio.” The continuous circle pit started right after their first song and stayed strong until the end. Finishing, Chris Loporto gave a shout-out to ending the tour with such great fans and friends along the way. Can’t Swim showed up to perform a final show and went wild on stage to end the tour the right way.

The cheers erupted from the crowd as Australia’s The Amity Affliction took the stage by storm.  Joel Birch (vocalist) gave Orlando nothing but his intense energy. They started their set with the banger “Death’s Hand,” which led to so many other favorites of the night like “All My Friends are Dead,” “Death is All Around,” “Drag The Lake,” and “I See Dead People.”

The Amity Affliction have released an impressive eight albums over the last 20 years, including their recent release, The Not Without My Ghosts album. For the last two decades, The Amity Affliction’s music has been a huge part of the lives of post-hardcore kids who grew up to be post-hardcore music adults. Their impressive discography lets them create a great setlist for older and newer fans. Since it was their last show of the tour, Joel thanked everybody involved in making the tour a success. The encore of the night didn’t disappoint as they ended their set with the hit “soak me in bleach.”

For three hours, fans let loose at The Beacham. On the way out, you could see that the merch tables were wiped out and concert-goers were disappointed it was over so quickly. Next time The Amity Affliction is in your city, you don’t want to miss it.
