We Came As Romans will host a memorial concert for its late singer Kyle Pavone on Oct. 28 at the Fillmore Detroit in the group's home town.
The group announced the Promise Me Tribute, a fundraiser for the newly established Kyle Pavone Foundation, during its performance Sunday night at the same venue, opening for Bullet For My Valentine. It was the band's first home town show since Pavone's death on Aug. 25 at the age of 28, from a drug overdose. In addition to WCAR, frontman Dave Stephens, who sported a Promise Me T-shirt, announced "a whole bunch of guest vocalists, guest musicians, tons of DJS. It's just gonna be a big party celebrating all the awesome things Kyle did in his life."
The mission of the foundation, established by Pavone's family, is "a promise to serve and advocate for the musician community in their time of greatest need, providing hope and a means to carry on."
