Just a day removed from the release of their self-titled 5th studio album, Virginia-natives Parachute brought their headlining tour to the historic Turner Hall Ballroom in Milwaukee, WI to the delight of their Wisconsin fans.
Led by singer Will Anderson, the platinum selling band’s tour (dubbed “The Young Tour”) is named after their new album’s lead single, and rightfully kicked off the band’s set on Saturday evening. From start to finish the band opened and closed with cuts from the brand new LP, while still dedicating much of their setlist to the band’s first four albums. Tracks like ‘Lonely With Me’, ‘Can’t Help’ and ‘Jennie’ were just a few of many songs from Parachute’s past few records that made the cut for a setlist that was specially curated for the Milwaukee stop of the tour.
With a perfect mix of energetic tracks and slower jams, Will, Johnny and Kit partied with the Milwaukee crowd for about an hour and a half until their performance of ‘Had It All’, another single from the new album.

The Will Anderson-led pop rock band, Parachute, are returning in the new year with new music and a massive 2019 tour. Dubbed “The Young Tour”, after Parachute’s forthcoming single ‘Young’, currently scheduled for a Friday, January 18th release, you can likely expect the band to perform tracks from their next studio album, which will be their first since 2016’s Wide Awake.
Kicking off on April 26th at The Social in Orlando, Parachute will make stops in Chicago, Milwaukee, Boston, Nashville, Philadelphia and more, until the tour comes to an end on June 30th in Indianapolis. Fans can get tickets and more information at Parachute’s official website.

Moments ago, Virginia pop-rock band Parachute brought “The Wide Awake Tour” to Milwaukee’s Turner Hall Ballroom. Performing in support of their new and similarly titled LP, Wide Awake, the Will Anderson-led group performed the majority of their new album, which released just last March, as well as a collection of fan favorites from their first three albums. Parachute didn’t travel alone either, as Atlanta singer/songwriter Brynn Elliott and ‘Runaway’ singer Jerad Finck supported Parachute in Wisconsin tonight.
To say that Parachute’s headlining set tonight was a collection of fan favorites is a bit of an understatement, as fans played a direct role in choosing the setlist for Parachute’s current tour. Earlier this year fans had the opportunity to vote on The Wide Awake Tour’s setlist, and the results showed tonight as fans sang along, word-for-word throughout the band’s entire set. Opening their performance tonight though, Parachute started off their set with Wide Awake‘s opening track, ‘Without You’, a catchy and upbeat record that certainly set the tone for the rest of the night.
Throughout the night, the band’s chemistry and Anderson’s relationship with the audience stole the show. Not one specific song stood out as a highlight of the night, as the energy from their performance stayed at consistently high levels and never began to decline. From start to finish, Parachute gave a memorable and intimate performance for their biggest Wisconsin fans. While Parachute’s July 19, 2016 performance at the Turner Hall Ballroom won’t necessarily go in the books as a historic Milwaukee performance, anyone in attendance can definitely assure you that Parachute put on one hell of a show tonight, that their fans will not soon forget.
