Las Vegas Extreme Thing has grown into a huge musical and sports event over the years, adding additional stages each year and it becomes a big thing for bands to play this event. This Romantic Tragedy is not a stranger to the event, the band members visited the outdoor musical and sport event years before they became a band, and when they became a band they won a contest twice to play the event on the XPOZ local stage before Extreme Thing changed the rules and bands could not play more than two years in a row.
After a year break the band was invited at the last minute to headline the local stage last year, and this year This Romantic Tragedy will open the Main Stage- Lower Field with such bands as The Word Alive, All Shall Perish, Black Dahlia Murder, Of Mice And Men, Alesana and Falling In Reverse. “We are extremely honored to share the stage with these bands, this year’s Extreme Thing will be the best”, said David Diaz.
This Romantic Tragedy will be on a US tour for most of the month of February to promote their CD “Reborn” which debut at #26 on the Heatseekers chart.
