Two-time Grammy nominated American alternative-rock quartet, Papa Roach, has established themselves as true trendsetters in rock music since signing with DreamWorks Records in 1999. With over 20 million records sold over the last two decades, Papa Roach continues to be recognized, respected and loved for their mainstream success and what they continue to bring to the table time and time again with each new album release.

Touring in support of their highly-anticipated 10th studio album, “Who Do You Trust?”, the love of all things Papa Roach was apparent as they took the stage as direct supporting act for Shinedown at the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee Friday night. From the first note of nu metal anthem “Last Resort” to the last note of “…To Be Loved”, the band kept the packed house on their feet and energy flowing for their entire, emotionally-charged 14-song set.

With so many hits from previous albums to keep the crowd inspired to rock out, Papa Roach thoroughly impressed the audience when performing tunes from the new 12-track anthemic album including the heavy rhythmic guitars and catchy hooks of “Who Do You Trust?”, “Renegade Music” and melodic “Not The Only One”. Whether you listen to the band live or crank up their studio tracks in the privacy of your own personal space, the melodies are maddening and provoke you to sing-along as if against your own free will.

Sporting a “Can’t Do Epic Shit With Basic People” jacket, frontman Jacoby Shaddix pulled no punches and made it obvious that Papa Roach arrived in Milwaukee with the intent of putting on a spectacular show and leaving concert-goers with a feeling that they were part of something monumental. Mission accomplished Papa Roach! We all feel a little bit cooler for having spent quality time with you.

The Fiserv Forum is a new multi-purpose arena in downtown Milwaukee. The Wisconsin Entertainment and Sports Center is much more than just the new home for the Milwaukee Bucks basketball. Designed to reflect the heritage, history and personality of Milwaukee while actively projecting progress, accessibility and a renewed sense of community, this state of the art, 714,000 square foot arena is the hub of entertainment in Wisconsin and the engine that drives growth in downtown Milwaukee.

Why Fiserv?
At Fiserv, we believe in putting our signature on our work, the mark of our commitment to excellence in everything we do.

The Design
The period – or proof point – that follows ‘Fiserv’ in our wordmark has always embodied our full-hearted commitment to excellence in everything we do. In our visual identity for Fiserv Forum, that point evolves into a connection point. It represents where our brand promise – to be Partners in Possibility – meets our local community, where our legacy of leadership in financial services technology meets our future of bringing our aspiration and purpose to a newly broadened audience. This point connects Fiserv and our clients to all the vibrancy that Fiserv Forum will hold: games, shows, celebrations, family, friends, and fun. Using our brand typeface, our graphic system makes use of its numerous weights, allowing room for expression, play, and a vocal energy that is as diverse as the experiences Fiserv Forum has to offer.

What's in a Name?
The name ‘Fiserv Forum’ is a nod to our annual world-class client experience, where the best and brightest technology and business professionals gather each year to exchange ideas, learn, and experience financial technology. Like our annual client conference, which bears the same name, this new Fiserv brand touchpoint is designed to showcase diverse and unique experiences and perspectives.
