Games We Play, aka Emmyn Callerio, is a Miami-born and Los Angeles-based singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer, and self-proclaimed pop-punk provocateur. Games We Play started off their tour with Yungblud in Sterling Heights, MI at the MI Lottery Amphitheatre.While the group noted this was their first amphitheatre they’d played, it definitely won’t be the last. 

With an intense amount of energy and joy, Games We Play took the stage with his bandmates, Kyle Fink (guitar) and Chase Vernon (drums). They truly adopt an “in your face” stage presence, but in all the best ways. Emmyn runs back and forth across the stages and heavily interacts with the crowd while his guitarist, Kyle, shreds out a guitar solo and his drummer, Chase, makes faces at the audience. It was impossible for anyone to ignore this trio and you could see they gained a slew of new fans by the end of their short, yet impactful, opening set. 

Games We Play tours with Yungblud through the end of July, before jumping on tour with Fall Out Boy. They’ve previously shared the stage with iconic pop punk names such as All Time Low, Mayday Parade, Set It Off, and many more. While they’ve already traveled through the U.S. on a headlining tour of their own, opening gigs will soon be a thing of the past for this talented singer-songwriter.
