After touring the USA together last year, You Me At Six and All Time Low decided to tour the UK with a double headline tour – a decision that has seen sold out arenas across the country. including London’s O2.
All Time Low
All Time Low were the first of the two bands to hit the stage – and this they did this in their own inimitable highly charged and energetic style. They played a host of their hugely popular songs including Weightless and Lost In Stereo and Stella.
The crowd, as well as being treated to the usual party antics of the boys, including the ritual collecting of ’gifted’ underwear to decorate the mic stands with, were treated to the live debut of Something’s Gotta Give, led by Jack Bakarat.
Alex Gaskarth treated the audience to a solo performance of Therapy with the audience all holding up mobile phones to light the arena. and the request for fans to join the lads on stage was met with great enthusiasm for a lively performance of Time Bomb.
The hi-octane performance from this ever popular and fun loving US band culminated with Alex and Jack jumping into the crowd and whilst managing to survive the clamouring fans they finished the show with Dear Maria, Count Me In

You Me At Six
You Me At Six, lead by a hobbling singer Josh Franchesci who was suffering from a broken ankle, opened their set with their 2014 hit Room To Breathe from the album Cavalier Youth.
The ubiquitous rendition of Loverboy was met with great enthusiasm with the whole auditorium singing along, shortly followed by Underdog – undoubtedly one of their most popular songs.
This set the scene for an incredible evening and crowd continued to display their word perfect vocal support during Reckless – a fantastic performance that lifted the roof, swiftly followed by Crash.
You Me At Six were on top form throughout and the ever popular Bite Your Tongue kept the fans on their feet – Josh Franceschi singing with a confidence and authority rarely before seen.
The musical talents of the whole band were incredible and together with the superb vocals added up to a fantastic night’s entertainment – the ardent fans could not have asked for more!
