All Time Low smashed their short UK leg with arena shows in the major cities for the Young Renegades tour in combination with an anniversary tour for their album ‘So Wrong, It’s Right’.
Support came from UK band Creeper, who already toured with the band last year. Creeper showed off their skills with a six song setlist and had a lot of fans in the crowd. They played hits like ‘Hiding With Boys’ and ‘Down Below’. Final song ‘Misery’ is a personal favourite, while the sound reminds a bit of Mayday Parade. The song starts off slowly for everyone to get their flashlights out but finishes in “Creeper style”.
Next off were All Time Low playing ‘So Wrong, It’s Right’ in its entirety. Introducing themselves as the 10 years younger version of the band and with the album art as stage background. The songs were played in album order with only ‘Dear Maria’ left out to be played at the end of the show. Singer Alex performed ‘Remembering Sunday’ on his own with the band joining him for the end of the song, introducing the song as the first ballad they ever recorded. Followed by ‘Come One, Come All’ which is a song Alex dislikes the most and will due to this probably the only time they have it on the setlist. The first set is finished with ‘Poppin Champagne’ and All Time Low even stuck to the rules of the support band pointing out that they are not allowed to use the catwalk during this set!
For the second part of the show the stage layout included a massive screen at the back of the stage as well as 2 screens hanging on either side. After the smaller shows from last years tour they opted for an arena tour on this run which also influenced the stage layout decision. However, they had some special effects included as well. Besides the confetti canons they had fire and great light effects which all worked out great together.
The set started with a short video themed after the ‘Last Young Renegade’ era of their latest album and the show started with the same named song. The setlist was a great mix of older hits, combined with tracks from the new album including a few songs they didn’t play on the last tour. All Time Low played hits like ‘Weightless’ and ‘Lost In Stereo’ before they left the stage to show another quick video of fans they called for their music video to ’Missing You’ before getting back on stage to perform the song.
Going over into the second half of the set, Alex asked fans to get on the shoulders of their friends just before Jack decided to sit down on the catwalk to start the next song ‘Something’s Gotta Give’. Followed by ‘Life Of The Party’ and ‘Drugs & Candy’ Alex is set to perform an acoustic version of ‘Therapy’ by himself.
With the band back together, they played ‘Afterglow’ from the new album while pyrotechnic came out along the sides of the catwalk creating a great atmosphere. All Time Low then played an encore with three tracks finishing the show with ‘Dear Maria’ while Jack and Alex threw away their guitars before jumping into the crowd and finished the show the usual way.
It was an awesome show with the usual banter and jokes while Jack decided to throw his new trainers into the crowd at some point (and told everyone at the following show in Manchester that his mum told him off for doing that) An All Time Low show packed with two sets boasting an incredible 28 songs in total was guaranteed to bring a lot of fun.
All Time Low support themselves with their anniversary album and amaze fans with a set of 28 songs
