All Time Low finished their UK & Ireland tour with a show at London’s Brixton Academy. After last years arenas this tour got actually quite intimate through their rather small venue choice. Supported by Waterparks and SWMRS the four piece definitley got the fans excited for their upcoming album.
First off Houston based trio Waterparks who already have a solid fanbase in the UK through their support tour with Good Charlotte last year. They started the show with a lot of energy and songs from their new album Double Dare. The setlist also contains the two older songs Crave, most popular song Mad all the time and was completed by new single release Royal.
Second band of the night was the four piece SWMRS. They presented tracks from last years release Drive North like Silver Bullet. Also featured on this record is the song Miley a song about Miley Cyrus which the band performed on the night. The set finished with track Figuring it out.
All Time Low started their set with Kicking & Screaming followed by the older tracks Weightless and Somewhere in Neverland which already showed that the setlist contained a really good mix of old and new songs on this tour. At this show the band performed their latest single release Last Young Renegade for the very first time live and singer Alex already said beforehand that he was really looking forward to it. Following this surprise the setlist went on with tracks from the latest album Future Hearts as well as Dirty Laundry.
The show then went on to a more emotional acoustic part, when the band left singer Alex alone on stage to perform Therapy. This was followed by the track Missing You a song dedicated to fight any form of addiction and the band rejoined to play a cover track of Lorde’s Green Light which they performed the day before at the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge. To add this cover as well as the new single to the setlist, All Time Low cut off Six feet under the stars as well as Canals compared to the rest of the tour. But going along with the new album and new sound the band got in general rid of some classic tracks which they seemed to have on their shows forever like Stella or Time Bomb.
Coming to the last part of the show, the four piece played Take Cover, a song from their Live DVD before hitting the three track Encore. Added to the finale was Jasey Rae, a song that had been requested by fans at a lot of shows. Final track is Dear Maria, count me in and will always be the last song of an All Time Low show. During this track Jack and Alex threw their guitars through the air before they went up close with the fans including a blast of confetti.
Awesome show, great song choice and filled with banter and jokes.
