Photo Review: You Me At Six Fall Tour 2014

DSC_0143After postponing their tour due to illness, You Me At Six came to the United States with some power behind them. Their 2014 fall tour was a star studded event which also featured bands such as Stars in Stereo and Young Guns. Even after the date change, State Theatre in St Petersburg, Florida was filled with kids, teens and young adults waiting to see a band that rarely plays in the United States, let alone in Florida.

Stars in Stereo started off the night. Even though there were only three bands on this tour it was well worth the show. Stars In StereoFronted by one of the fiercest new vocalists in the scene in Bec Hollcraft, Stars in Stereo showed Florida what they were all about. They played a large array of songs including ones about drinking and having sex which was kind of shocking due to the age of the audience but it was a fun time either way. I would highly recommend checking them out. Their new album Leave Your Mark is a must-listen album.

Following up this high powered female fronted act was a bunch of adorable British men, No… not You Me At Six (yet) but it was their good friends in Young Guns. They brought the heat with their catchy music and their good looks, definitely enough to make some of the girls swoon. They played a bunch of their heavy hitting singles such as “I Want Out” which was probably one of their best songs that they played all night. Very catchy hooks with a Muse kind of feel. The crowd seemed to be enjoying Young Guns especially when most people admitted to never seeing them before.

Now it was finally time. You Me At Six was about to take the stage. The entire crowd smashed up against the stage and packed in as close as they could get. This tour ended up being in support of their new album Cavalier Youth which they played a few songs off of. Sadly though, they didn’t get to play most of their old singles, such as Fireworks or Kiss and Tell.DSC_1141 YMAS did play some of their “older” songs such as “Loverboy” and “Bite My Tongue” (the studio version features Oli Sykes of Bring Me The Horizon). It was wonderful to see these British boys after almost 2 years of absence from Florida. I was fortunate enough to see them on their first U.S. tour in 2009 and it was an honor to see how much they have matured over the past years. This tour really showed me that.
