All Time Low take to the Apollo stage with an explosive set
Starting the ATL live at the ripe age’s of just fifteen/sixteen the band have built solid foundations on which they have formed great success.
With well-earned recognition for their success, the group has won two AP Awards and two Kerrang Awards, landed the title of “Best Pop Punk Band” at the Top In Rock Awards, and were named “Band of the Year” by Alternative Press Magazine. All Time Low was also recently named one of Tumblr’s most re-blogged bands.
It’s now 2017 and the bands 7th album is due to land and by all accounts their staying firm to their roots and the long term fans will love it!
Opening the night were Waterparks. November 2015, saw the band signed with Equal Vision Records. After searching for producers, the band became managed by Benji Madden and Joel Madden. The group released an EP titled Cluster, which was co-produced by Benji Madden. Waterparks have since performed with the likes of Good Charlotte playing at The Troubadour in West Hollywood, California. They band wasnt my expected choice for this support slot however having siad that, they did bring loads of energy to the stage.
All Time Low take to the stage, the whole of the O2 Apollo becomes electrified. The noise like that of which I’ve never heard before. I’d have loved to have know what DB it reached! With soon soon to be seven albums, ATL are not short on filling set lists and tonight was no exception. The band, known for their loud and lively stage presence still to what they do best and pack out the Manchester Apollo.
Consisting of 17 tracks, tonights setlist went a little like this…
- Kicking & Screaming
- Somewhere in Neverland
- Six Feet Under the Stars
- Cinderblock Garden
- Something’s Gotta Give
- Kids in the Dark

The band, known for their loud and lively stage presence still to what they do best and pack out the Manchester Apollo. Gaskarth and the rest of the band have a fantastic rapport with their l fans is very much evident,
Closing the 17 track setlist with ‘Dear Maria, Count Me In’ was a huge fan highlight however new tracks such as ‘Dirty Laundry’ already has fans catching and at the same time showing fans what is in store for the next record.
As with most bands that start our young, its inevitable their sound matures just as much as they do themselves. There is no reason why ‘Last Young Renegade’ shouldn’t continue the theme and their long term fans will keep with them even longer.
