Hailing from across the pond, British rockers You Me At Six brought their North American headliner into Canada for just one night only. With them, they brought Dinosaur Pile Up, Conditions & Tonight Alive along for the ride as they played to a sold out show at the Opera House.
All three openers did a great job getting the crowd warmed up for You Me At Six, and you could feel the crowd itching with anticipation as they waited for the band to hit the stage. When 9pm rolled around, You Me At Six finally hit the stage and all hell broke loose as fans tried to push their way closer to the band. They opened up with ‘Reckless’ and ‘Loverboy’, which comes off of their latest album ‘Sinners Never Sleep’. Although their set mainly consisted of newer songs, they didn’t forget to play some of their older fan favourites such as ‘Liquid Confidence’ and ‘Take Off Your Colours’. As the night progressed, lead singer Josh Franceschi, mentioned how it was nice to be back in Toronto as they haven’t been back since Warped Tour 2012. Given the crowd that night, you could easily tell that Toronto missed YMAS as well. There was a constant flow of crowd surfers, stage divers and circle pits going on throughout the night. So much so that security had to come on stage and try to remove the stage divers before they had the chance to jump off of the stage. As the night came to a close, the band ended their set with ‘Underdog’ and Josh asked the crowd to move in closer so that they could catch him as he dove off of the stage and into the crowd.
