Yellowcard rocked The Skyline Stage at The Mann in Philadelphia – Words and Photos by Jen Green

Yellowcard made a grand and unforgettable comeback at the Skyline Stage at the Mann in Philadelphia. The atmosphere was electrifying as fans eagerly anticipated the 20th Anniversary celebration of their iconic album, Ocean Avenue. With a record-breaking attendance of over six thousand fans, it was clear that Yellowcard’s reunion was highly anticipated by their dedicated following. This is the biggest show the band has ever played in Philadelphia.

“Thank you for supporting us for the tour that none of us ever thought would happen. 2016 ended Yellowcard and it was very final and none of us ever thought we’d be playing music again, much less in front of six thousand people in Philly. Thank you all so much for being here tonight,” says Ryan Key.

Taking the stage on the fifth night of their tour, Yellowcard demonstrated a remarkable cohesiveness that can only come from years of playing together. From the first note, it was evident that they had honed their craft during their hiatus, returning stronger and better than ever before. The band’s chemistry was palpable as they effortlessly synchronized their playing, showcasing their tight-knit bond as a group.

“Each night has been an out of body experience. It’s been so surreal, how many people have showed up,” said Ryan, “To be back here together on stage and making music again as friends and family. The level of gratitude and positivity. You all brought us back to life.”

The show was not only a celebration of Yellowcard’s reunion but also a commemoration of the birthday of Ocean Avenue. As the album that catapulted them to fame, it holds a special place in the hearts of fans worldwide. Yellowcard recognized this significance and delivered a performance that paid homage to the beloved record.

Supporting artists, EMO Night Brooklyn, This is Wild Life, and Mayday Parade made for an incredible line up for the Warped Tour Era kids to relive some of the happiest memories they made at shows. Mayday Parade’s tight-knit camaraderie, exceptional musicianship, and electrifying stage presence created an unforgettable experience for fans old and new.

As the night drew to a close, the audience was left with a sense of euphoria, grateful for the opportunity to witness Yellowcard‘s triumphant return. It was evident that the band’s hiatus had only fueled their passion for creating music and connecting with their fans. Yellowcard proved that they are back and better than ever, leaving no doubt that they still hold a special place in the hearts of their dedicated fanbase. It’s easy to say that Yellowcard is back and here to stay.
