MYXclusive: YELLOWCARD Bids Goodbye To Filipino Fans!
Filipino fans screamed their lungs out for Yellowcard one last time as the American band rocked the whole Skydome for the Manila leg of their Final World Tour!
Yellowcard felt incredibly welcome upon returning to the country. Frontman Ryan Key tweeted that he's stoked to be back and commended the way Filipino promoters take care of international artists.
Few places in the world take better care of artists than the Philippines. Stoked to be back.— Ryan from Yellowcard (@williamryankey) February 9, 2017
According to the pop punk band from Jacksonville, Florida, this Final World Tour was conceptualized so they could give back and express their gratitude to all of their fans. Yellowcard was determined to bring an unforgettable show and that's exactly what they delivered during their jam-packed Manila concert last February 10.
Serving as their opening act was OPM band Gracenote. The MYX Music Awards 2017 Favorite Group nominee hyped everyone up with hits from their second album Transparent and their cover of Paramore's "That's What You Get". It was a dream come true for our homegrown musicians who are longtime Yellowcard fans.
Eunice even got a tap on the back from Ryan Key after their set. He thanked Gracenote for opening for them and exclaimed "That girl can sing!"
Before kicking off their show, Yellowcard encouraged everyone to refrain from using their phones so they can genuinely rock out and enjoy the moment. The band curated an awesome setlist which included fan favorites from their past albums as well as songs from their self-titled "final record" like "Rest in Peace" and "What Appears".
The audience went wild when they played "Way Away", "Sing For Me", "Light Up The Sky", "Cut Me, Mick", "Breathing", "Hang You Up", and "Be The Young".
Of course, the band had a strong finish with "Only One" and "Ocean Avenue"!
"I remember the look in your eyes
When I told you that this was goodbye
You were begging me not tonight
Not here, not now".
Thank you for almost two decades of awesome music, Yellowcard! #RIPYC
