Asking Alexandria Brought All Their Friends to Buckhead Theatre in Atlanta

Date:

On April 17, 2024, Asking Alexandria brought their All My Friends tour to the iconic Buckhead Theatre in Atlanta, Georgia. The tour, a dream come true for metalcore fans, featured Asking Alexandria along with Memphis May Fire, The Word Alive, and NERV—four major names in the genre. The Buckhead Theatre was packed from front to back with an enthusiastic crowd ready to embrace the night’s intense performances.

Opening the night was California-based quartet NERV, whose mix of metalcore and melodic pop set the stage for a memorable evening. Fronted by Dillon Jones, the band delivered a high-energy, adrenaline-fueled set that only grew stronger as their 30-minute performance progressed. NERV’s unique choice of forgoing a bassist in favor of two guitarists provided a refreshing take on the standard band setup. They are definitely a band to watch, as they captivated the crowd with their innovative sound and dynamic stage presence.

Next up was The Word Alive, a longstanding staple in the metalcore genre. They wasted no time energizing the audience with a set full of screams and breakdowns that sent the crowd into a frenzy. The Arizona quartet’s powerful sound engulfed the venue, elevating the experience for everyone present. Lead singer Tyler Smith led the crowd in a shared moment of enthusiasm, with heads banging, fists pumping, and voices raised in unison.

Memphis May Fire took the stage next, igniting the excitement even further. During their track “Left For Dead,” the first crowd surfer of the night appeared, setting the tone for the rest of the evening. With heavy breakdowns and a mix of screams and melodic elements, Memphis May Fire delivered an electrifying performance that took the night to another level. They paused briefly for an acoustic rendition of “Miles Away” before diving back into their energetic set with “No Ordinary Love.” The Texas-based band set the stage for an epic conclusion to an already stunning evening.

Asking Alexandria closed the show with a mesmerizing performance. The powerful vocals of Danny Worsnop echoed throughout the Buckhead Theatre as fans took to crowd surfing, keeping the security busy. The band’s setlist captivated the audience from start to finish and included a cover of The Backstreet Boys’ “I Want It That Way,” which had the entire crowd singing along. This was followed by an acoustic cover of “Someone, Somewhere,” and then the band returned to their signature metalcore breakdowns. Asking Alexandria showcased their enduring prowess on stage, backed by a passionate fanbase.

The All My Friends tour is a must-see event for metalcore fans, offering an outstanding lineup that evokes nostalgia for the days of the Warped Tour. It demonstrates why Asking Alexandria and their peers remain staples in the genre more than a decade later.
