When the tour was first announced it seemed a bit strange, Yellowcard and Memphis May Fire touring together; the two are quiet different as far as genre and fanbases go. Both do have great stage presence and put on fantastic sets but still, that does not usually make a tour package. The opener, Emarosa, could fit on a tour package with either band sound wise and certainly holds their own with stage presence and the ability to command a stage and crowd. When the tour came to Starland Ballroom in Sayerville, NJ on Halloween it became clear to fans of all three groups that the tour package was certainly a fantastic idea and a very successful show.
