Rock group Yellowcard will perform in the Kellogg Gym on Wednesday, April 19, at 7 p.m. as part of the 2006 Virgin College Mega Tour. Following the double-platinum success of Ocean Avenue, Yellowcard will be supporting its Lights and Sounds album, which was released in January.
Lights and Sounds explores the highs and lows that can follow the fast track to success, something the band has experienced first hand after their singles Ocean Avenue, Way Away and Only One were hits on MTV and Top 40 radio throughout 2004. In addition, the band won the MTV 2 Award at the 2004 Video Music Awards. Yellowcard is vocalist/guitarist Ryan Key, vocalist/violinist Sean Mackin, guitarist Ryan Mendez, drummer Longineu Parsons and bassist Pete Mosely.
Rock quintet Mae will support Yellowcard on the main stage, playing songs from their sophomore effort The Everglow.
The Virgin College Mega Tour will also feature a daytime “village” on campuses that includes an Emerging Artist stage, karaoke booth, games, prizes and demonstrations of the latest and greatest gadgets for the college students.
The concert is being presented by Goldenvoice and Cal Poly Pomona's Associated Students Inc.
