Although their sobriety was questionable, Asking Alexandria gripped their high energy audience from the beginning of their Warped Tour performance in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  Their viscous crowd held no benevolence for one another as they smashed their way to the front rows and attempted to start their pits during any breakdown. This was only egged on by lead singer Danny Warsnop who told them that every other memeber of the crowd was their enemy and they were to show no mercy. This lead to more crowd surfing and brutality from spectators who were already rowdy.

They chanted along, with intensity, to songs such as , “Not The American Average”, and “I Was Once, Possibly,Maybe A Cowboy King”, and “The Final Episode” off the album Stand Up And Scream, and “Breathless”, To the Stage”, and “A Lesson Never Learned” from their newest album Reckless And Relentless (released April 2011).  In general there was never a calm moment during AA’s powerful show.

They finished their show with one of their biggest hits, pre-released single, Morte et Dabo. It was the song their audience had been anticipating for the entire show, which was made obvious by their instant reaction to the intro. Energy from both the band and crowd members peaked during that  song. The band excited with a successful performance under their belt and their audience begging for more from the controversial, yet appreciated UK band.
