I was just at Yellowcard's Ocean Avenue tour last Sunday. I'm almost 20 and I was surprised to see that 75% of the sold out crowd was older than me. For some reason I went in thinking the crowd would be a lot younger.
I feel like YC's tour was really genuine. They still played an hour of other songs, which most comprised of Southern Weather and WYTTSY. The crowd was stoked on those and the band was so happy about that. I feel like these tours are great for the younger fans who weren't around for the original release an with the old fans. Like Buddy said, they basically grew out of the music, but I think it's possible for these former fans to connect with the newer material as wa evident with Yellowcard.
