Taking Back Sunday Celebrates 20th Anniversary with Two New York Dates

BY LEXI LANE

Long Island’s own pop-punk legendary group Taking Back Sunday kicked off the second U.S. leg of their 20th anniversary tour in September. Yet, with two nights at New York City’s Terminal 5 in November, where they’re ending their North American run is where you want to be.

The group announced the tour adjacent to their greatest hits album Twenty that was released earlier this year. The album features songs that span across several records in their discography. 

As TBS fans know, it’s three quintessential albums that are the most relevant in connection to this tour: Tell All Your Friends, Louder Now, and Where You Want To Be. When Taking Back Sunday returns to New York on November 15 and 16, they’ll be playing their 2002 debut TAYF in full both nights. Not only was the album successful for sales and chart-topping, it’s also remained an influential release on the pop-punk scene with iconic songs like “Cute Without the ‘E’ (Cut from the Team)” and “You’re So Last Summer.”

The sets won’t just end there either night. On their first night at Terminal 5, the band will be flipping a coin and depending on where it lands, (Louder Now or Where You Want To Be) one album will be played the first night, and the other coin side on night two. Plus, whatever other songs that vocalist Adam Lazzara, guitarist John Nolan, bassist Shaun Cooper and drummer Mark O’Connell decide to include.

The first night on November 15 is currently sold out on Ticketmaster, yet there are still some available on resale sites, as well as official tickets for November 16. However, no matter what gets played or what night you go, it all is bound to be incredible. So, whether you want to relive your emo glory days or if you’re still living them, you better make damn sure you’re at Terminal 5 because you won’t want to miss these shows!
