It seems like just yesterday that rock band Taking Back Sunday burst onto the scene, becoming one of the biggest acts of the early 2000s, but it's been 20 years since they first started making music together. And is there a better way to celebrate a musical anniversary than with a tour?
"It feels strange to say out loud…2019 marks 20 years since I joined Taking Back Sunday and my life changed forever," frontman Adam Lazzara said in a press release. "So, next year we will be traveling the world to celebrate the amazing brotherhood, music and life we have created together over the past 20 years. We hope you can join us for what is sure to be an experience to remember."
The band will head out on a year-long worldwide tour in the spring, including two nights each in San Francisco and Portland. Fans can expect to hear debut album Tell All Your Friends in full, while cities getting treated to back-to-back shows will hear Tell All Your Friends one night, along with other favorites, and either Where You Want to Be or Louder Now the second night. It's a tour longtime fans in particular definitely won't want to miss, and ticket pre-sales begin Tuesday, Oct. 16 at 9 a.m. right here on AXS, with prices starting at $35.
Taking Back Sunday will also release a career retrospective album called Twenty on Jan. 11, including material from all of the band's albums, as well as a few extras
