Taking Back Sunday adds dates to 20th anniversary tour

Throughout 2019, Taking Back Sunday is celebrating their 20th anniversary with a year-long celebration, including an extensive worldwide tour, paying tribute to their catalog – and their fans – with full album performances, plus a 21-song career-spanning compilation (featuring two new songs), titled Twenty, available now on Craft Recordings.

Now the rock band from Long Island announced the second leg of their U.S. tour, kicking off this September in Kansas City, MO. The first leg of the North American tour begins in Houston next month. A full list of dates is available below for both legs of the North American tour. For tickets and VIP packages,

At all shows, Taking Back Sunday – vocalist Adam Lazzara, guitarist John Nolan, drummer Mark O'Connell and bassist Shaun Cooper – will be performing their debut album Tell All Your Friends in its entirety.

For tour stops where the band are performing over two nights, each nightly set will offer a double-album play – using a specially designed coin, Taking Back Sunday will flip to play either their Where You Want To Be or Louder Now, in addition to Tell All Your Friends.

In headline cities where they are playing only one night, they’ll perform Tell All Your Friends, plus a selection of fan favorites from their extensive catalog. Click here to watch a video of Adam elaborating on the coin toss concept, when the tour was first announced in 2018.

Celebrating not only their career-defining moments but also landmark albums that chronicle the band's story, Twenty includes 19 catalog tracks from all seven of their full-length albums, plus two new studio recordings (single "All Ready To Go" and "A Song For Dan"), which hint at the direction the band is heading in.

Recently, Taking Back Sunday premiered the debut episode from their eight-part "album-by-album" series, featuring the band looking back on one album from their discography in each episode. Click here to watch the first episode featuring the guys share insight on the making of their new compilation and how they're feeling about the band’s 20th anniversary.
