[GALLERY] Taking Back Sunday: 20th Anniversary Celebration Tour – San Diego – California

WWe should consider ourselves lucky to live in the last couple of years. We are finding more and more of our favorite bands re-visiting early work and celebrating the journey they’ve taken as musicians and the journey their fans have taken with their music. Taking Back Sunday is taking it one step further. The Long Island natives have been and will continue to travel the globe for all of 2019. The group is performing their debut album Tell All Your Friends in its entirety along with fan favorites. If you’re lucky and TBS is stopping by your town for two nights, the group will flip a special 20th anniversary coin to play either Where You Want To Be or Louder Now, in addition to Tell All Your Friends. Additionally, early this year, the group released Twenty, which is a collection of songs from all seven of their full-length albums, plus two new tracks that look forward to the band’s new era: “All Ready To Go” and “A Song For Dan.” While these shows commemorate the influential powerhouse Taking Back Sunday has become over their career, the 20th anniversary not only re-visits the beginning, but points to the future of the group.

Recovery Magazine caught the group at their second (sold out) San Diego date of the tour where fans were treated to both Tell All Your Friends and Where You Want To Be. Fans had the nostalgic freedom to relive moments they had with the band when these songs were first released, and the atmosphere was infectious as the crowd sang and jumped along with each track. It was felt in the air just how special the night was. The band, reeling in the excitement from Night 1 (also sold out) in San Diego, kept the energy high for Night 2. It was also a treat in that the group had several story-telling moments throughout the night, going over the history of certain tracks. From the opening note of “You Know How I Do” working through the whopping 25-song-setlist, fans were given something truly special.
