Twenty years is a long time for a band to be together — and Taking Back Sunday will celebrate 20 years in 2019, which will be an exciting year for fans as the band (finally) announced the second leg of its North American Tour on Tuesday.
The emo music veterans previously announced the first leg of their anniversary tour late last year, later confirming a second leg — but held off on releasing dates until now. The first leg of the tour starts next month with two shows in Houston, TX, and finishes up in May before the band heads off to Latin America. The long-awaited second leg of the tour kicks on September 13 in Kansas City, MO and wraps up at the end of the year with two shows in New York, November 15 and 16.

In addition to the tour, Taking Back Sunday released Twenty, a 21 track compilation album that honors their extensive discography, in January. Twenty featurees 19 songs from the band’s seven studio albums and two new singles, “All Ready To Go” and “A Song For Dan.”
Taking Back Sunday formed back in 1999 in Long Island and and will celebrate their anniversary by performing their debut studio album, Tell All Your Friends, in its entirety. In cities where the band is playing two nights, sets will consist of a double-album play. Taking Back Sunday — Adam Lazzara, John Nolan, Mark O’Connell and Shaun Cooper — will decide via coin toss which second album to play, with Where You Want To Be and Louder Now being the options. For shows in one-city tour stops, the band will perform their debut album along with fan favorites.
Tickets for the second leg will be released Wednesday (2/27) at 12:00pm ET / 9:00am PT for VIP members. General Public can purchase tickets Friday (3/1).
Tickets and VIP packages can be found at the band’s official site.
