Taking Back Sunday at Terminal 5 - 11/24/12
Taking Back Sunday

Taking Back Sunday have been celebrating the tenth anniversary of their debut album, Tell All Your Friends, with the lineup that recorded the album, on tour. After some rescheduling, they came to NYC, Long Island, and NJ for shows at Best Buy Theater (11/16), The Paramount (11/21), Terminal 5 (11/23-24), and Pine Belt Arena (11/25). We caught the 11/24 show at Terminal 5 and pictures from that show are in this post.

As I mentioned over the summer, Tell All Your Friends was a pivotal album for many teenagers at the time of its release and while a significant amount have grown up and began seeking other things in music, TAYF still holds a place in the hearts of many and that was abundantly clear at the Terminal 5 shows, where a song wasn't played without the crowd singing along word for word. And as Brittany Spanos for The Village Voice points out, those aged teenagers "were standing by the sides of a new set of kids with the same problems they had 10 years ago like a cyclical, ageless Breakfast Club of sorts."

Before playing Tell All Your Friends in its entirety, the band played a set of material that they recorded after the departure of John Nolan and Shaun Cooper, plus the two opening tracks on their self titled 2011 reunion album. During "Bike Scene," they brought out John's sister Michelle, who sang on the album recording of that track and was also a member of Straylight Run. After playing the album, they stuck around for two more songs, including TAYF-era b-side, "The Ballad of Sal Villanueva." More pics (including openers Gabriel the Marine and Bayside), the setlist, and some videos from the Terminal 5 show, below.

"During "Bike Scene," they brought out John's sister Michelle, who sang on the album recording of that track and was also a member of Straylight Run."

Wasn't she the lead singer's girlfriend, and then when they broke up her brother left the band?

I can't believe I'm 27 and seriously am about to cry I wasn't there... this band was my high school early college soundtrack and I'm seriosuly bummed I wasn't there especially Battle of Sal Villanueva which they said they'd never sing :O(

I'll allow myself another 5min of sadness then will move on..

The lighting seemed like it was designed to hide the band's faces...high intensity stage lighting pointed towards the crowd, with absolutely no spotlights on the band members to illuminate their faces. It was different from Bayside's lighting, and they specifically disallowed flash photography, which would have allowed for some fill.

That being said, I shot a gallery for QROmag.com that has some photos that better illuminate their faces, but it was not easy.
