Taking Back Sunday reschedule NJ shows and add Sandy benefit in NYC to ‘Tell All Your Friends’ tour (updated dates)
As mentioned, Taking Back Sunday are taking their debut album, Tell All Your Friends, on tour this year for its 10th anniversary that kicked off in early October and it comes to NYC/NJ this month. The band posted an update to their website saying they’d like to help out with the areas most affected by Hurricane Sandy. So in addition to their two sold out Terminal 5 shows (11/23 and 11/24), TBS have added another NYC show happening on November 16 at Best Buy Theater with Bayside and The Menzingers, which will be a benefit show with 100% of proceeds going to relief efforts in and around Long Beach, NY where most of the band members are from. Tickets for that show go on sale today (11/12) at noon.
TBS have also “combined” their two sold out Starland Ballroom shows, which would have happened November 16 and 25 but had to be rescheduled due to the damage done to Starland Ballroom, into one larger show happening on November 25 at Pine Belt Arena on the campus of Toms River High School North in Toms River, NJ. This show, like the Best Buy Theater show, is also now a benefit for Hurricane Sandy Relief. Tickets to both shows will be honored and more tickets will be available starting Monday at noon. If you can’t make it to the new date, refunds will be accepted until 10 PM on November 19.
The band also plays a Long Island show at The Paramount on November 21, which is sold out.
