Currently on tour in celebration of being a band for 20 years, Taking Back Sunday played two sold-out shows at Ace of Spades in Sacramento, California.
Opening up the show was The Maine. They had such fun, contagious energy that it made it super easy to enjoy their set. Lead singer John O’Callaghan also did a great job of interacting with the crowd and getting them to dance along to their songs, hyping them up for the rest of the show.
After a short wait, it was now time for Taking Back Sunday to hit the stage. As soon as they started playing everyone’s energy skyrocketed. Throughout their whole show, everyone was singing along so loud that it was hard to hear lead singer Adam Lazzara singing.
The first portion of the band’s set they played their album Tell All Your Friends. After they finished playing that album in full they flipped a coin and it landed on Where You Want to Be so they played that album next.
At one point during the second half of the set, I noticed even the venue staff was singing along to the music. It was such a positive atmosphere the whole night. It was crazy that the show didn’t feel like a regular concert, it really did feel like a celebration in honor of the band. From start to finish they put on an awesome show that fans will not forget anytime soon.
All in all, it was a great show put on by both bands. Even leaving the venue after the show you could feel the energy buzzing through everyone that came to the show.
