Taking Back Sunday show you what 'Happiness Is' at House of Blues


  • Ryan Russell
Last year, Taking Back Sunday released Happiness Is, seeming to permanently seal the fan-acclaimed decision to return to the band’s original lineup on 2011’s self-titled album by standing the test of time to become a genuine revival. So if you loved 2014’s follow-up, you likely flipped when Happiness Is: The Complete Recordings surfaced last month – a complete box set that includes unreleased B-sides and acoustic tracks and other goodies for the most devoted listeners. Now, Taking Back Sunday rounds Orlando to finish up their headlining tour in Florida, with a show this week at House of Blues, the venue that last year notoriously banned TBS opening act Letlive from playing. [CORRECTION: Disney banned Letlive. Not House of Blues. We regret the error.] This week’s openers are the Menzingers and much-loved local punk band You Blew It! (who wouldn’t hurt a fly), so it should be safe to show up early.
