“Looks like we will be heading to Manila in April,” a tweet on Taking Back Sunday’s account that added more cacophony to the already pending clamor for the band. Before the unofficial announcement via Twitter, numerous petition and groups were created by fans to make an online rally for the band to consider touring the Southeast particularly the Philippines. Not long after that the band posted in their website an entry confirming the show.
More details about the event resurfaced as of late via the band’s site. Taking Back Sunday is set to perform in Manila on April 13, 2012 in SM North EDSA Skydome in Quezon City.

The Manila gig comes right after a show in Adelaide and reportedly is their only Asian stop for their tour. Let us hope they will carry New Found Glory, The Maine and This Time Next Year to Philippine shore as well. Expect Asian neighbors flocking in for this event as the band is also big in Indonesia and Malaysia.
Taking Back Sunday is a rock band from Amityville, New York made up of Adam Lazzara, John Nolan, Eddie Reyes, Shaun Cooper and Mark O’Connell . The band is founded by rhythm guitarist Reyes and has gone through line-up changes before the reformation of the original for their latest and fifth eponymous record. TBS, fondly called by fans, gained decent success through their independent label Victory Record’s release Tell All Your Friends in 2002. Tell All Your Friends spurned the now considered anthemic songs like “Great Romances of the 20th Century,” “You’re So Last Summer” and “Cute Without The E (Cut From The Team).”
