taking back sunday: USA (Charlotte), July 9, 2006
Taking Back Sunday is known for putting on an incredible live show, and this one didn't fail to impress. The crowd sang along with every word. The entire crowd was a gigantic mosh pit, with people shoving and moving constantly.

Sound: For some reason, most people I know that like Taking Back Sunday also think that they suck live. They're wrong. Every song sounded perfect, and the harmonica used for Divine Intervention even sounded right. However, Adam didn't sing Divine Intervention as good as I think he could have, probably due to the fact that he was playing guitar, singing, and playing harmonica when he wasn't singing. Other than that one song, everything sounded good. // 9

Perfomance: Taking Back Sunday is known for putting on an incredible live show, and this one didn't fail to impress. The crowd sang along with every word. The entire crowd was a gigantic mosh pit, with people shoving and moving constantly. I loved it, you could feel the energy throughout the entire show. What really suprised me is that they played a lot of old songs. Having just released a new album, I thought it was going to be non-stop new songs, but they only played a few. I can't remember the exact order, but the set list was something like this: 01. Bonus Mosh Pt. II 02. Bike Scene 03. Makedamnsure 04. Set Phasers To Stun 05. Cute Without The 'E' 06. My Blue Heaven 07. The Union 08. This Photograph Is Proof 09. Error: Operator 10. Spin 11. Divine Intervention 12. A Decade Under The Influence They had some cool lights and stuff, nothing really special. // 10

Overall Impression: The show was in USA, Charlotte, Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre in the parking lot on July 9th, 2006. The Subways, Head Automatica and Angels & Airwaves opened. They were all really good, especially The Subways and AVA. I loved the show, it was incredible. But it was really hot outside, and it was in the parking lot, which made it even hotter. Tickets were $40, but I got them kind of late, so I could've gotten them cheaper if I wasn't so lazy. It was still worth it. The most unforgettable moment was when Tom DeLonge told everyone to give the sun the finger because it was too bright to have the light show, or when the crowd went crazy when the opening chords to Cute Without The E were played. I'm definetly going the the next show that's anywhere near here. // 10
