Ten-year Anniversary Tours Are My Everything

8:14:00 PM

I'm at that age where all of my favorite bands are embarking on anniversary tours for their most iconic albums. From The Starting Line to The Academy Is... and most recently, Cute Is What We Aim For, these bands are letting me relive my youth in the best way possible.

I try to not to do the math and think about how old I was then and my age now, but I wish more bands would go out and play an entire album for fans. It's really amazing to see how the lyrics stand the test of time and can take on a whole new meaning from when the did a decade ago. Plus, the amazing merch many of these bands create for these shows is enough for me to buy a ticket!

With albums like Say It Like You Mean It, Tell All Your Friends, Leaving Through The Window and many more, the early 2000s was the Renaissance of the most amazing genre of music and I'm more than happy to relive those years. And now as "newer" bands are starting to reach that pinnacle ten-year mark, I eagerly await each of them to announce a similar tour.

My most memorable ten-year tours I've gone to are The Starting Line, Taking Back Sunday, New Found Glory and The Academy Is... they all legitimately brought me to tears and I've never felt happier than when I was singing along to the songs that shaped my youth. For me, it's not about nostalgia, it's about growth. My growth and the growth of my favorite bands. It's amazing to look back at who we were and where we've been to what we've accomplished in ten short years.

You'll be able to hear my scream if Mayday Parade decides to do one for Tales Told By Dead Friends or A Lesson In Romantics, regardless of me having a mid-life crisis about the albums reaching double digits.
