Taking Back Sunday’s Adam Lazzara Announces Solo Livestream

Adam Lazzara of Taking Back Sunday has announced a solo livestream titled as ‘An Evening With Adam Lazzara’ which will see the frontman perform an acoustic set.

In addition to performing tracks from Taking Back Sunday’s catalogue of tracks and covers, he’s confirmed that he’ll perform some original tracks as well.

This is what Lazzara says on the livestream and how the idea came about.

“There have been times during this pandemic where I found myself in this constant state of worry. There has been and still is so much uncertainty surrounding nearly every aspect of our lives, “is it safe to go out?” “When do you think we will be able to tour again?” “Should I still be wiping down my groceries?” “Can my kids see their grandparents?” The list goes on.

Tom Petty has this great line in his song ‘Crawling Back To You’, it’s “most things I worry about never happen anyway.” That has come to mind so often over this last year and it has helped to remind me that all of that worry really wasn’t doing anything for me. There is so much that is completely out of my control, and that’s alright because all anyone can ever really do is just focus on the things they can control.

Over the last year it’s been especially hard for me to keep that front and center. I wanted to be working towards something rather than standing still with my list of ‘what ifs’. (It’s a long list and 98% arbitrary). As I was meandering on the guitar one day, I stumbled across an idea that I had never gotten around to finishing, and then another one, and another. The more focus I put towards those ideas the more time I seemed to lose track of and the more excited I was to get up early the next day to keep chasing them. Times are heavy but I felt lighter for doing this. I dearly miss the ability to connect with people the way I’ve been lucky to experience from playing live shows.

Considering these experiences are off the table for the foreseeable future, somewhere along the way the idea struck me to try a stream. This is completely new territory for me, in as much as its the same for everyone these days. So that’s what I’ve been trying my best to put my energy into. My hope is that it may help someone else feel a bit lighter, like it has done for me. My friend Shamus, who is a brilliant director and film editor, and I have been working together to make something really special and I can’t tell you how excited I am to see it all come together.”

The livestream will be taking place on October 18th 2020 at 2AM BST and will be made available on-demand until October 25th 2020.
