On Wednesday, April 2nd the much anticipated show with Taking Back Sunday and The Used came to Sokol Auditorium in Omaha, NE. Many fans remember that the show was supposed to take place a few months back but had to be rescheduled. I think I speak for many of the fans when I say it was worth the wait! Along with Taking Back Sunday and The Used, Tonight Alive and Sleepwave opened the show for the sold out crowd and got the crowd ready and energized for the main acts.
Backstage Entertainment was there covering the show and got a chance to meet with members from Taking Back Sunday and The Used to talk about the tour and their new music. First, we talked to Shaun Cooper from Taking Back Sunday and asked about some of the interview questions he hates to answer along with Shaun telling us a weird question he got asked about playing shows on Sundays. We also discussed their new album, “Happiness Is,” and if it’s easier or harder in the writing process releasing new albums.
Next, we talked to Jeph and Quinn from The Used and mentioned that the new album is out, “Imaginary Enemy,” and discussed their thoughts on digital piracy. The guys like people supporting the local record stores and buying the album from those stores but think how we’ll obtain music may change in the near future. Their hit single off the new album, “Cry,” is on the radio now and we asked their feelings on what their thoughts are when singles are released now compared to when they first heard themselves on the radio. Another topic of discussion was their Wikipedia page and how they have a “cult” following.
