After having to leave the current tour right in the middle because of the abrupt birth of his second child, Taking Back Sunday frontman, Adam Lazzara has confirmed that he will in fact be returning to the stage at tonight’s show. At the time, the band confirmed that Lazzara would be taking “as much necessary time” to be with his family, but that the band would move forward with the already planned and scheduled shows they had lined up.
While Lazzara was off with his wife and newborn baby, the band has gone ahead and asked former Underoath frontman, Spencer Chamberlain, a friend of the band, to fill in the meantime.
An official statement from Taking Back Sunday regarding Lazzara’s return can be read here:
“We are happy to announce that Adam will rejoin the Fall Tour tomorrow, November 3 at The Fillmore Charlotte. Everyone is in good health and we can’t begin to thank Spencer Chamberlain enough for helping us out. We also want to thank you for being so kind through all of this.
Don’t forget tomorrow’s show includes our friends Anberlin The Maine and Transit! You can get the info for the rest of the tour here: http://www.takingbacksunday.com/tour/“
Videos of Chamberlain performing some of Taking Back Sunday’s shows have surfaced as well and can be seen below.

“Existentialism on Prom Night” (not a Taking Back Sunday song, we know, but they did perform it with John Nolan taking the lead, of course)
