I’ve been to anniversary album tours before for Mayday Parade’s Tales Told By Dead Friends and Cartel’s Chroma, and both bands played the album they toured for in its entirety. Going to anniversary tours gives nostalgic feelings to me when I go. If a band you like announces an anniversary tour, I highly recommend going to a date on the tour.
