If Taking Back Sunday is going to celebrate its 20-year anniversary this weekend in St. Petersburg, it’s going to have to do it all in one night.

The Long Island emo heroes have canceled the second night of a planned two-night stand at Jannus Live. They’ll perform Sunday as planned, but the concert that was scheduled for Monday has been canceled. Those with tickets to Monday’s show can exchange them for a ticket for Sunday, or get a refund at point of purchase.

No reason was given for the cancellation, although promoters No Clubs Productions posted on Facebook that “the decision was made by band management, we’re just passing it on.”

It’s a bit of a bummer for the band’s biggest fans. On this 20th anniversary tour, the band was playing two-night stands. On Night 1, they would play their 2002 album Tell All Your Friends in its entirety, plus either 2004′s Where You Want to Be or 2006′s Louder Now. On Night 2, they’d play Tell All Your Friends and the other album. With St. Pete now being a one-night stand, they’ll play a long set including Tell All Your Friends and selections from throughout the rest of their career.

Tickets to Sunday’s show are still on sale for $32 and up. Click here for details.

The rapper has been sentenced to more than three years in federal prison after pleading guilty to weapons charges stemming from his arrest just before a scheduled concert performance in May. The 22-year-old admitted in August that he falsified information on federal forms to buy four firearms from a Miami-area gun shop on two separate occasions.

    The sentence was far less than the maximum 10-year sentence he could have received.
