Alternative rock band Anberlin brought the Twenty Year Celebration tour to Atlanta with a three night residency at The Masquerade, beginning December 1st and closing out December 3rd, 2022.
The tour featured complete performances of the albums Never Take Friendship Personal on night 1, Cities on night 2, and New Surrender on the final night. Target Audience Magazine was at The Masquerade to capture the performances on nights 2 and 3. Highlights included an 18-year-old fan joining vocalist Stephen Christian on stage to sing “Dismantle. Repair.”, the inaugural live performance of the track “Decoder” from the band’s upcoming EP, and the whole audience being invited on stage (or, at least as many as could fit on the small stage) to help Anberlin close out the final evening with “Impossible.”
Anberlin will close out the tour in Orlando, FL at The Social beginning December 8th. Tickets available here!
