Eight months on from a serious motorcycle accident that left Dashboard Confessional frontman Chris Carrabba needing surgery and rehab, a special comeback show has been announced by the band most famous for emo anthems like 'Hands Down', 'Don’t Wait', and 'Vindicated'.
'Lonely Hearts & Lovers', a special virtual concert on February 14th (Valentines Day to all you non loved up folk), will be streamed from the beautiful Riverside Revival Church in Nashville on Sunday night and will be the bands first performance since April 2020.
Talking about the show, Dashboard singer Chris Carrabba said;
”Nearly a year ago, our 20 year celebration came to a halt when everyone’s lives were changed by Covid. Then, I was in an accident that left me worried that I would never be able to play music again. I received so much kindness from people I know and people I don’t know.
The kindness that I received from friends, family, and total strangers was incredible. Over the last 20 years, you have given me so much, and I am just so grateful. I can’t explain what it felt like to get back in the room with my bandmates and play music again.
This year has been hard for everyone and we all are missing each other more than ever. I know we can’t be together until it is safe for everyone to do so, but I miss hearing your voices, and seeing your faces. I’d be so pleased to see you.”
Tickets can be purchased from Dashboard Confessional’s website for $15, along with limited-edition merch bundles and vinyl reissues.
The stream will feature a 19 song set from a never seen before version of Dashboard Confessional, will go live at 7 pm eastern, 4 pm pacific, and midnight in Britain, and will available to watch again by ticket holders up to 48 hours after the show ends.
