Taking Back Sunday is putting on its first destination concert, “Island Adventure Fun Time Jamboree,” in Runaway Bay, Jamaica in early 2018.

The event is running January 4-8 at Jewel Paradise Cover Resort. The experience is aimed straight at Taking Back Sunday superfans, with four performances scheduled from the band, three being electric and one acoustic.

The fun time jamboree also includes a meet & greet, karaoke and other activities. Frank Iero And The Patience are also playing four sets, three plugged and one unplugged.

“We’re very excited to be doing our first destination event, we’ve never done anything like this,” TBS John Nolan said of the event. “Doing it in a tropical location and being able to bring our families out will be great.  We really hope that folks are excited about the idea as we are.”

The band is still hyping new tunes off its 2016 album, Tidal Wave.
