Fall Out Boy - 2014 Monumentour
Fall Out Boy’s numerous chart-topping singles have made them the perennial kings of pop-punk over the last decade. Claiming the charts came by way of their explosive 2005 sophomore effort From Under the Cork Tree. Multi-platinum songs like “Dance, Dance,” “Sugar, We’re Going Down” and “This Ain’t a Scene, It’s an Arms Race” have been fixtures at parties for years, while recent hits “The Phoenix” and “My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark” are the latest mainstays on the radio waves. Though they took an open-ended hiatus after their fourth album Folie á Deux, the boys got back together two years ago with more energy, music and amibition than before.
Fall Out Boy is comprised of Chicago-natives Patrick Stump (vocals/guitar), Pete Wentz (bass), Joe Trohman (guitar) and Any Hurley (drums). The group blasted back onto the map last year, with the release of their No. 1 album, Save Rock and Roll—their gold certified fifth studio record. The album drop was followed up by a huge performance on the Victoria’s Secret Fashion show with Taylor Swift. FOB will be pairing up with another gutsy songstress, Hayley Williams of Paramore
, this summer per the announcement of the massively anticipated “Monumentour” ten years in the making. FOB is also slated for the coveted role of playing the 2014 Pro Bowl halftime show in Honolulu.
The epic “Monumentour” similarly follows the No.1 comeback album released by pop-punkers Paramore, and kicks off Jun 19 ($26 min) at Hartford, pummeling through 30-plus cities before ending in Concord on Aug 17 ($34 min). Their show in Irvine starts at $45, $31 in Charlotte, $23 in Palm Beach, $78 in Nashville and $28 in Phoenix.
