Fall Out Boy set to kick off the "Monumentour"
It's going to be hard to top 2013 for Fall Out Boy. After all, they had a top-selling, critically-acclaimed new album, a bevy of radio hits and a headlining tour. So how do they raise the bar in 2014?
The "Monumentour" – the pairing of Fall Out Boy and Paramore – is the answer. Two top-shelf pairings, each band playing the same amount of time on stage, and even playing some songs together on some nights. The name was the brainchild of Paramore bassist Jeremy Davis, and it reflects the pairing in a way that not even a savvy marketer would've been able to come up with. (After all, Paramore just notched its biggest pop hit with "Ain't It Fun," and has become a household name in the pop and rock worlds).
So what can the fans expect from the tour? For one thing, Fall Out Boy says the stunts from its previous tour will be replaced with all new looks and bigger stunts this time out. In fact, the band has looked at Guns N'Roses and Metallica's tour from 1992 for inspiration, and anticipates putting all the bells and whistles to use in amphitheaters around the country this summer.
If you want to see two of the biggest bands in modern rock for a string of epic shows, the "Monumentour" kicked off June 19th in Hartford, Connecticut and continues across North America deep into the summer. The trek officially wraps on August 17 in Concord, California at the Sleep Train Pavilion but we urge you not to miss this pairing. Don't be caught napping – get your tickets now!
Fall Out Boy falls back in (Created August 16, 2013)
Don't use the word 'reunited' around members of Fall Out Boy, because the band will be quick to remind you it never broke up in the first place.
The Chicago pop-punk act regrouped earlier this year and released their fifth studio album, "Save Rock and Roll." Not only was it their first new project since 2008's "Folie á Deux," it also marked the 10th anniversary of the band's debut "Take This To Your Grave."
Fall Out Boy as it exists now is how it always has been. The band – Patrick Stump, Pete Wentz, Joe Trohman and Andy Hurley – say they simply needed to 'plug back in and make some music that matters to us.' And plug back in they did. It was February 4, 2013 when the guys officially put to rest any and all rumors about new material by noting their hiatus had officially ended. They not only announced the new album, they also announced a tour. To mark the occasion, they made a mini-bonfire of sorts in their hometown of Chicago, burning all of their previous albums and debuting their new single "My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up)."
Fall Out Boy performed on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" on February 13, and "Save Rock and Roll" was released two months later. The album debuted at No. 1 on the charts, and after a handful of shows they embarked on a new tour that ran from May 14 to June 30. They're also scheduled to play at Reading and Leeds in the UK and Summer Sonic in Japan.
Fall Out Boy Tickets** - Definitely Fall For This Different Kind of Boy Band!
And fall hard -- because this was the age of emo pop, and Fall Out Boy was certainly a flagship. Founded back in 2001 with four members in suburban Wilmette, 14 miles north of Chicago -- vocalist and guitarist Patrick Stump, bass guitarist Pete Wentz, drummer Andrew Hurley, and guitarist Joe Trohman -- Fall Out Boy became a classic after some stints, self-released demos, and a minor-label swing to eventually sign with Fueled by Ramen and Island Records for their proper debut album in 2003.
Fall Out Boy Tickets - The Music of Fall Out Boy
Their debut, of course, wasn't the hard-hitting, sky-rocketing extravaganza that many of us might know of. Entitled Take This to Your Grave, it earned positive reviews, more than enough to warrant the release of a second album. It was 2005's From Under the Cork Tree that earned them acclaim with the chart-topping smash hits 'Sugar We're Going Down' and the upbeat number 'Dance, Dance.' Immediately, the album went double-platinum and even earned the band a Grammy nomination for Best New Artist. After numerous award shows, TRL visits, late-night television gigs, and a ton of international tours and arena shows, Fall Out Boy popped themselves back in the studio to work on the second proper album to match the status of Cork Tree. Infinity on High showed up in 2007 with the hit track 'This Ain't a Scene, It's an Arms Race' spearheading the obvious success Fall Out Boy already had. The album debuted right at number on on the Billboard charts, followed by a platinum certification. Not too shabby.
Fall Out Boy Tickets - The Sound and Style of Fall Out Boy
Obviously, if you were to take one listen and look at the Fall Out Boy band, you can say for certain that they were definitely emo. However.... Typically, you associate emo with some of the darker colors, maybe even a sombre look on the face. However, Fall Out Boy had a more upbeat sort of tempo, an upbeat look. Even Pete Wentz with his dark hair, pale look, and makeup, had an upbeat feel! They knew how to play some sweet rock music without all the angst and angry tones of which alternative metal was characteristic.
