After Patrick Stump and Pete Wentz’s side-projects didn’t quite take off in the way they probably hoped for, the kings of the 00s emo-pop scene have decided to reclaim their throne with the release of Fall Out Boy tickets for their first tour in four years.
The chart-topping quartet have already played several intimate warm-up shows at the likes of New York’s Webster Hall Studio, Los Angeles’ The Roxy and Chicago’s Subterranean as a thank you to fans who have patiently waited for their return ever since the end of 2009’s Believers Never Die tour.
But they will officially re-enter the live arena when they visit Milwaukee’s The Rave on May 14th (get-in price $111, average price $161) in support of their fifth studio album, the ambitiously-titled Save Rock & Roll. The band will then take in a further 31 dates across North America, including Canadian shows at Toronto’s Sound Academy on May 24th ($102/$130), Montreal’s Metropolis on May 25th ($79/$124) and Vancouver’s Commodore Ballroom on June 20th ($58/$159), before concluding the tour at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium on June 30 ($94/$135).
With an average get-in price of $112 and an overall tour average price of $174, there are still Fall Out Boy tickets available on TiqIQ for each show, although there are only a handful remaining for the gigs at Detroit’s The Fillmore on May 22nd ($157/$177), Tempe’s Marque Theatre on June 11th ($165/$165) and Oakland’s Fox Theater on Jun 16 ($107/$107).
The lowest get-in price for Fall Out Boy tickets on TiqIQ is currently for the June 25th concert at Kansas City’s Uptown Theater at $60, with the lowest average price for the June 26th gig at Saint Paul’s Myth at $105. While the May 26th date at Boston’s House Of Blues has both the highest get-in price at $459 and highest average price at a whopping $2297.
The Chicago-based outfit, who are also scheduled to appear at the Reading/Leeds Festival, Japan’s Summer Sonic and New Jersey’s Skate and Surf later this year, will no doubt use the opportunity to showcase material from the long-awaited follow-up to 2009’s Folie a Deux including lead single, “My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light Em Up).”
But the setlists from their recent secret shows have also included their cover of Michael Jackson’s “Beat It,” Billboard Top 10 hits “Dance, Dance,” “Sugar, We’re Going Down” and “This Ain’t A Scene, It’s An Arms Race” and Rock Band favourite “Dead On Arrival” alongside a medley featuring tracks from 2003’s Evening Out With Your Girlfriend mini-LP (“Calm Before The Storm,” “Honourable Mention”) and several numbers from their full-length debut, Take This To Your Grave (“Tell That Mick He Just Made My List Of Things To Do Today,” “Grand Theft Autumn/Where Is Your Boy”).
