Fall Out Boy tapes for Fuse TV
Last night at the Chicago Theatre Fall Out Boy gave their fans an early Christmas present by putting on a free show. Members of the FOB fan club were invited to the theatre to get a sneak peek at their upcoming album Folie a Deux. The concert will air on Fuse TV on December 16th at 9PM ET.
I was one of the likely fans to attend the show last night! The boys overtook the Chicago Theatre with pyrotechnics, huge vibrant art displays, lights, and enough energy to power the city. Pete Wentz, fresh off having his baby Bronx, did his part as leader of the band, but Pat's vocals were what carried the show. At one point, Pat played all by himself in front of the packed audience. The band together played everything from Dance, Dance to their new hit I Don't Care to others like Sugar, We're Going Down and This Ain't A Scene, It's An Arms Race. It was all a great mix of sight and sound. The highlight of the concert was the dancing bears (two guys dressed in full body bear costumes dancing around the stage...hilarious).
People in the crowd included Andrew Ripp, De'Mar Hamilton (drummer of Plain White T's), and William Beckett (singer of The Academy Is...).
Funny quote from Pete Wentz..."I don't have a helicopter, but I got the Ferrari and the private jet!"
