After a painfully long hiatus lasting 2009-2013, Fall Out Boy is back and stronger than ever. The last two years have consisted of nonstop releases, tours, and killer performances from members Patrick Stump, Pete Wentz, Andy Hurley, and Joe Trohman, and they don’t look to be slowing down anytime soon. Chances are, fans are eagerly looking forward to their upcoming Boys Of Zummer tour, which kicks off in June, so in the meantime, we can remember some of their past performances in hopes that their summer shows will keep up with the incredibly high bar that they have set for themselves.

  • Global Earth Day (Washington, D.C.) - April 18th, 2015

    Apr. 18th, 2015 was Global Earth Day. Apr. 18th, 2015 brought together 300,000 people. Apr. 18th, 2015 was the biggest show Fall Out Boy ever played. Surrounded by screaming fans with a backdrop of the Washington Monument, the four of them played a half hour set filled with encouragements to “go green” in between each song. However, perhaps the most incredible part of the whole thing was that none of them showed any signs of intimidation by the large crowd. Patrick Stump’s vocals were flawless. Pete Wentz and Joe Trohman utilized the size of the stage to its full potential, and drummer Andy Hurley didn’t miss a single beat. The whole thing was the definition of perfection and was definitely one of their greatest achievements, especially in the eyes of their proud fans.

  • Park Avenue Armory (New York, NY) - November 13th, 2013

    2013 was a big year for Fall Out Boy. They dove back into the music scene with a driving force that produced chart-topping singles, sold out tours, and the release of a new album. So what better way to celebrate than by playing a show with a few dozen supermodels? On Nov. 13th, 2013, Stump, Wentz, Hurley, and Trohman all took to the (very sparkly) stage to play at the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. It was a uniquely interactive performance in the sense that the band played on the same catwalk as the models themselves, giving them the chance shamelessly flirt—something they later on admitted to being nervous about beforehand—as they rocked their hits “My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark” and “The Phoenix”.

  • Subterranean (Chicago, IL) - February 4th, 2013

    Upon announcing their reformation on Feb. 4th, 2013 (which will now forever be known as “FOBruary to fans), Fall Out Boy also announced that they would be playing a show that same day at Subterranean, a small venue in their hometown of Chicago. Needless to say, the sold-out concert was filled with emotion and nostalgia as the band played a set of 22 songs, including everything from hits like “Sugar We’re Goin’ Down”, to more rarely played tunes like “Honorable Mention”. But what made this show really special was the crowd. Even after years of being gone, there was still a room full of people singing every last word to every last song, welcoming them back as if they never left.
