December 2, the famous and classic Beacon Theater was graced by the presence of young rock royalty, Fall Out Boy, headlining New York City’s Fresh 102.7 Radio Holiday Jam event. The venue was packed with fans of all ages and typed, screaming from the top of their lungs on having been able to be at a smaller sized show for such a huge band.
The Chicago, Illinois based band opened the show right with one of their largest hit, “Sugar, We’re Goin Down,” and the fans were squealing in excitement that even earplugs couldn’t protect the noise level. With singer and guitarist Patrick Stump getting right into the groove of the show singing powerfully the ballady hits, following up with another hit “Irresistible.”
Bassist Pete Wentz, who starts and is normally set on stage left (right side for the fans facing), doesn’t stick around in his spot too long and heads to guitarist’s Joe Trohman’s side and excites the crowd on that side as well. Each song following is another huge hit, with “A Little Less Sixteen Candles, a Little More ’Touch Me’” follows as the third song, and the fans just continue to explode with joy.
Fall Out Boy continues with hit after hit for their special set, following with “This Ain’t a Scene, It’s an Arms Race” and “Dance, Dance.” Considering the show was a Holiday Jam, the band covered Charlie Brown’s “Christmas Time Is Here.”
The set closed out with “Thanks for the Memories” and “Centuries,” which left the fans happy to have had the experience but longing for more.
Opening acts for the Holiday Jam were Lolo, George Ezra, Elle King and Sara Bareilles.
