Fall Out Boy are an American pop-punk band from Wilmette, Illinois, consisting of frontman Patrick Stump, bassist Pete Wentz, guitarist Joe Trohman, and drummer Andy Hurley.
Formed in 2001, they released their debut album, ‘Take This to Your Grave’, in 2003, via Fueled by Ramen, and later signed to Island Records to release ‘From Under the Cork Tree’ in 2005. The album hit #9 in the Billboard Hot 200 and featured singles such as Sugar, We’re Goin Down and Dance Dance.
The band’s third album, ‘Infinity on High’, was released in 2007 and reached the top spot in the chart. ‘Folie à Deux’ followed in 2008, before the band went on hiatus. They returned in 2013 with ‘Save Rock and Roll’ in 2013. They released their latest album, ‘American Beauty/American Psycho’ in 2015.
They released their latest album 'Mania' in 2017, and have been touring the world in support of it, including an intimate show at London's Electric Brixton in January 2018, which precedes their handful of arena shows around the country in March.
Fall Out Boy also tour Australia, New Zealand, Europe, and North America this year too, before a headline slot at Reading and Leeds festival! Make sure to catch them live by checking out the tour dates and concert ticket information below on Stereoboard.
Buzzing atmosphere, pleasure to see them in such an intimate venue
Glasgow O2 Academy on August 24 2013
Fall Out Boy hit the stage around 9pm and unleashed a mix of old and new records. The band looked awesome and Pete supplied his usual antics on stage including a visit to the audience towards the end of the show. The band were tight, enthusiastic and looked to be really enjoying themselves on stage, glad to be back doing what they do best. The atmosphere was buzzing all night and it was a pleasure to see them playing such a small venue ahead of an arena tour.
Fall Out Boy have still got it! Months since the show and Im still speechless!! It was great to see the guys back on stage and they really turned it on for a fantastic show, playing both new material from their latest 'Save Rock and Roll' album, as well as their fan favourites and classics. They also took the opportunity to interact and joke with the crowd a lot. Its been too long guys, so glad you're back, cant wait to see you again!!
The atmosphere was amazing and the band really lapped it up, interacting with the crowd and joking about. They played selection of songs from both their old and newer albums including my favourites, Sugar We're Going Down, A Little Less 16 Candles, Disloyal Order of Buffaloes and This Ain't a Scene. Their songs are fantastic, their energy was burning and their genuine love for their fans shows in all they say and do.
Its been waaaay too long since Fall Out Boy last played in Scotland. When I heard they were returning to the UK for more live shows, needless to say, I was over the moon to see they had a Glasgow show on their tour schedule!
The show delivered a mix of both old and new material to a crowd that contained both older fans alongside fans who looked like this was their first ever gig! Sing-a-longs drove the night on through songs such as Grand Theft Auto, The Phoenix, Young Volcanoes and the woo-ooo-ing stepped up a gear for Death Valley.
The band raise the roof with final song Saturday and its plain to see Fall Out Boy are back and ready for more action.

Fall Out Boy have been hanging on to their pop-punk label by their fingernails since they emerged from hiatus in 2013. ‘Mania’ now sees the quartet loosen their grasp entirely, and fall hard because of it.
