Show Review: Fall Out Boy (2/7/2013; The Roxy Theatre Los Angeles CA)
Show Review: Fall Out Boy (2/7/2013; The Roxy Theatre Los Angeles CA)
02/08/13 at 01:55 AM by Drew Beringer
I wouldn't say I had doubts about Fall Out Boy's return from hiatus. Everything the band has done leading up to and past this past Monday had been thoroughly planned and executed perfectly. The new song shot up the iTunes' charts. AbsolutePunk.net cannot stop talking about it. It was all my friends over in the Buzznet office could talk about all week. Yet, I couldn't help but feel a little nervousness minutes away from Fall Out Boy hitting the stage at the Roxy in Los Angeles for their third show this week since the announcement. A lot has changed since 2009 - my taste and interests have dramatically changed since Folie a Deux released in late 2008. So I anxiously held my breath as the lights dimmed and the Jay-Z spoken word intro began playing over the speakers. How would...[read more]

Pete seemed pissed the entire time and rambled on and on under a mumbled breath. Do I wish that the show didn't play like a KROQ set, catered to radio listeners who live off hits? You bet, but was it good enough to sit anxiously for 10am for tickets to the next LA show? Yup. I just hope they stray from all those singles and realize that we do in fact listen to the whole album, not just the handful of singles they release.

Great review. Really jealous. The Boston show sold out insanely fast this morning, but hopefully I can find a hook up.

I'm bummed to hear that there probably won't be a TTTYG tour, but I have a lot of respect for their reason why.

And the Cassadee Pope thing is pretty awesome, in a random way.

Really? Have you ever been to a show before where a fairly well-known band doesn't play their most well-known songs? It would be incredible to see FOB play all of their b-sides and deep cuts, but that is entirely unrealistic. To expect them, or any band, not to play their biggest songs would be unrealistic as well. I'm sure bands try to do their best to create a setlist that will please the most amount of fans, and they honestly can't do that without playing "Dance Dance" or "This Ain't a Scene."

Same thing for the NYC show at Terminal 5. Was stuck in a meeting that ran a little late and by the time I got to my desk they were sold out. Anyone out there with an extra ticket, I'm willing to pony up some cash, so get at me.

good review. can't wait to see them. hopefully their denial of a 10 year anniversary tour is only for now. since they're focusing on this tour. maybe a small tour to end the year. fingers crossed.

Great recap Drew, I agree. Would have been nice to meet you last night - but there's always the ETID show in a few weeks.

If anybody cares, I put up some videos & pictures in my recap as well - http://www.behindthehype.com/music-r...ig-videospics/

awesome review. i got a little stinging in my eyes reading it. this is coming from a 28 year old, male fan and i am not even the slightest bit ashamed. fall out boy mean everything to me.

i sit in quiet panic waiting for 5:00 pm to roll around to buy my tickets for the st. louis show. it will be my first time seeing them.
