This guy isn't as bad as Brand New's security guard back in 2009. I was at one of their "pre-Daisy" shows in Hartford CT. They had this one guy in a leather jacket, bald head and a goatee. He would go into the crowd and break up mosh pits and eject crowd surfers. There was one scrawny kid, probably 16 or 17 years old, next to me who was "scene dancing". The kid wasn't bothering anyone. I turn my head and watched the show. Next thing you know, i get shoved out of the way. I had my fist ready to deck whoever it was. Turns out it was that security guard, making his way past everyone and put the kid in a full nelson before dragging him out. FoB's security guard is a teddy bear compared to that jerk off.

Sounds like local security. I'm not sure Brand New ever had bodyguards

Nah, I think I'd rather work on my taxes or maybe do a Sudoku puzzle or watch paint dry.

Kinda related, but ugh, tried to buy tickets for the Seattle date and they're sold out... within two hours. Such a bummer... this might be my first time buying from a scalper.

Pretty sure security is up there to escort crowd surfers off the stage. There's nowhere else to pull the kids from the crowd so he's up there for it. If you watch the other live videos you'll see that's all he does. And in the Light Em Up video you see a girl get passed up and he goes to grab her but she kind of holds him off and she jumps back into the crowd... So I think that's the only reason he's there.

Can anyone explain the presence of the big black security guards at every show? Is this something they've always had or is it Pete's bodyguard or something? I just think it's pretty lame seeing a big dude just standing there throughout their set.
With a super tiny venue it's necessary. At random hardcore shows the crowd floods onto the stage. Imagine how many people would fly into Fall Out Boy?

Columbus sold out within 20mins! Crazy, because I'm sure 1/4 of the tickets per venue are up on Stubhub for 3-4x face value

Edit: actually there aren't that many! Some venues only have 2 tickets available... But some venues have tickets going for $999. Really?

It could've been. I have been at the Webster Theater a few times before and after that show and I haven't seen him. I hope he got fired being an asshole haha
