Newly Reunited Fall Out Boy To Tour Australia In 2013

Written by James Arnold-Garvey on February 5, 2013

So Fall Out Boy are back together and accordingly the last 12 hours have been awash with Fall Out Boy news – after announcing a reformation performance for Jimmy Kimmel, then dropping details on a new album, Save Rock And Roll, with a street date of May 2013, and THEN releasing a clip for new single My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light Em Up), FOB have now released a bunch of tour dates for a whirlwind global tour to promote the forthcoming album and their resurrection. And, yes, Australia is on the layover list. Oh, yeah – all this happened overnight. Serves you right for sleeping.

If there’s one thing we’ve learned for sure in the last 24 hours, it’s that you can never trust a guitarist. Ever. After ‘Jivin’ Joe Trohman hoodwinked everybody with assertions that his former band Fall Out Boy had no chance of ever reforming – as recently as a week ago, no less – and ‘Slippery’ Pete Wentz announced through mascara-streaked crocodile tears “that something would have to change in my head or my heart” for him to reform Fall Out Boy, well, waddya know? They only went and reformed Fall Out Boy.

Now, after the band updated their official page late last night, we know Sydney and Melbourne will get their own Fall Out Boy shows next month, at the relatively intimate Metro and Palace theatres, respectively. If you’re now screaming internally at the fact you live in neither of those cities, just count your blessings – the good ol’ USA is the ONLY other country to get two FOB shows before the new album drops, counting our name on an exclusive list including New York, LA, Paris, London and Berlin. The last time Fall Out Boy toured was 2009, and back then they were so big even our larger arenas were no match for the size of their fan base.

There are no details on ticket prices or availability as yet, but you can be sure these are going to be some of the hottest tickets in town when they hit the streets. Stick with Music Feeds and you’ll get the skinny as soon as we do.
