Fall Out Boy fans certainly have plenty of reasons to celebrate in 2013. After a four-year-long hiatus, the Illinois-based rock band surprised FOB faithful by officially confirming plans for a new album and supporting world trek. The Save Rock and Roll Tour, named after the new album, will travel across North America from May 5-June 30, and after overwhelming popular demand for the initial set of dates, the group added a second leg to the North American stint, Sept. 5-29.
To add to the anticipation, Fall Out Boy announced on April 8 that they have begun streaming “Save Rock and Roll” in its entirety, a full week before the record’s official worldwide release on April 15-16. The album is currently being streamed online for free via the band’s Soundcloud page, while each song’s lyrics have also been posted on the band’s website.
The Fall Out Boy tour will kick off May 14 at the Rave in Milwaukee, Wis., which will be the first of several intimate venues set to host the group in over 30 cities across the country, with most containing a capacity of just around 2,000 concertgoers. Fall Out Boy will travel to these smaller locations on a path through Chicago (May 16), Toronto (May 24), Atlanta (June 2), Los Angeles (June 13), Seattle (June 19), and St. Louis (June 28), just to name only a few. The first portion will wrap up on June 30 in Nashville, Tenn., at the Ryman Auditorium.
After a month-long break, a second leg of the journey will pick up in September. Dubbed the Save Rock and Roll Arena Tour, this 16-city trek will set sail at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn., on Sept. 5. Continuing on, the group will visit Brooklyn’s Barclays Center (Sept. 7), the Palace of Auburn Hills in Auburn Hills, Mich. (Sept. 14), and the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in The Woodlands, Texas (Sept. 25), among many more. The final scheduled Fall Out Boy concert of 2013 brings the boys down to the USF Sun Dome in Tampa, Fla., on Sept. 29.
