Fall Out Boy announces 2018 tour

Fall Out Boy is bringing its highly anticipated seventh studio album M A N I A on the road to 25+ U.S. cities beginning August 29th in Uniondale, NY with special guest Machine Gun Kelly on all dates. Gym Class Heroes, Every Time I Die, Against The Current, State Champs, L.I.F.T., and nothing,nowhere will each join the tour on select dates to be announced.

American Express Card Members can purchase tickets before the general public beginning Monday, January 22nd at 10 am local through Thursday, January 25th at 10 pm local. Tickets go on sale to the general public starting Friday, January 26th at 10 am local time via Ticketmaster. $1 from every ticket sold will go to the Fall Out Boy Fund benefiting charities throughout Chicago. Prior to the U.S. run, the band will continue their global tour with dates across Australia, New Zealand, Europe and Asia.

On September 8th, Fall Out Boy will return to their hometown for a special homecoming milestone – their first-ever headline show at Chicago’s iconic Wrigley Field. The band previously performed at Wrigley as MLB’s first-ever live musical performance on Opening Night in April 2015. Most recently, Fall Out Boy took over the 7th inning stretch and sang “Take Me Out To The Ballgame” on September 16, 2017 when the Cubs hosted the St. Louis Cardinals – a game at which Pete Wentz also had the honor of throwing the game’s ceremonial first pitch.

“I grew up going to games with my dad at Wrigley,” says Pete Wentz. “This stadium contains so much magic from being a kid…. I can’t think of somewhere closer to me to come home and play a show at in Chicago.”

The band celebrated the album’s release this week with performances on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night (Thurs, Jan 18th) and ABC’s Good Morning America this morning (Fri, July 19th), along with an appearance on MTV’s TRL on Wednesday. They will perform on The Late Late Show with James Corden on January 31st.
