Fall Out Boy Cover the Hits and More at Mesa Ampitheatre Concert
Fall Out Boy kicked off the first date of their Believers Never Die Tour Friday at Mesa Amiptheatre with a nearly 90-minute set that covered all the hits as well as highlights from their latest disc Folie A Deux.
Chicago's fantastic four, dressed sharply in suits, took the stage a little after 8:30 p.m. and broke into "Disloyal Order of Water Buffalos," the rockin' first track off Folie A Deux.
"It's cool we're kicking off in Phoenix because that's where we left off with that DVD of our's," FOB bassist and mouthpiece Pete Wentz said referring to the group's Live in Phoenix album they recorded during the Honda Civic Tour in 2007 at Cricket Pavilion.
The crowd, which was comprised of tweens, teens, twentysomethings and parents, loudly shrieked back.
Guy liner' lovin' Wentz who was prone to dropping the f-bomb most of the night - seriously you could have played a drinking game to the countless times he said fuck - seemed to enjoy shocking the crowd with the simplicity of cursing.
"This is an old song but we are going to play it anyway because every song makes money so shut the fuck up," he said before breaking into the third track, "A Little Less Sixteen Candles, A Little More 'Touch Me'" from 2005's From Under the Cork Tree, the disc which put the band on the pop-punk map.
