Nintendo Fusion Tour

Boys Night Out and Fall Out Boy may be on the Nintendo Fusion Tour, but don't let the monikers of these poppy emo bands fool you -- they're still adults. The real boys of the tour are the four teenage members of Las Vegas' Panic! At the Disco, who formed their electronic rock dance party when guitarist Ryan Ross was only 12 years old. What were you doing when you were 12? Probably not writing introspective lyrics and making vaudevillian piano relevant again -- but the boys in Panic! At the Disco were doing just that. Barely over 18 now, they've created an artistic and exciting debut album, A Fever You Can't Sweat Out. Panic! was spotted by Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz, who inked the Vegas kids to Fueled by Ramen/Decaydance. Now Wentz has brought the boys out with him on this tour, and the young'uns have to play first. The good thing is, the crowd can dance and still make it home for curfew.
