It looks like some of Fall Out Boy - bassist and band sound piece Pete Wentz - have arrived in the Valley early. Wentz has been twittering about being in Phoenix on his page (Pete Wentz), noting that baby Bronx is with him, which means wife Ashlee Simpson - whose uncle is owner of the Arizona-chain Blue Agave restaurants - is most likely in town, too.
"Phoenix, AZ: Lots of ocean front property. Also, no ocean," he tweeted earlier today.
The bass player and FOB song writer gave away some special passes to Friday's show at Mesa Amiptheatre ala a Tweet: 'Phoenix: I'm at Cheesecake Factory. If I see you in the parking lot on the way out, I'll give you tickets and meet 'n greet passes. First person only.'
Looks like Wentz is following in the footsteps of Twitter super fan and Suns center Shaquille O'Neal who often gives away Sun tickets to people following him on the social networking Web site.
FOB guitarist Joe Trohman and lead singer Patrick Stump are also on Twitter under the names Trohman and Patrick_Stump. Trohman and Wentz are the big Tweeters of the band though! Add Wentz and/or Fall Out Boy on Twitter if you want to score some coveted passes to Friday's show.
