Fall Out Boy is back and was ready to Rock and Roll with the sold out crowd in attendance at the Barclays Center. Fall Out Boy's ''Save Rock and Roll Tour'' featured a powerhouse lineup of openers including Twenty One Pilots and Panic! at the Disco.
The show kicked off with the Alternative Hip Hop duo Twenty One Pilots. Their set included performances of hits like ''Holding On To You,'' ''Car Radio'' and ''Migraine.'' They rapped, singed and at times wore ski masks while playing the drums and piano. Not knowing what was coming next kept the crowd entertained with the energetic group.
Next to take the stage was Alternative Rock band Panic! at the Disco. Their stage setup included an elaborate backdrop showcasing the band's name and various mannequins. They began with intense lights that lead right into the performance of ''Time to Dance.'' They continued the dance party with ''The Ballad of Mona Lisa'' and ''The Only Difference Between Martyrdom and Suicide is Press.'' Panic! at the Disco's high energy set included hits and even some new songs from their upcoming album ''Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die!'' out October 8th like the lastest single ''This is Gospel'' and the first single ''Miss Jackson'' with special guest Lolo. The set closed with the crowd singing along to performances of P!ATD hits ''But It's Better If You Do'' and ''I Write Sins Not Tragedies.''
The lights dimmed and screams erupted throughout the Barclays Center as Fall Out Boy took the stage. They opened with ''The Phoenix'' wearing ski masks and waving white ''FOB'' flags. The ski masks were taken off and ''I Slept With Someone In Fall Out Boy And All I Got Was This Stupid Song Written About Me'' and ''A Little Less Sixteen Candles, A Little More "Touch Me"'' from the hit album ''From Under the Cork Tree'' were performed.
Fall Out Boy's setlist included a great mix of songs from their first release ''Take This To Your Grave'' to the latest release ''Save Rock and Roll.'' Some songs performed were ''This Ain't A Scene, It's An Arms Race,'' ''The Take Over, The Break's Over,'' ''Alone Together,'' and ''Sugar, We're Goin Down.'' They even performed ''20 Dollar Nose bleed'' with P!ATD's Brendon Urie and covers of ''I Wanna Be Sedated'' and ''Blitzkrieg Bop'' with special guest Marty Ramone of The Ramones on drums.
The multilevel stage, interactive onstage video screen and mesmerizing lights just enhanced the stellar performances. If it was possible for there not to be enough happening on the main stage, halfway through their set Fall Out Boy played a second stage located on General Admission floor. With this being such an up close and personal location, Fall Out Boy took this opportunity to perform acoustic. They played ''I'm Like A Lawyer With The Way I'm Always Trying To Get You Off (Me & You)'' before being joined onstage by Travie McCoy for a special performance of ''Billionaire.'' Fall Out Boy performed an acoustic version of ''Grand Theft Autumn (Where Is Your Boy)'' before heading back to the main stage.
Back on the main stage it was time to Dance Dance to ''Dance Dance'' before flames took over the stage for ''My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up).'' The amped up crowd was treated to an encore that included ''Save Rock and Roll,'' a crowd photo with FOB during ''Thanks for the Memories'' and an unforgettable closing to the Saturday evening with ''Saturday.''
Fall Out Boy delivered an action packed hit filled set that made everyone in attendance beyond happy that they survived the hiatus.
