Last night, July 13th, 2014, thousands of fans were lined up across the entire The Woods Amphitheater at Fontanel property for the gates to open in anticipation of seeing beloved Fall Out Boy and special guest New Politics for the MONUMENTOUR. The most dedicated fans were already in the grounds, lined up to have their photos taken with Patrick Stump, Pete Wentz, Joe Trohman and Andy Hurley during the exclusive “Meet & Greet.” As the gates finally opened, the crowd rushed to the merchandise booths, to the famous Nashville food trucks (including The Grilled Cheeserie, Slow & Low and the Jenni’s Splendid Ice Cream truck), and into The Woods Amphitheater to claim a spot as close to the front row as possible.
Jim Florentine (of Crank Yankers) took the stage to introduce opening band, New Politics. The 3 piece band, originally from Copenhagen, Denmark, performed their smash hit “Harlem”, which recently hit top 5 in modern rock radio, and their new hit "Tonight You're Perfect", already in the top 20. The band enjoyed crowd surfing to the delight of the audience and made a point to compliment the American women on their accents.
After the high energy set, Fall Out Boy took the stage to deliver a phenomenal show, complete with pyrotechnics. Fan enjoyed a mix of music including throw backs "Thnks fr th Mmrs" (pronounced “Thanks for the Memories”) and the new multiplatinum hit “My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light Em Up)”. Their new album SAVE ROCK AND ROLL is the gold certified fifth studio album from the GRAMMY-nominated band Fall Out Boy and also features and the new hit “Alone Together.”
The MONUMENTOUR, which kicked off on June 15, in Hartford, CT will continue traveling through cities such as Toronto, Atlanta, Dallas, Denver, Phoenix and Charlotte until August 17th. Checkout Fall Out Boy's website www.falloutboy.com for more information.
