The Monumentour featuring Fall Out Boy and Paramore is hitting the road this summer. The co-headlining tour will kick off in Hartfort, CT and make stops all across America before wrapping up in Scranton, PA in late August.
Both Paramore and Fall Out Boy have seen their fair share of turmoil at the peak of their careers. Paramore’s founders Zac and Josh Farro parted ways in 2010, and Fall Out Boy took an uncertain hiatus. Both bands made triumphant returns and are still riding the high on number 1 albums. It only seems fitting that the two join together for their biggest tour together.
Paramore’s energetic performance will set the stage for Fall Out Boy’s over the top pyrotechnics. Complete with confetti and streamers, Paramore’s set list includes “Still Into You,” “Proof,” “Misery Business,” “The Only Exception,” “Ignorance,” “Let the Flames Begin” and more.
Expect lots of energy, special effects and audience-connecting moments during Fall Out Boy’s 75 minute set. The set list includes “Dance, Dance,” “This Ain’t a Scene, It’s an Arms Race,” “Sugar, We’re Goin’ Down,” “Save Rock and Roll,” “My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light ‘Em Up)” and more.
Fall Out Boy emerged in 2001 from the Chicago pop punk scene. The band started out as a side project for members Pete Wentz and Joe Troham, but the band’s 2005 breakthrough album From Under the Cork Tree put Fall Out Boy on the map. The album produced two hit songs: “Dance, Dance” and “Sugar, We’re Goin’ Down.” Their follow-up album, released just two years later, produced the hit “This Ain’t a Scene, It’s an Arms Race.” The band went on hiatus from 2009 to 2012 and remerged to release a new album Save Rock and Roll in 2013.
Paramore formed in 2004 and released their debut album All We Know is Falling in 2005. Their second album Riot! was certified platinum in the United States and several other countries. In 2010, the band’s founding members parted ways with Paramore, but the group released a self-titled fourth album in 2013, which debuted at number one on the charts.
