Last night Fall Out Boy, played at Qudos Bank Arena. As I walked up to the Qudos there were lines of Fall Out Boy fans. You could tell this was a eager audience, as they were waiting to see their favorite band. When the doors opened, half the crowd ran to the merch stand, as the fans walked away with their official merchandise you could tell they were excited to have something that you could only buy while they were on tour. The other half of the line ran to the mosh pit to get the best spot they possibly could.
As you looked at the stage there was a blue and purple backdrop, as the crowd started cheering a 30 second timer poped up and everyone pulled out there phones and started filming. Fall Out Boy came on stage and started playing "The Phoenix" and proceeded to play "Irresistibleand" to be followed by "Hum Hallelujah". Half way through "Hum Hallelujah" the Crowd started clapping in unison and everyone was singing at the top of there lungs.
Pete Wenez stopped after these song and said to the audience "I see a lot of people looking hot over here, like physically hot, so if you're really hot make sure you talk to one of these guys and get some water and get out of the mosh pit". He continued to play one of there biggest hits ever "Sugar, We're Goin Down." And went straight into "Immortals".
Pete stops again and the crowd cheers, he tells the audience a story about his life and says, " sometimes you try something and you f*** it up, and you never try it again. There was this one set of stairs near the head house when I was growing up , and I tried jumping the stairs on my skateboard once. I never tried it again, everytime me and my mum would drive past those stairs I would look at those stairs and I was scared of those stairs. I wish I just skated those stairs because everytime I drove past I would think yeah I skated those stairs. Just because you try something and fail the first time, it doesn't mean you should always try again and again, it doesn't matter if you fail, cause if you end up doing it then people are going to end up imitating it". As the crowd smiled and clapped you knew they we're inspired by his story. Fall Out Boy played four more songs which were "Stay Frosty Royal Milk Tea, Centuries, Save Rock and Roll,The Last of the Real Ones".
The band walked off stage, as the crowd was cheering Pete Wentz came on and played "Young and Menace" on the Grand piano After this Andy Hurley played an epic Drum Solo. Fall Out Boy ran back on stage played "Dance, Dance" followed by "Wilson" these were some of the crowds favorite songs.
The stage went black and the band went of stage, all of a sudden there was a video of two guys in llama outfits and a video plays, the llamas say, "you know I don't think this llama outfits is suitable for children" then says "I agree I don't think this show is suitable for anybody, but seriously this show wasn't half bad no it wasn't all bad, do you know what they call this show know what do they call this show the medium show, well it isn't rare and it certainly isn't well done" as the llamas proceed to throw out T-shirts to the crowd.
Everyone was singing along to the next two songs which were some of Fall Out Boy biggest hits "I Don't Care" and "This Ain't a Scene, It's an Arms Race". And then played "HOLD ME TIGHT OR DON'T", "Grand Theft Autumn/Where Is Your Boy" and "Thnks fr th Mmrs".
Fall Out Boy than played "Champion" and announced that this was there last song for the night and walked off stage.
As lights went out and the Crowd started cheering and clapping. Then Fall Out Boy came back on Stage and said "would you like us to play four songs" the crowd cheered even louder this time. Then Fall Out Boy played "Thriller, Uma Thurman and Light Em Up"
Fall Out Boy asked for the lights turned off and told everyone to get their phones out the audience light up like the night sky. Fall Out Boy finished off the night with a bang and played "Saturday". The crowd were amazed with the show and as they walk out people were saying "wow that was the best show i have seen in my life".
