fobblink @AndyShore Every single person that knows me questioned that fact I was seeing Fall Out Boy. @MattSilver even thought twice about extending the invite for the ticket, knowing my distaste for FOB. There is no chance I would have sat through them, if not for the promise of Blink 182 after. So how do I feel after seeing my first Fall Out Boy concert? Like their fans are the lowest common denominator of music fan.

 

It boggles my mind how a fan base can be so fanatical about a group of grossly untalented musicians. Nothing they do is impressive. It just goes to show that the general music public will eat up anything that is easy to single along to that has a simple melody. Which leads me to believe that all you have to do to be famous is have good marketing and production.

 

Patrick Stump’s voice usually struggles in a live setting, and while not good by any stretch of the imagination, was not horrible at First Midwest Bank Ampitheatre. His banter was almost even amusing, as he attempted to sing Kanye West’s “Homecoming” in honor of them playing in front of 30,000 people in their hometown. Speaking of banter, Pete Wentz loves the sound of his own voice. At one point, he dedicated a song to his wife, changing the name of the song from “I Slept With Someone in Fall Out Boy and All I Got Was This Stupid Song Named After Me” to “…and All I Got Was a Kid Named Bronx.”
