Fall Out Boy, often referred to as FOB, emerged in 2001 as part of a new generation of pop-punk bands and steadily proved itself to be one of the leading groups in the genre. The band’s popularity has increased over the course of its five records, released between 2003 and 2008.
As Fall Out Boy’s popularity has grown, so has the size of the venue its fans fill on tours. The group has graduated from medium-sized clubs and theaters to amphitheaters and arenas. For the 2009 Believers Never Die Part Deux tour, FOB also pulled together an impressive supporting cast of four bands. As a surprise addition, the band also named chart-topping rapper 50 Cent as a special guest for select dates.
