Performing a sold out show last Sunday evening at the Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, CA, Fall Out Boy brought the So Much for (2our) Dust Tour to the sunshine state. Cheering fans eagerly took their place in line as tickets were swiftly scanned and excitement reached an all-time high. Ready to let the good times roll, the audience sang in unison to the overhead music as the crew adjusted staging from openers, Daisy GrenadeThe Maine and Jimmy Eat World. There was no doubt that the highly anticipated headliners were going to light it up.

As the intro of “Love From The Other Side” from the band’s 2023 album, So Much (For) Stardust intensified, each band member emerged from behind a flowing red curtain. Unveiling inked drummer Andy Hurley, a yin yang drum kit glided forward. Pyrotechnics and warm toned fireworks ascended to the sky, matching the rhythm with every glowing spark and chest pounding boom. Building on the skillful percussion, powerhouse lead vocalist and guitarist Patrick Stump and multifaceted bassist Pete Wentz brought the heat while the band began to perform “The Phoenix” from their 2013 album, Save Rock And Roll. Pete mesmerized the crowd with a surprise fire-spitting axe, a true Mad Max moment that sent the audience roaring. Bringing the house “down, down”, the band segued into “Sugar, We’re Goin Down” from their 2003 album, From Under The Cork Tree. Far from their televised nights at One Tree Hill’s Tric, the band did not disappoint. Lighting up the venue with their bright showmanship, the quartet also performed a few tour debut songs, “Golden” from their 2007 album, Infinity on High, and “27” from their 2008 album, Folie a Deux. Guitarist Joe Trohman smoothly played his silver embellished guitar, accompanying Patrick’s every melodic strum. The audience began singing the intro of “Grand Theft Autumn/Where Is Your Boy” from the band’s 2003 album, Take This to Your Grave. Thousands of voices harmoniously blending as one, bringing smiles to the faces of each band member.

From fantastically weird stage props of grandeur and witty digital graphics to bubble spheres floating through black and white confetti, the venue was lifted with an energy all its own. Taking to a stage lift within the audience, Pete playfully interacted with fans as he accompanied the band in performing “Dance, Dance” from their 2005 album, From Under the Cork Tree. Performing popular hits, including “Thnks fr th Mmrs” from their 2007 album, Infinity on High, and “Fake Out” from their 2023 album, So Much (For) Stardust, these gentlemen continue to rock their genre with unique quirky style.

Displayed on plush red curtains read the commencing words The End, as the audience disbursed, and the evening came to a close. Leaving the venue with confetti filled hair and stardust moments, concert goers left with only one lyric in mind – “Thanks for the memories.”
