Fall Out Boy kick off world tour in California

The Chicago emo quartet play to an enthusiastic sold-out crowd

Fall Out Boy have kicked off their world tour in California.

The Chicago quartet played a sold-out show at the Grove of Anaheim on Friday (January 5) wearing mismatched T-shirts with other band member’s names on them.

The emo punkers blazed through several of their hits including ‘Grand Theft Autumn’ and their current single ’This Ain’t a Scene, It’s An Arms Race’.

Bassist Pete Wentz admitted to the audience that he loves Southern California because the “So Cal girls are so cute”.

Wentz and guitarist Joe Trohman displayed boundless energy throughout the set, jumping around on stage and hurling their guitars in the air.

Fall Out Boy will release their fourth studio album, ‘Infinity On High’, in the UK on February 5 and the US on February 6.
