The singer performed at Wrigley Field, home of the Chicago Cubs
Fall Out Boy’s Patrick Stump had the honour of singing The US National Anthem in his hometown of Chicago this weekend. Check it out below.
The frontman and ‘American Beauty/American Psycho’ singer opened the World Series game at the legendary Wrigley Field, at the home of the Chicago Cubs.
“They defied expectation multiple times,” Wentz said of the California punks. “When ‘Dookie’ broke I remember thinking ‘this is a band that speaks to me, that sounds like me, that looks like me and they’re played on the radio and MTV. They made an odd kid feel like I had a foothold in pop culture.”
Went proceeded to praise the band’s 2004 album ‘American Idiot’, saying: “It was a great critical response to what was happening in our world, and ‘Boulevard Of Broken Dreams’, can you write a more epic song? There’s a couple but not many.”
Asked if Fall Out Boy would ever collaborate with Green Day, Wentz replied: “They’re definitely at a level where they call the collaborative shots. If they ever called us up we’d definitely answer the phone!”
Fall Out Boy’s concert film, The Boys Of Zummer Tour: Live In Chicago, is out today (October 21) on DVD, Blu-Ray and digital formats.
