Fall Out Boy make their own version of viral game Flappy Bird

Fall Out Bird looks set to be available by the end of this week, pending approval

Fall Out Boy are set to launch their own version of the viral game Flappy Bird after the original game was removed from app stores by its creator.

The band announced Fall Out Bird yesterday (February 10) via Twitter, writing that the game would be available later this week, “as soon it’s approved”. “Shoutout to OG Flappy Bird, RIP”, added the band.

The band also tweeted, “Rome wasn’t built in a day, but this game was. in the spirit of Fall Out Boy Trail, we bring you #FallOutBird”. Fall Out Boy Trail was a 2009 version of Oregon Trail, an educational video game used in North American schools.

The band will embark on a UK arena tour in March, starting at Cardiff’s Motorpoint Arena, also visiting Birmingham, Manchester, Newcastle and Glasgow, with a show at London’s Wembley Arena on March 20.

Fall Out Boy will play:

Cardiff Motorpoint Arena (March 15)
Birmingham NIA (16)
Manchester Phones 4 U Arena (17)
London Wembley Arena (20)
Newcastle Metro Radio Arena (21)
Glasgow The SSE Hydro (22)
