Fall Out Boy tease more UK shows at tiny Camden comeback gig

Pete Wentz crowd surfs at climax of two-hour set

Fall Out Boy yesterday (February 26) played their first UK comeback show at Camden’s tiny Underworld venue.

Stripping away their usual, elaborate stage production, the Chicago band – who officially went ‘on hiatus’ in 2010 – played a career-spanning selection of fan favourite tracks in a near two-hour set. It included a medley of lesser-played tracks Honorable Mention’, ‘America’s Suiteharts’, ‘Lake Effect Kid’, ‘Alpha Dog’ and ‘Calm’. Latest single ‘My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light ‘Em Up)’ also got an airing.

The capacity crowd, which contained all members of You Me At Six, were in celebratory mood. The same can be said for the band: Patrick Stump and Pete Wentz declared London their “second home”, and hinting at more UK dates to come. “We’ll be back over for Reading and Leeds, or maybe before… potentially,” said Wentz. Both Wentz and Stump spoke out about the “transformation” that they had whilst playing as a band, as well as the reason behind their return.

The band finished on typical set-closer ‘Saturday’, which saw Wentz crowd surfing during the final chorus.
