Fall Out Boy headline star-studded LA event

Pharrell Williams also plays Hennessy Artistry finale

Fall Out Boy and Pharrell Williams headlined a star-studded event at Paramount Studios in Hollywood last night (October 10).

The concert was the final stop of the 14 night Hennessy Artistry tour series, which took place this year in New York City, Miami, Washington DC, Atlanta, Chicago, Las Vegas, San Francisco and Los Angeles.

DJs Steve Aoki and Felix da Housecat spun tunes throughout the evening for a crowd that included Datarock and actors David Arquette and Vin Diesel.

Pharrell took the stage dressed casually in a red baseball cap and T-shirt.

The trend-setting producer and rapper remarked, “there are just too many pretty girls standing around,” before inviting several of them up on stage to bump and grind with him during songs including ‘Rockstar’ and ‘Lapdance’.

“I like what this event is trying to do by bringing different types of artistry together,” Pharrell told NME.COM before his set. “It’s great to play with a band like Fall Out Boy.”

Fall Out Boy took the stage later than expected around midnight, by which time the crowd had thinned out.

“Everybody knows LA crowds suck so we’ll just play over everybody talking,” said bassist Pete Wentz, as several people mingled during their set.

The band ran through songs from their recent album ‘Infinity On High’, including ‘The Carpal Tunnel Of Love’ and ‘This Ain’t A Scene It’s An Arms Race’, as well as a brief cover of Sonny & Cher‘s ‘I Got You Babe’.
