Some might find it hard to believe, but Chicago product Fall Out Boy waited 17 years to headline their hometown Wrigley Field.
Apparently a highlight of the show came when the band, which is touring with Machine Gun Kelly and L.I.F.T., sang “Lake Effect Kid” off the band’s just released three-song eponymous EP. The song is about growing up in Chicago.
Fall Out Boy brings its Mania tour to Tucson Arena on Wednesday, Sept. 26. It’s a safe bet that “Lake Effect Kid” will not resonate as much in Tucson as it did in Chicago. Not many people here have a concept of lake effect, the harsh, cold winds that come off the Great Lakes, often bringing with it awesome snow storms. That rarely happens in Chicago, but the winds are a real thing.
Wednesday’s show at the arena, 260 S. Church Ave., starts at 7 p.m. Tickets are $28 to $68 through ticketmaster.com.
The American leg of Fall Out Boy’s Mania tour follows extensive touring throughout Europe and Asia.
The U.S. tour runs through mid-October.
