Fall Out Boy and Paramore join forces for one of the summer’s biggest tours – Monumentour. The tour was Fall Out Boy’s idea, but Paramore’s bassist Jeremy Davis has been credited as coming up with the tour’s name. As part of their co-headlining tour, both bands will spend an equal amount of time on stage. Fans may even be treated to a few collaborative performances.
Fall Out Boy plans on topping their incredibly successful 2013 tour, but will take a new approach during this year’s tour. The band promises all new looks and even bigger stunts. Because the two bands are touring amphitheaters, they plan on pulling out all the stops for this summer tour. Fans can expect both bands to give their biggest and best performances yet.
Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz expects some friendly competition with Paramore, but the fans can expect nothing less than a great time. Both bands have had their own fair shares of up and downs throughout their careers. After retiring into obscurity at the end of the ‘00s, Fall Out Boy returned in 2013 with their immensely successful comeback album Save Rock and Roll. Paramore also returned in 2013 with a comeback album and their first record since members Zac and Josh Farro left.
Fall Out Boy first began their career in 2001 in Chicago, but it wasn’t until 2005 that the band gained commercial success with the singles “Dance, Dance” and “Sugar, We’re Going Down.” Their follow-up album in 2007 peaked at number one on the Billboard 200 and sold 260,000 copies during its first week.
Shortly after the group formed in 2004, Paramore released All We Know is Falling, the band’s debut album, which included the singles “Pressure,” “Emergency,” And “All We Know.” In 2007, the band released their second album Riot!, which produced the mega-hit “Misery Business” as well as “Hallelujah,” “Crushcrushcrush,” and “That’s What You Get.”
