Fall Out Boy talk touring with Panic! at the Disco
But despite their legion of long-time fans with so many fond memories of their noughties hits, Pete Wentz revealed to MTV News that they’re keen to remake the present, rather than rehash the past, hence why they chose “like-minded” Panic! to join them for their run of gigs.
“For this tour, the arena tour in the US, we wanted like-minded artists; so for Panic to be coming out and doing something that's a little bit different and doing rock music the way they are now, is awesome,” dished Wentz.
“And bringing out Twenty One Pilots, it's really been about creating a great rock show.
“Rock music has always thrived in arenas, and that's what this tour is supposed to be,” he continued.
“It will be our first time getting back out to do that, having the fun show that's a bit bigger ... you should come out to it; it'll be fun.”
The Panic! boys are also looking to give fans a taste of some of their brand new material on the tour, with Brendon Urie revealing they’re “really excited” to be able to perform some fresh jams from their upcoming album ‘Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die!’ for their fans.
“We've done a couple rehearsals already, we're going to be playing a few new songs, like, I'd say about three at most,” the frontman told MTV News.
“We're really excited. We've been working on the songs for a year and a half, and we can't wait to show people everything. This is the beginning of something.”
