Fall Out Boy To Headline Upcoming North American Tour

For those of you who are dedicated players of the Madden Football videogaming franchise, Fall Out Boy's 'Dance Dance' has probably been engrained into the darkest depths of your brain. The Chicago-based mall-punksters were featured on the soundtrack of the latest edition of the game, and it seems like the single is played nearly everytime the ball is dead or during a huddle.

Now, with a kick-off show in Albany, New York this March, Fall Out Boy will attempt to conquer the hearts and minds of non-videogamers with a 40-market tour. This will be the band's first marquee event.

Bassist Pete Wentz explains the band's growth in popularity:

"We've gradually played in front of 50 to 8,000 people due to demand. We wanted to play arenas at this point to give everybody a chance to see us, but our next U.S. tour after this will probably be a small club tour."

All forthcoming tour dates are available at the band's website.
