Rock legends Fall Out Boy brought their headline tour, “So Much For (Tour) Dust,” to NYC’s Forest Hills Stadium on Wednesday evening. The tour is in support of their latest album, So Much (For) Stardust (their first new album in five years), and they brought along fellow rockers Bring Me The Horizon for the ride.

With golden hour upon us, British rock band Bring Me The Horizon took the stage. The five-piece from Sheffield played for an hour with their setlist spanning multiple albums. Drummer Matt Nicholls, keyboardist Jordan Fish, and bassist Matt Kean stood atop a massive riser, looming over guitarist Lee Malia, touring guitarist John Jones, and frontman Oliver Sykes.

The band opened with the new track “AmEN!” followed by “Teardrops” from 2020’s POST HUMAN: SURVIVAL HORROR, followed by “Happy Song” from 2015’s That’s The Spirit. On the floor of the 13,000-capacity venue – I was overjoyed to see how many fans came early to scream along with Oli. And despite the glaring sun overhead, the crowd’s energy did not let up as the band moved into “DiE4u,” “MANTRA,” “Shadow Moses,” and “sTraNgeRs” before playing “Drown” while Oli snaked his way through the crowd during the performance.

While I and the fans around me did not want their set to end, BMTH’s set did have to come to a close as they ended with “LoST,” “Can You Feel My Heart,” and “Throne.”

As sunset began to fall, the stage began to take shape for Fall Out Boy’s performance, as a menacing tree, clownish moon, and a clock took over the left of the stage; as well as a giant orb at the top. Originally hailing from Chicago, the four-piece of Patrick Stump on vocals/guitar, Pete Wentz on bass, Joe Trohman on guitar, and Andy Hurley on drums began their show with the drawback of a red velvet curtain, fireworks (yes, fireworks on the stage) and the song “Love From the Other Side” from So Much (For) Stardust. Things got hot as the second track, “The Phoenix,” was all about fire – from fire exploding from the back of the stage to fire erupting from the end of Pete Wentz’s bass. Things slowed down again when the curtain closed for fan-favorite “Sugar, We’re Goin Down” before they launched into “Uma Thurman” and “A Little Less Sixteen Candles, a Little More ‘Touch Me.’”

The band’s 24-song setlist spanned their eight studio albums – from their debut album, Take This to Your Grave, with “Chicago Is So Two Years Ago” and “Grand Theft Autumn / Where Is Your Boy” to their fourth album Folie à Deux with “Disloyal Order of Water Buffaloes” and “Headfirst Slide Into Cooperstown on a Bad Bet.” 2013’s Save Rock and Roll also got some love with “Just One Yesterday” and “Save Rock and Roll,” while their sophomore album From Under The Cork Tree also got some love with “7 Minutes in Heaven (Atavan Halen)” and “Dance, Dance.”

Gym Class Heroes vocalist Travie McCoy made a special guest appearance, as Fall Out Boy covered Gym Class Heroes tracks “Stereo Hearts” and “Cupid’s Chokehold,” which got the crowd singing along with both Patrick and Travie.

Toward the end of the show, Pete had a talk with a Magic 8 Ball in the sky (the aforementioned orb at the top of the stage) to determine what songs the band played next – prompting them to launch into “I Am My Own Muse” and “27” before telling the crowd “this is normally when we leave and then come back for an encore.” The four-piece skipped the walking off stage part entirely, and instead launched into their four-song encore of “My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up),” “Thnks fr th Mmrs,” Centuries,” and “Saturday” during which streamers erupted, and confetti fell over the crowd.
