The Monumentour Tour Tour Announcement

Alt rock comeback kids Fall Out Boy and Paramore announced recently they are joining forces for a summer tour. The news of the tour escaped a bit early than either band planned, as the announcement video leaked a couple of days ago. Apparently their marketing team lacks the discipline of Mrs. Carter’s. Both bands are coming off successful #1 albums released after long breaks.

The 37 date, 30 city tour kicks off in Hartford at the recently re-branded Xfinity Theatre in Hartford. It will rolling through central Texas in early August, including a stop at the Austin360 Amphitheater. Currently it is scheduled to wrap up on the west coast at the Sleep Train Pavilion, where the name alone suggests the dizzy levels of excitement shows there must generate.

You can pick up Monumentour tickets on our Fall Out Boy page or our Paramore page.

Here’s Paramore’s “Still Into You,” their biggest hit from last year’s self-titled return album. I could have used a Fall Out Boy video, but given a choice between watching Hayley Williams for 3 minutes 41 seconds and not watching Hayley Williams for 3 minutes 41 seconds, I bravely choose the former. In my continuing tradition of pointing out interesting elements of the video in question, note half her hair is pink while the other half is orange-red. Also, for some reason there’s two dudes hanging around. I believe they are among the founding members of the “Please Never Go Solo, Hayley” Club.

Beyoncé crushes the competition this week in a win by a very wide margin. She cracked four digits in this week’s total, a rare feat and one that leaves the competition in the dust… at the bottom of a canyon. The rest of the top five put in what, any other week, would have been exemplary performances, starting off with the debut of countdown newcomer Fall Out Boy.

Fall Out Boy is back from a three year break with an upcoming new album, Save Rock and Roll, and tour to promote it. The album won’t drop until April and the tour doesn’t start up until May, but after a three year wait, fans of the alt rock quartet are eager to get tickets for their return. We will see how much staying power they have over the next few weeks.

Rodeos figured out how to coexist on the countdown this week, even if there’s a bit of a gap. San Antonio gains a spot for #3, and Houston just makes it by securing the #10 spot. One could give Houston a break, as Bruno Mars’ show there seems to have driven his appearance in the #6 spot.

Pearl Jam sneaks into the bottom 5 as fans search for some seats to a single show at Wrigley Field. Those who can’t make the Wrigley Field show do have one other option, you just need to get to London. It’s not as bad as you think, though, it’s London, Ontario. There are unconfirmed plans for a far fuller concert tour in the fall of 2013, so your options may open up with a little patience.
