Fall Out Boy Delivers Explosive Set at Honda Center in Anaheim

3 Mins read

It’s safe to say that whether this was your 10th time seeing Fall Out Boy or your first time, they sound at their best and their show at the Honda Center was all the proof anyone needed. The stage was full of flames, fireworks, and a flamethrower bass guitar – and that was all within the first 15 minutes of Fall Out Boy taking the stage! Let’s first set the scene for what led up to this explosive set!

Daisy Grenade

It was 6:30pm on a Monday night when Daisy Grenade took the stage. In typical SoCal fashion you’d expect not many seats to be filled yet as the headliner didn’t go on for a solid two and a half hours but the arena was already filling up and ready to be hype.

The Maine

The Maine took to the arena stage next. Can we just talk about how they owned that whole room during their set? They were meant to perform on a stage like that for a crowd that large. They humbly talk often about their “luck” and how lucky they are to be on a tour bill like this but after seeing them at their highest high to date, it’s clear to see luck plays no part in it. The Maine deserves their flowers and it was definitely earned. They opened their set with their new song “Blame” from their most recent album; self-titled “The Maine.” There is a catchy little clap that happens in the chorus of this song, and to see the smiles on their faces when a whole arena of people did the claps without prompt was seemingly such a proud moment for them I’m sure. Following Blame is one of their biggest radio hits, “Sticky.” They closed their set with another radio hit banger, “Loved You A Little.

Jimmy Eat World

Right before Jimmy Eat World took the stage, I realized some of their biggest fans were front and center barricade. The lights dropped, they came out, and their fans went wild as they performed A Praise Chorus. Jimmy Eat World felt like the perfect calm before the storm… pun intended. Their setlist is full of bangers like Hear You Me, Sweetness, and a real classic, The Middle, on top of other fan favorites like Bleed American and Pain. You didn’t have to be a die hard fan like the barricade crowd to still have a blast during their set.

Fall Out Boy

The moment everyone had been waiting for was finally here, the lights dimmed and Fall Out Boy’s version of We Didn’t Start The Fire started to play through the speakers. The arena starts a roar of cheering and singing along with anticipation rising. The song ends and the spoken word song with words by Ethan HawkeThe Pink Seashell begins. This crowd knows what that means, Patrick Stump, Pete Wentz, Joe Trohman, and Andy Hurley are on their way to the stage. Patrick, Pete, and Joe walk out on stage to start playing Love From The Other Side and the curtains to be back of the stage open from the middle to allow Andy and his drum set to slide out to the middle of the stage. This literally explosive song was the perfect start to their set with fireworks going off frequently.

It’s safe to say their set isn’t for the faint of heart because these fireworks indoors are booming!

A real highlight of the tour is that Fall Out Boy has special Magic 8 Ball songs each night that vary from night to night. Some nights are extra lucky to get two Magic 8 Ball songs. Anaheim received a real treat of two songs. Song number one was 7 Minutes In Heaven(Atavan Halen) from From Under The Cork Tree. The real surprise of the night was that for Magic 8 Ball song number two they brought out Gabe Saporta and VickyT from Cobra Starship to do Good Girls Go Bad! Considering Cobra Starship’s relatively quiet years, this was a massive surprise for this Anaheim crowd. They closed out the night with Saturday, a long time fan favorite part of the night.
