After a gloomy morning on Sept. 21, the sun came out just in time for the Fall Out Boy concert at the America’s Cup Pavilion in San Francisco.
People started lining up at 11 a.m. to get the best possible seats for the show. You could hear the crowd’s excitement with expressions of “This is my favorite band!” and “Pete Wentz is the drum god.”
The show began at 7 p.m. opening with Twenty One Pilots, an upcoming band from Ohio. Panic! At the Disco, my personal favorite band, came next and sang all their most popular songs, from “I Write Sins Not Tragedies” to a few of their new songs like “Miss Jackson.” Both bands exceeded my expectations when Twenty One Pilot’s lead singer Tyler Joseph walked across the crowd and Panic! At the Disco’s lead singer Brendon Urie did a backflip off the drummer stage.
Everyone in crowd was going wild for the two bands but people boomed with energy when the long waited Fall Out Boy came on stage. Screaming, cheering and clapping filled everyone’s ears. They started with their new song “Phoenix” getting the crowd pumped for the rest of show.
As it went on the crowd grew restless with energy and started to push closer to the front. People were pushed to the floor and one girl even passed out. Fall Out Boy’s lead singer Patrick Stump stopped the concert to get those who had been pushed down help. He ordered everyone to take three steps back to give those in the front some space. Security guards and fans helped the people off the floor, some even getting to crowd surf. Besides the amazing music this moment was truly an experience because it showed how much Fall Out Boy cares about their fans and focuses on the crowd.
“By far has to be the best concert I have ever been too. The energy was so positive and the crowd was really enthusiastic. Thanks for the memories Fall Out Boy,” said senior Taylor Marlais.
The Fall Out Boy 2013 concert was one of the best experiences I have ever had with the people, atmosphere and musicians who are truly artists.
