After 8 (!) years of waiting, I was finally able to see Fall Out Boy live. And man, they did not disappoint. Their music is, without a doubt, a staple in my life. I have been listening to them since I was a teenager, and they have accompanied me during my tumultuous adult years. To describe this concert as a life-changing milestone would be an understatement, to be honest.
With a mix of the old and new, FOB delivered an amazing and breathtaking performance that had me dizzy and speechless. A truly magical moment was when it started raining during Young Volcanoes, adding to the borderline-religious aura that wrapped the show.
It was an incredibly emotional experience, mostly because every second was perfect, but also because I had my oldest and dearest best friend next to me. We cried during the closer Saturday, a song that holds a special place in our hearts and friendship.
“Oh no, we won’t go, we don’t know when to quit, oh, oh," sang Patrick during the pretty damn astounding live rendition of Save Rock and Roll.
And here’s hoping they never, ever quit.
