CONCERT REVIEW: Fall Out Boy Play Career-Spanning Set During Ecstatic Amsterdam Show

It’s been a hot minute since Fall Out Boy played a headliner show on Dutch soil. The band did play with Green Day as direct support for the Hella Mega Tour that took place last summer, but for the band’s last headliner show, we have to go back to the tour surrounding their 2018 album M A N I A.

Together with PVRIS and nothing, nowhere., Fall Out Boy took on Europe to play some big clubs and arena’s and The Netherlands was no exception. Since the release of their 2015 album American Beauty/American Psycho, the band have played and sold out the AFAS Live in Amsterdam, with a capacity of 6.000 fans, which sold out months in advance.

Even though the tour takes place in order to support the release of the band’s most recent album So Much (For) Stardust, Fall Out Boy must have realised that if you play a headliner show in a country once every 4-5 years, the fans would be eager to hear a career-spanning set, rather than a set heavily focused on the new release. As a result, Fall Out Boy played songs from all eras, with 3-4 songs being played from every album before their hiatus.

In addition to their musical performance, Fall Out Boy delivered a visual spectacle that was unique. Behind the members on the stage, the band hung a huge curtain, which opened several times throughout the performance with a new visual display, which reached its climax when a huge inflatable dog graced the stage, singing along to ‘This ain’t a scene, it’s a goddamn arms race’. The band’s attention to detail in their stage design was a testament to their creative prowess. Fall Out Boy will always be unique in their stylings and this further proved it. Alongside the stunning decor were the usual suspects pyrotechnics, confetti cannons, and a mesmerizing light show to further captivate the 6.000 ecstatic fans.

Despite the years that have passed since their last headliner show in the Netherlands, Fall Out Boy demonstrated that they’ve lost none of their on-stage energy. It was evident that the chemistry and camaraderie among the band members remained as strong as ever, resulting in a show that was not just a musical performance but a true experience for their dedicated fanbase.

Fall Out Boy‘s triumphant return to the Netherlands was a testament to their enduring popularity and their ability to put on a show that leaves a lasting impression. For fans who had eagerly awaited their return, it was a night of nostalgia, sing-alongs, and a reaffirmation of their unwavering loyalty to a band that continues to push the boundaries of creativity in both their music and stage presence. With this performance, Fall Out Boy once again proved that they are not just a band; they are a force of nature in the world of rock and pop music.

Lovato had the following to say about the upcoming album: “With ‘REVAMPED’, I wanted to pay homage to the songs that resonated the most with fans and played a big role in my career by breathing an exciting new life into them. 

“Creating this project has been incredibly fun and allowed me to express my passion for rock music in a new way, and I feel so much closer to my older music because of it. I can’t wait for everyone to hear more.” 

Måneskin rocked the stage with their brand new track HONEY (ARE U COMING?).

Bassist Victoria De Angelis had the following to say about the song: “We wrote the song right after the tour, we still had a lot of energy from the touring and the travelling. We wrote it in between London and LA. We’re really happy with the result and we think it’s something quite new for us.”  said: “We wrote the song right after the tour, we still had a lot of energy from the touring and the travelling.
