By Randy J. Klodz

In what is sure to be a huge event, Chicago’s pop-punk darlings Fall Out Boy is ready to bring its popular arena rock tour to Allstate Arena on Oct. 20.

Fall Out Boy—which includes Patrick Stump (vocals), Joe Trohman (guitar), Pete Wentz (bass, vocals) and Andy Hurley (drums)—is on tour in support of its latest release “Infinity on High” which hit stores in February.

Fall Out Boy first drew the commercial eyes of millions of fans worldwide with the 2005 album “From Under the Cork Tree,” and its most notable, and catchy singles “Dance, Dance” and “Sugar, We’re Going Down.” Successful tours and an ever-expanding legion of fans have turned these boys from Chicagoland into megastars.

From “Infinity on High,” the latest release, fans instantly gravitated toward the album’s initial single “This Ain’t a Scene, It’s an Arms Race” and the rest is history. “Infinity on High” is another hit, and the band’s arena tour shows that the band is as big as ever.

Allstate Arena is at 6920 N. Mannheim Rd. in suburban Rosemont. Tickets for this all-ages show are listed for $30 each with showtime slated for 7 p.m. Rock bands Gym Class Heroes, Cute is What We Aim For, and fellow Chicago-natives For more info on Fall Out Boy log on to www.falloutboyrock.com.
