Fall Out Boy -- Return To Australia & New Zealand In 2009

30 OCTOBER 2008 - It will be folie à plusieurs when Fall Out Boy return in February '09 for their largest Australian and New Zealand tour to date! Fall Out Boy will perform in arenas in Perth, Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Auckland. South Australian fans are also in for a treat as Fall Out Boy confirm they will perform in Adelaide for the first time ever.

Fall Out Boy will return hot on the heels of the release of their fifth album Folie à Deux (released December 13 through Universal Music). 'I Don't Care' - the first taste of what's to come from Folie à Deux - has reignited the Fall Out Boy flame in 2008 as it climbs the charts around the world. Folie à Deux sees Fall Out Boy at their finest. From pop punk gems on one end of the spectrum, to their slower defining moments on the other, Folie à Deux is sure to find a place in all music fans' collections. Featuring Deborah Harry, Elvis Costello and production from Pharrell, Folie à Deux will take Fall Out Boy to a new level.

Folie à Deux follows the release of 2007's album Infinity On High which saw Fall Out Boy truly take to the world stage. Selling over 2 million copies worldwide, Infinity On High became Fall Out Boy's first #1 US record, also landing at #1 in New Zealand and #4 in Australia. Spawning four hit singles, Infinity On High picked up Kerrang!, MTV Video Music and MuchMusic awards along the way.

Last here in 2007, Fall Out Boy illustrated why they're no flash in a pan, with two sold out tours, and live performances that left fans in awe.

"The power of pop punk - set to change the world." Rave Magazine

"With the after-taste of FOB still lingering, it's uncertain whether anyone can ever get enough." yourGigs
