Editor's Note: Promoters have provided The Courier with free tickets to the Fall Out Boy's April 7 show for review purposes.
Headlining this year's Believers Never Die Tour, Part Deux is multi-platinum selling band Fall Out Boy. After forming in 2001, the band has gone from performing in basements, garages, and old folks homes, to headlining arenas, festivals, and other sold-out venues.
In support of their their latest album, Folie A Deux, out last year, is currently on a world-wide tour, which stops in the Bay Area Tuesday for a show at the San Jose State Event Center.
Also performing on the Believers Never Die Tour is Cobra Starship. With a new album due this year, they promote their go-getter attitude with suave clothes as well as music that gets the blood pumping. Hailing from New York, they bring their East Coast attitude to the west. With their signature "cobra fangs" thrown at the sky, they appeal to a younger crowd as well as the hipster, movers, and shakers.
Next on the list is All Time Low from Maine, With pop-beat, boy-bandish tempos, All Time Low's latest album, So Wrong, It's Right brings their music to the audience with quick starts, catchy riffs, and their boys will be boys etiquette.
Following them is the Los Angeles-based group, Metro Station. With a sound of dance, electro, and synths, Metro Station, with their self titled album, adds a club vibe for this generation to the setlist.
Newly discovered Floridians, Hey Monday, is also accompanying this year's tour. With a female lead singer fronting an all male band, Hey Monday is on the rise with their debut album, Hold on Tight.
Rumor has it that rapper, 50 Cent, will make surprise appearances at some of the upcoming shows.
