Fall Out Boy playing Chicago’s Wrigley Field…sort of

ABC/Fred LeeFall Out Boy is something of a favorite among sports fans thanks to the band’s hit “Centuries,” which became an unlikely sports stadium anthem. 

“I don’t know enough about sports to write a song for it!” frontman Patrick Stump told ABC Radio back in 2015, still, Fall Out Boy went on to play the song at the NHL All-Star Game that year, and at a pre-Super Bowl concert.

Well, this weekend they’ll be singing a different, and more traditional, sports anthem. The band tweeted Tuesday that they’ll be leading the seventh-inning stretch sing-along on “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” during Saturday’s Chicago Cubs game at Wrigley Field.

That night the band is set to play a show in their hometown.  The show was supposed to be a record-release event, but Fall Out Boy’s forthcoming album, Mania, has been pushed back to January 19. 

However, the band is ready to start rolling out songs from Mania. Last week, Fall Out Boy teased a new song, “The Last of the Real Ones.” Well, it’s coming.  The band tweeted on Tuesday that it would be available in North America on Thursday, and available elsewhere on Friday.

Fall Out Boy begins a fall tour October 20 in Cleveland.
