Fall Out Boy’s “Save Rock and Rock Roll” tour brought crowds from around the state to the Liacouras Center Sunday night, where the band performed with Twenty One Pilots and Panic! at the Disco.
Outside the arena, where the doors opened at 5:30 p.m. for the 7 p.m. concert, Sam Tocket, and her friend Megan Presta, both 19, waited to see their “favorite childhood band” for the first time.
However, it wasn’t the main act that brought the two Douglas Education Center students from outside Pittsburgh to Philly.
“I really came to see Twenty One Pilots to be honest,” Presta said.
Farther down the line, University of Pennsylvania students Emma Kaufman, a 21-year-old senior, and Joanna Heinz, a 20-year-old junior, said they were pleased to not have to travel far to see the band.
“We used to listed to Fall Out Boy when we were younger and we were pretty pumped to see they were coming [to Philadelphia],” Kaufman said.
While Heinz said she was excited to hear songs off of the band’s newest album, which is also the tour’s namesake, Kaufman said she wanted to hear the older ones that she listened to when she was younger, including “Sugar, We’re Goin Down.”
The concert is the fourth stop of the 15-city tour continuing through September.
