Everybody’s favourite Illinois alt-rock foursome, Fall Out Boy have finally announced their return to the UK today as they embark on an eleven date tour of Europe. Only a small handful of the dates make it onto UK soil and of course it’s not until the beginning of 2018, but with brand new, and seventh, studio album ‘MANIA’ set for release on the 19th of January, these shows will no doubt pack a punch and even be the first insight into what the new record is like. The European dates on the 2018 MANIA tour are as follows:

11th of January 2018 – Electric Brixton / London, England

27th of March 2018 – Birmingham Arena / Birmingham, England

28th of March 2018 – Motorpoint Arena / Cardiff, Wales

29th of March 2018 – The O2 / London, England

3rd of April 2018 – Zenith / Paris, France

4th of April 2018 – AFAS Live / Amsterdam, Netherlands

6th of April 2018 – Max-Schmelling-Halle / Berlin, Germany

7th of April 2018 – Zenith / Munich, Germany

10th of April 2018 – Mitsubishi Electric Halle / Dusseldorf, Germany

12th of April 2018 – Forest Nationa / Brussels, Belgium

Despite only four of the dates being held inside the UK, Fall Out Boy have amassed a reputation as an outstanding live act and with a discography as strong as there’s, catching either one of these is a must for all fans. Tickets go on sale on the 24th of November at 9am… so good luck. Alongside the announcement of the tour came the video for the brand new, calypso flavoured single ‘Hold Me Tight Or Don’t’, and you can find it right here. This may well be one of the best tracks FOB have released in years with such a fun and vibrant feel, showcasing Patrick’s vocals wonderfully and generally holding a lighter feel than some of their previous darker, more obscure material.
