Fall Out Boy Takes Flight For Release Day Shows

Fall Out Boy is reviving a tried-and-true promotional gimmick for Feb. 6, the day its new Island album, “Infinity on High,” hits stores. The group will play shows in New York, Chicago and Los Angeles in the course of 24 hours, all of which will be documented by MTV.

The first stop will be the network’s New York studio for a performance on “TRL,” which the band will also host. In late afternoon, Fall Out Boy will play Chicago’s House of Blues, and will wrap the day with a set atop a rooftop in downtown Los Angeles.

Fans can gain entry to the shows via radio stations in each market and FallOutBoy.MTV.com. A separate contest at MTVFlight206.com will reward two people the chance to fly with the band throughout the day.

In addition, Fall Out Boy will perform on the first episode of the new show “MTV Live,” premiering commercial free on Feb. 6.
As reported last week, the band scored the highest bow for a band since radio-only titles
joined the Billboard Hot 100 in December 1998 by debuting at No. 2 with
the single “This Ain’t a Scene, It’s an Arms Race.”
