“This is literally our first rodeo,” were the first words uttered by Fall Out Boy bassist, Pete Wentz at RodeoHouston this Sunday but both the crowd and the band’s set proved otherwise. When you think of rodeo performances, Fall Out Boy probably isn’t the first name that comes to mind but after their first appearance that might change.
FOB was welcomed back to Houston by 71,321 eager fans who sang along to songs old and new, tracks that included “Sugar, We’re Going Down,” “Centuries,” “My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark,” “I Don’t Care,” and the closing track “Thnks Fr Th Mmrs.” The band’s guitarist Joe Trohman was not able to appear in Houston so one of their buddies, Josh filled in on guitar.
Sunday night was definitely a unique night both for the rodeo and for Fall Out Boy but in the end it was one of the only good excuses for leaving the house in such bad weather and mutton bustin’ gained some new fans in FOB. (see Pete Wentz’ instagram post below.)
