VEVO Presents: Fall Out Boy – Live from London
Multi-platinum, Grammy-nominated group Fall Out Boy announce today that they will be playing an intimate show at the O2 Academy Islington on November 5th. The show will be filmed exclusively by VEVO, the world’s leading all-premium music video and entertainment platform in partnership with Xperia™ smartphones from Sony.
On release in February, Fall Out Boy’s fifth studio album, Save Rock and Roll stormed the Official UK and US charts at #2 and #1 respectively, and hit the top of the iTunes chart in 27 countries. Save Rock And Roll is the band’s highest charting UK album to date, beating Infinity On High which hit number three in February 2007, and is fast approaching Gold status. Since the announcement of their return on February 4th, the Chicago four-piece have secured multiple #1’s, sold out shows worldwide within seconds and recreated some of their favourite Rock And Roll moments. New single Young Volcanoes impacts at radio the same day as the show and the video can be viewed HERE.
