Chicago Cubs: ‘Fall Out Boy’ scheduled to perform at Opening Night


With Opening Night only 10 days away, it was just announced by ESPN Chicago’s Jesse Rogers that Chicago-native band ‘Fall Out Boy’ will perform a three-song set prior to the St. Louis Cardinals and Chicago Cubs game.

Members Pete Wentz, Joe Trohman, Patrick Stump and Andy Hurley have performed during multiple professional sporting events prior to Apr. 5’s showdown between these two N.L. Central rivals. Last year during the 2014 NFL Pro Bowl game in Hawaii, Fall Out Boy took the stage for a six-minute set the featured their hit track ‘My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light Em Up)’.

They also played after the first intermission of the 2015 NHL All-Star game in Columbus, Ohio at the Nationwide Arena.

A couple of members of the band including Pete Wentz wore Chicago Bears gear, showing the ‘Monsters of the Midway’ some much-needed love.

The songs that have been announced for their scheduled performance on Opening Night include: Centuries, Uma Thurman, and Light Em Up (as seen above).

Rogers’ also notes in his tweet that gates will open early at 4:35 central time and batting practice for both teams will happen earlier than normal. This group is just one of the several bands that will rock Wrigley Field during the 2015 season.

In case you missed it, the Foo Fighters (Aug. 29), AC/DC (Sept. 15) and the Zac Brown Band (Sept. 11) will be performing for live at ‘The Friendly Confines’ while the Cubs are on the road. Hopefully inching closer to clinching the N.L. Central or just a playoff-berth in general.

There’s no doubt that the house will be packed, as Jon Lester was announced as the Opening Night starter by skipper Joe Maddon earlier this month. This club has received a ton of hype during the off-season and is still expected to compete this season despite a couple terrible performances during Cactus League play.

And I’m sure some fans will be chanting for Kris Bryant at some point during the game if he just so happens to open up the year with the Triple-A affiliate in Iowa.
