Pop-punk hitmakers Fall Out Boy and Paramore will team up for a summer tour that will hit DTE Energy Music Theatre July 8, promoters announced Thursday.
Tickets for the show go on sale at 10 a.m. Jan. 18, with a pre-sale for fans who register here beginning at 10 a.m. Wednesday. Prices are TBA.
The DTE date is part of a 34-date summer trek that kicks off June 19 in Hartford, Conn. Danish rockers New Politics will open on the tour.
Both Fall Out Boy and Paramore released No. 1 albums in 2013. This week, Fall Out Boy’s “Save Rock and Roll” was certified gold with sales of more than 500,000 units, while Paramore’s self-titled set has sold 311,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
Both bands also played multiple concerts in Metro Detroit in 2013. Each played the Fillmore Detroit in May and followed with concerts at the Palace of Auburn Hills — Fall Out Boy in September, Paramore in November.
In an April 2013 interview with The News, Paramore lead singer Hayley Williams commented on both Paramore and Fall Out Boy scoring recent No. 1 albums.
“It’s really a huge win for our whole scene of bands,” she said. “Even though I feel like our two bands are very different, as far as stylistically, we still come from a very similar place, the same sort of neighborhood, and it’s rad to see them winning, too. It’s a good time for people that are into our genre of music.”
