By  | 

Surprise! Fall Out Boy have dropped an EP to celebrate their biggest homecoming show at Chicago’s own Wrigley Field September 8th. The band wrote:

“This is our love letter to Chicago. Lake Effect Kid EP out now Ex-US might be a sec until you see the EP up

16 days until we’re back to the city we grew up in, playing the biggest headline show we’ve ever played before in Chicago. Still so unreal that we’re playing Wrigley Field on September 8th 😳 here’s a vid with a glimpse at all the madness throughout the years go get your tickets to the show so we can continue getting lost in this crazy dream with you

We decided to start the party early by opening up the M A N I A Experience before the show starts on Saturday. We teamed up with so many incredible artists to help bring the album to life in a completely different lens, so get your cameras ready. There will be 12 different spaces for you to walk through (everything from a giant purple wave, to a room with music boxes filled with unreleased remixes and covers, + more). Frosty and Royal Tea will be there, in the fur, ready for some photo ops. Also gonna have a pop up shop with limited edition merch specific to the experience and Wrigley, giveaways & other fun along the way. Who knows what could happen 🤫

The M A N I A Experience will be open on September 8th and 9th. Tickets will be free & you can RSVP starting on Tuesday, but more info coming soon.

The M A N I A Tour part 2 starts next week in Long Island, see your faces soon:”

We will be updating as soon as new details are released!
