Fall Out Boy to perform Joe Biden pre-inauguration concert
The line-up for We The People, a virtual pre-inauguration concert happening next week, has just been announced.
Chicago pop-punk kings Fall Out Boy are set to play the event, with other names on the varied bill including will.i.am, James Taylor, Carole King and more. Hosted by Keegan-Michael Key and Debra Messing, the show will take place on January 17 – just a few days before Joe Biden is inaugurated into the White House on January 20.
Of course, Fall Out Boy have a long history with Joe Biden – so long, in fact, that it even pre-dates bassist/lyricist Pete Wentz’ birth. See, if you read Kerrang!’s 20 things you probably didn’t know about Pete Wentz, you’ll have found out that the musician’s parents, Roy and Dale, actually met on Joe Biden’s campaign trail – when Joe represented Delaware in the U.S. Senate.
There’s even a photo of the future U.S. president holding baby Pete!
Anyway, grab your tickets for We The People – which also raises money for the Biden Inaugural Committee – below.
