Fall Out Boy Plan Full "Folie" Concert in Chicago

November 19, 2008 5:41 PM ET

Fall Out Boy will perform their new Folie A Deux in its entirety at the Chicago Theatre on December 2nd. The performance will then be televised by Fuse on the night of the album's release on December 16th. If you happen to live in the Windy City, tickets for the concert go on sale November 28th and cost a mere $10. The band originally planned on releasing Folie on Election Day, but opted to delay the album's release so that it wouldn't be overshadowed by the historic election. Bassist and lyricist Pete Wentz is due to become a father any day, as wife Ashlee Simpson is currently attempting to induce labor.

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
