Paramore and Fall Out Boy have teamed up for what they're calling the "Monumentour," which will take them from coast to coast this summer. Punky Danish rockers New Politics will serve as the opener for the tour, including a handful of dates that will feature only Fall Out Boy. Presale tickets go on sale Monday, January 13th, at 10 a.m. local time, while tickets will go on sale to the general public on Friday, January 17th and Saturday, January 18th (depending on the gig) at 10 a.m.

Paramore: A Day in the Life, in Hayley Williams' Own Words

Paramore's most recent video, "Daydreaming," for a track from their 2013 album Paramore, dramatized what it would be like for two lucky fans to fly to England to see one of their concerts. In the clip, the pair sneak backstage for a glimpse of Hayley Williams and co. hanging out in the green room backstage. Paramore have been putting on energetic shows, in which Williams "bounce[s] around stages with an unbridled glee," as Rolling Stone put it.

Meanwhile, Fall Out Boy are apparently enjoying playing together again, after announcing their surprise reunion early last year and putting out a new album, Save Rock and Roll, which contained one of the 100 Best Songs of 2013: "My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up)."

"We wanted something that was really raw," bassist Pete Wentz told Rolling Stone last year about the album. "We still needed something where people felt the same feelings they had when they first listened to Fall Out Boy, but the music couldn't sound like the same music we'd done before. We've never been a band that plays it safe. We could have probably written 'Sugar, We're Going Down' five times, but we never did."

“Madame George”

Van Morrison | 1968

One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music. The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
