By Bryan McCabe


If there is one thing that you can count on in Wisconsin, it is that you should always expect mother nature to throw us a snowstorm at any time. A late winter storm was no match though for the thousands of fans that filled the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee for the sold out Fall Out Boy show. 

Kicking off the night was up and coming artist CARR. Opening the show with the smooth groove of “Spiral City,” she immediately showcased her incredible vocal prowess, effortlessly gliding between sultry lows and soaring highs. Backed by a tight-knit band that perfectly complemented her every note, CARR commanded the stage with an undeniable confidence and grace. With a voice that effortlessly blends power and vulnerability, CARR took the audience on a captivating journey through love, loss, and self-discovery.

Next up was Hot Mulligan, a band with no shortage of infectious energy or raw talent. Hailing from Michigan, this quintet brought their unique blend of pop-punk and emo to the packed arena of eager fans, delivering a performance that was nothing short of electrifying. Opening with “Drink Milk and Run,” Hot Mulligan wasted no time in grabbing the audience’s attention. The band’s tight musicianship and infectious hooks immediately had the crowd bouncing and singing along. Lead vocalist Tades Sanville’s raw, emotive delivery added depth to the lyrics, drawing listeners in with every word.

Throughout the set, Hot Mulligan showcased their versatility, seamlessly transitioning from anthemic tracks like “*Equip Sunglasses*” to more introspective tunes such as “Bckyrd.” Each song was delivered with precision and passion, showcasing the band’s ability to evoke a range of emotions in their audience.

The legendary Jimmy Eat World was next to take the stage. With over two decades of hits under their belt, Jimmy Eat World proved why they remain one of the most beloved acts in alternative rock. From the moment the lights dimmed and the familiar chords of “A Praise Chorus” rang out, the audience was transported back in time to the early 2000s, when Jimmy Eat World first captured our hearts with their infectious melodies and introspective lyrics. Lead vocalist Jim Adkins’ emotive voice soared through the venue, instantly captivating everyone in attendance.

Throughout the set, guitarist Tom Linton, bassist Rick Burch, and drummer Zach Lind showcased their remarkable chemistry, effortlessly weaving intricate melodies and driving rhythms that served as the backbone of Jimmy Eat World’s sound. Whether they were delivering high-energy rockers like “Pain” or more intimate ballads like “Work,” the band’s musicianship was nothing short of mesmerizing.

As the night drew to a close with the timeless classic “The Middle,” it was clear that Jimmy Eat World had left an indelible mark on Milwaukee. The crowd, united in their love for the band, sang along with every word, their voices blending harmoniously with Adkins’ as they echoed the sentiment of the song’s chorus: “It just takes some time, little girl, you’re in the middle of the ride.”

With an arena bursting with anticipation, the iconic pop-punk powerhouse Fall Out Boy took over the Fiserv Forum, delivering a show that was equal parts explosive energy and heartfelt emotion. Fall Out Boy has solidified their status as one of the most influential bands in the genre, and their performance only served to reinforce that reputation. 

From the moment the opening chords of “Love From the Other Side” reverberated throughout the arena, the crowd erupted into a frenzy of excitement. Lead vocalist Patrick Stump’s powerhouse vocals filled the space, commanding the attention of every single person in attendance. The band wasted no time in diving into their extensive catalog of hits, seamlessly blending old favorites like “Sugar, We’re Goin Down” and “A Little Less Sixteen Candles, a Little More Touch Me” with newer tracks from their latest album. Each song was delivered with precision and passion, showcasing the band’s evolution while still staying true to their signature sound.

Throughout the set, Stump’s charisma and stage presence were undeniable, as he effortlessly commanded the stage with his dynamic vocal range and magnetic personality. Whether he was belting out the anthemic chorus of “My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up)” or delivering a passionately beautiful piano medley to his late friend Casey Benjamin, Stump had the audience hanging on his every word.

As the night drew to a close with the timeless classic “Thnks fr th Mmrs,” it was clear that Fall Out Boy had left an indelible mark on the Staples Center. The crowd, energized and exhilarated, begged for an encore, and the band happily obliged with a blistering rendition of “Saturday,” sending fans into a frenzy.

Braving the snowstorm proved to be a worthwhile decision for the countless fans that showed up to show their love for the bands that night. Each band delivered an incredible performance that was sure to leave everyone begging for more.
