FOB are masterful when it comes to commanding a stage and here on this live date they perform each song as if their lives depended on it. Opening with their nostalgic throwback hit “Sugar We’re Going Down,” Patrick Stump keeps the crowd dazzled with his soulful voice, while FOB play energetic, hard rocking tunes off their most recent release, along with a bounty of hit singles toboot.
Culling from their uber successful American Beauty/American Psycho, a lovable album with an evolved, electronic, and generally radio friendly sound, between new songs such as “Uma Thurman” and “Irresistible,” FOB’s diverse 17-song set list is also chock full of cuts from their expansive discography.
After heading into "Irresistible", "The Phoenix", the brilliant "A Little Less Sixteen Candles" and both "Thriller" and "Alone Together", FOB light the fuse laying in wait under the packed audience with the firebrand "This Ain't A Scene, It's An Arms Race". "Immortals" bleeds right into their frenetic hit “Dance, Dance”, before "American Beauty/American Psycho" and new track "Uma Thurman" ate brought to the fore.
The pulsating "Thnks Fr Th Mmrs" is next, which is followed by "I Don't Care", new track "Centuries", before returning to the stage for a two song encore. Bringing the entire show to a close with the stunningly full on, empowered, always-fantastic-to-hear "My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light ‘Em Up)” and then “Saturday", FOB's 'The Boys of Zummer Tour 2015' was as exhausting to watch on Blu-ray as it was most likely to have been there - and that's saying something! This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.85:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs, and comes with the Bonus Feature of three (3) new Music Videos: "Centuries", "Uma Thurman" and "Irresistible".
