So tonight I was able to see Fall Out Boy perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live. They performed their new song “Centuries” as well as “Young Volcanoes”, “The Phoenix”, “My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark”, and “Thnks fr th Mmrs”. I swear these men never fail me when it comes to their new songs and live shows. I showed up to get in line at 6:30 a.m because I thought the line would be packed if I showed up later, little did I know that I was completely wrong. It was so hot and sunny outside that I felt like I was going to literally melt. No one showed up in line because who wants to be burning up in the sun for hours? There was only about ten of us in line until it turned 2 p.m and at that moment people began showing up. I wasn’t the first one in line, I was actually the fourth but I was still lucky enough to be in the front row. Unfortunately, I forgot to put sunscreen on my face so now I have a sunburn on my face. (That’s definitely going to hurt in the morning) When they let us go in front of the stage I was so excited, I just wanted the filming of the Jimmy Kimmel show to go by quick. When FOB finally hit the stage I began cheering so loudly that I lost my voice. I waved my arms around, clapped, and sang along to all of their songs. Centuries sounds AMAZING live and I can’t wait to see them perform it again in future shows! I was so bummed out because the security there handed drumsticks and picks to people elsewhere and not the people in the very front. I mean, we were all waiting for over 9 hours in the hot sun, don’t we deserve something? I didn’t let that bother me though because it was still an awesome show!
After the show was over my friend and I headed to the side of the Jimmy Kimmel Live building where people can meet the guests. We didn’t get to meet Joe or Pete because they left without greeting the fans. (I get it though, both men have children to get home to so I’m not mad at all) Then Patrick came out and security held him back so he wouldn’t go to the fans because of safety issues and whatnot. Since Patrick is a total sweetheart he ran to the fans and made sure he high fived every single one of us that were out there. After that my friend and I just walked away and went to the train station so we can head home but on the way there we found Patrick again! Except this time he was inside his car with his wife, I didn’t realize it until my friend told me that he was there. He was so close to us and the only thing in the way was a big fence. He could see us perfectly and hear us so that was the good thing. So I put my thumbs up and said “Awesome job tonight! Great show!” and he put his thumb up as well, smiled, and said something but I couldn’t quite hear what he said. I didn’t take any pictures of this moment because his wife was in the car and I didn’t want to make her uncomfortable or anything. When we waved goodbye at him my friend accidentally took a picture right when he smiled and waved back at us. (The picture was originally really grainy and dark but I tried to fix it.)
Little did I know that this picture would have turned out to be the most adorable thing ever. When we started walking towards the train station again they were exiting the parking lot and we stopped walking so they could exit first. His wife was kind enough to let us go first and we waved goodbye to them again, and Patrick smiled and waved again. Seriously though, tonight was so awesome. Can’t wait to watch their performance on TV tonight!
