Jay Z and Beyonce at the Fall Out Boy show on May 3, 2005 @ Irving Plaza, NYC. The show coincided with the release of From Under the Cork Tree, Fall Out Boy’s first major label release; at the time, Jay Z was CEO & President of the label. From Pete’s blog on the band’s site posted May 4:

what about jay-z and beyonce rocking out to fob? totally one of the few times i have ever felt super starstruck at one of our shows. crazy shit like that only happens in new york…

And here is what Jay Z had to say about the band in an article published in Spin magazine:

“I went to see them at Irving Plaza [in Manhattan],” says Jay-Z. “And everyone knew the words and was singing. It was like a cult following. I watched them and thought, ‘These guys are stars. This is genuine.’”
