Emo rockers Fall Out Boy set to return to Target Center in April

Emo rockers Fall Out Boy will wrap their early 2024 tour when they headline Minneapolis’ Target Center on April 6.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Sept. 15 through Ticketmaster. Neither the promoter nor the venue announced ticket prices. Jimmy Eat World, Hot Mulligan and Carr are also on the bill.

Fall Out Boy emerged from suburban Chicago in 2001 and took their name from a character on “The Simpsons.” After releasing a pair of EPs on the indie label Uprising, they signed to Fueled by Ramen and quickly became one of the emo label’s biggest acts. They played the Warped Tour in 2004 and continued to tour heavily.

They broke through on radio with 2005’s “Sugar, We’re Goin Down,” the first of a string of smashes that include “Dance, Dance,” “This Ain’t a Scene, It’s an Arms Race” and “Thnks fr th Mmrs.” But by the end of the decade, the hits had dried up and the band went on a hiatus.

Fall Out Boy re-emerged in 2013 and found success with a string of singles like “My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up),” “Centuries” and “Uma Thurman.”

The band released their eighth album, “So Much (for) Stardust” in March and found some success with their cover of Billy Joel’s “We Didn’t Start the Fire” with updated lyrics to reflect events that took place since the release of Joel’s original.

Over the past two decades, Fall Out Boy has played more than 20 shows in the area, most recently sharing the bill with Green Day and Weezer at Target Field in August 2021 and headlining Somerset Amphitheater in July.
