, Staff

Its still the middle of winter but Fall Out Boy and Paramore have given their fans reason to be excited for the summer. The two pop-punk rock favorites will join forces for a co-headlining summer tour that will stop in Massachusetts for a night at the Xfinity Center (formerly the Comcast Center) in Mansfield on Sunday, June 22. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $20 to $60, will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Live Nation. Opening each of the shows on the “Monumentour” tour will be rising rockers New Politics.

After a 3-year hiatus, Fall Out Boy reunited last year and released a new album entitled Save Rock and Roll. The band’s seventh studio album and first since 2008’s Folie a Deux debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 after its release in May. Produced by Butch Walker, it features guest appearances from Elton John, Courtney Love, Big Sean and Foxes. Save Rock and Roll has been powered by hit single “My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up)”, as well as follow-up singles and “The Phoenix” and “Alone Together”.

Paramore continues to tour in support of their latest self-titled album. Released in April, the band’s fourth studio effort and follow-up to 2009’s Brand New Eyes debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200. Produced by Grammy-nominated producer Justin Medal-Johnson (Beck, Tegan and Sara), Paramore features singles “Now” and “Still Into You”.

Fall Out Boy and Paramore will launch the “Monumentour” tour at the Xfinity Theatre (formerly the Comcast Theatre) in Hartford, Connecticut on Thursday, June 19. They’ll also stop in New Hampshire for a show at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion in Gilford on Monday, June 30.
