Fall Out Boy and Wiz Khalifa have announced plans to join forces for a 40+ city summer tour. The rock veterans and rap favorite will bring their “Boys of Zummer” co-headlining tour to New England for a pair of performances in June. The tour will first stop in Massachusetts for a night at the Xfinity Center in Mansfield on Sunday, June 14. Tickets for the concert, which range in price from $35.50 to $85.25, will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Live Nation.

Following the show in Massachusetts, Fall Out Boy and Wiz Khalifa will return to New England for a performance at the Xfinity Theatre in Harford, Connecticut on Friday, June 26. Fall Out Boy will also swing through Maine for a headlining show of their own at Darling’s Waterfront Pavilion in Bangor on Saturday, June 20. Hoodie Allen will open all shows on the tour.

Fall Out Boy will be touring in support of their forthcoming album, American Beauty/American Psycho. The band’s sixth studio effort, which follows their 2013 reunion release Save Rock and Roll, is set for release on January 20. The album features lead single “Centuries”, which was recently certified platinum.

In a recent interview with Digital Spy, bassist Pete Wentz described the recording process for American Beauty/American Psycho. “The way this album worked is everyone worked on the things that were their strengths in order to streamline the process and make it become a little bit faster,” he said. “It was like best idea wins, when the title track got written and it was a great song, a lot of it became the concept for the album.”

Wiz Khalifa continues to tour in support latest album, Blacc Hollywood. The Pittsburgh native’s third major label studio album debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 after its release last August. Among the many special guests, the album includes collaborations with Snoop Dogg, Nas, Rick Ross, Nicki Minaj, Curren$y and Jeezy. Blacc Hollywood features singles “Stayin Out All Night”, “Promises” and “So High”.

After its release, Khalifa called the new album his best work in an interview with USA Today. “The thing about Blacc Hollywood is everything I’m talking about has been very important to me right now,” he said. “I’m really passionate about it, and you can just feel the passion through the music.”

Hoodie Allen, who recently performed a headlining show of his own at Boston’s Paradise Rock Club, released his debut album People Keep Talking in October.
