The second part of the M A N I A tour was fully underway now that the entire album is out. It was delayed until Jan. of this year because lead singer Patrick Stump felt it was very rushed. Some of the visuals for songs that were played on the last M A N I A tour last fall were used again, but new ones were added for songs that were not played last time, making it a whole new experience. Along with songs from “M A N I A,” old school Fall Out Boy songs were played such as “Disloyal Order of Water Buffaloes,” “Grand Theft Autumn,” and the classics “Thnks Fr The Mmrs,” and “Sugar, We’re Goin Down.”Towards the end of the show, the boys ran to the back of the arena where two stages were suspended from the ceiling. On one stage, Joe and Andy were set up with their instruments, and on the other was Stump and Pete. The stages were lifted in the air, but raised slowly higher as the boys played more songs. Fans on the floor and everywhere else around the arena were jumping around in their seats and screaming along to all of the words, making it a night to remember.
