Fall Out Boy And Paramore Join Forces On 'Monumentour' The two titans of teen angst will team up to launch a co-headlining tour with a stop at Jones Beach on June 21: TIX: http://MONUMENTOUR.jonesbeach.com
Had the teaser video not leaked early, it would have been a pretty sweet surprise — but we're willing to bet fans of Fall Out Boy and Paramore are still pretty pumped this morning ... because the two iconic acts are going on tour together this summer.
The co-headlining trek — aptly dubbed Monumentour — is set to kick off June 19 in Hartford, Connecticut, and will make stops in 30 cities across North America with a stop at Jones Beach on June 21.
The tour was accidentally announced Wednesday night, when a video featuring FOB and Paramore (minus proud new papa Jeremy Davis, who was represented in cardboard cut-out form) began making the rounds ... much to the consternation of Paramore frontwoman Hayley Williams, who, in her frustrations, invoked the name of Beyoncé. Dang, girl. Despite being two of the genre's biggest acts, up until now, FOB and Paramore have never toured together ... no matter how desperately their fanbases demanded it. And though both acts have been established for a decade (or longer), this certainly doesn't seem like a nostalgia tour: Both bands are coming off rather remarkable 2013s, in which they each released successful comeback albums, scored hit singles, and launched large-scale arena tours.
Fall Out Boy came together in Illinois in 2001. In 2003, the band inked a deal with Fueled By Ramen and released their debut album, Take This To Your Grave. The band played a handful of dates on Warped Tour in 2004, and also landed a slot at South by Southwest. The band hit pay-dirt with their sophmore effort, From Under The Corked Tree, in 2005. It debuted at #9 on the Billboard Top 200, selling over 68,000 copies in it’s first week of sales. The album quickly went double-platinum and produced three hit singles, including “Sugar, We’re Goin’ Down”, which was one of the biggest songs of the decade. The album earned the band their first Grammy Award nomination for Best New Artist. The band won the Viewer’s Choice Award at the 2006 MTV Video Music Awards. Fall Out Boy toured on the Nintento Fusion Tour in 2005 alongside Panic! At The Disco, Motion City Soundtrack, The Starting Line, and Boys Night Out. In 2007, Fall Out Boy released their third album, Infinity On High. The highly-fob_save_rock_and_roll-1024x1024anticipated album debuted at #1 on both the Billboard Top 200 and Billboard Rock Albums. The band released five singles from the album, including the smash hit “Thnks fr th Mmrs”. The album went on to achieved platinum status just one month after it’s release, selling over 260,000 units in it’s first week of sales. The band toured with support from All-American Rejects and Hawthorne Heights, and headlined the 2007 Honda Civic Tour. The band quickly returned to the studio and released Folie à Deux in 2008. After embarking on a massive headlining tour, the band went on hiatus in 2010. Fall Out Boy resurfaced this past year with their new album, Save Rock and Roll, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 on April 12, 2013. It sold over 154,000 copies in it’s first week of sales and the lead single, “My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light ‘Em Up)” has already gone triple-platinum. The album ranked at #47 on TheRockRevival.com’s Top 50 Rock Albums of 2013.
Paramore broke onto the scene in 2005 with their debut album, All We Know Is Falling. The album hit #30 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart, and Paramore toured on part of the Vans Warped Tour in the summer of 2006. In 2007, the band returned to the studio for their sophomore effort, Riot!. The album debuted at #20 on the Billboard Top 200. In 2008, Alternative Press Magazine readers voted Paramore “Best Band of 2007″, and at the 50th Annual Grammy Awards, the band was nominated for the Grammy Award for Best New Artist. In November 2008, Paramore contributed their smash hit single, “Decode”, to the soundtrack of the blockbuster film Twilight. After releasing their first live album shortly after, Paramore returned to the studio and teamed up with renowned producer Rob Cavallo (Green Day, Goo Goo Dolls, My Chemical Romance, Kid Rock, Dave Matthews Band) for their third full-length LP, Brand New Eyes. The disc debuted at #2 on the Billboard Top 200, and sold over 175,000 copies in it’s first week of sales. The album won the award for Best Album at the 2010 Kerrang! Awards.

The Reading Festival is the original and the world's oldest popular music festival still in existence. It has had various musical phases over the years, including a variety of genres, including rock, alternative, indie, punk and metal since it's arrival in 1971.
The festival typically has the following stages:
Main stage – major rock, indie, metal and alternative acts. NME/Radio 1 stage – less well-known acts, building up to an alternative headline act. Dance tent – dance music acts, previously sharing a day with the Lock Up stage, now a stand-alone 3 day stage. Lock Up Stage – underground punk and hardcore acts. Due to demand, from 2006 this stage took up two days rather than previous years where it was only one day. Festival Republic stage (formerly known as the Carling stage) – acts with less popular appeal and breakthrough acts. 1Xtra Stage - new stage for 2013 that stages Hip-Hop, RnB and Rap artists. Alternative tent – comedy and cabaret acts plus DJs. BBC Introducing Stage – Typically unsigned/not well known acts. (Formerly known as the Topman Unsigned Stage at the Leeds site).
