WRIGLEYVILLE — Fall Out Boy is coming back to Chicago to say thanks for the memories.

Tickets to see the homegrown band of global stardom sold out almost immediately.

The band’s been chalked into the lineup last-minute for a show Wednesday, celebrating the 40th anniversary of iconic venue Metro, 3730 N. Clark St.

Fall Out Boy will hit the stage after band Games We Play at 8:30 p.m.

Known for head-pounding rock hits and keeping skinny jeans cool, Fall Out Boy formed in the Chicago suburbs in 2001. Their first show was in the DePaul cafeteria. The band made the rounds in city’s punk scene before ascending to the top of charts in the mid 2000s.

Wednesday will be the first time Fall Out Boy has played the Metro in nearly a decade, according to WGN.

The tiny venue — long heralded as a rite-of-passage for Midwest musicians — is no stranger to blockbuster shows. Metallica played a secret show on a “need-to-know” basis at Metro in 2021.
