This Ain't an Arms Race, It's a Concert Giveaway

2007_03_fob_bear.jpgWe've already shared our thoughts with you about Fall Out Boy's new album. And, wise, prescient sages we are, we were correct in predicting the group's latest effort would be a monster sales-wise. So it's no surprise that the group has had to upgrade to a larger venue when they visit Chicago on June 10 and 11 at the Charter One Pavilion for The Honda Civic Tour.

Since they're hometown boys (OK, OK, suburban-based sort-of Chicago hometown boys) they've teamed up with Chicagoist to offer up a few tickets to some of our readers for both shows. Nice, huh?

To sweeten the pot, the tour is sort of a who's who of the mall-emo scene at the moment, and we noticed that Fall Out Boy is also bringing along local pals The Academy Is ... to open. (Also on the bill is Cobra Starship, so expect to hear "Snakes On A Plane" ... for the jillionth time.)

Don't forget to troll all the late-night hot spots when the band hits town since Pete Wentz might pop up and commandeer a DJ booth to spin a few tracks while sipping some bubbly with Kanye.

Enter for tickets after the jump.
