"A" list? no even close. about 1% of the country could even recognize him on the street.

yeah selling out arenas on a headling tour is a little different than opening for other bands at shack places like the congress theatre in chicago which probably holds about 1500 people.

Hooray for a mediocre band making millions of dollars off of mediocre music because the people who decided old boy bands aren't cool anymore ate it up? That's America for ya. I don't care how "hard" they've worked (and over what? one or two shitty albums? big fucking deal.) or how "nice" they are. There is a mile long list of bands who are harder working, nicer and have much more interesting and intelligent subject matter who deserve it more, even though they don't try way too hard to get it. The only reason this band got big is because people are stupid and will buy into anything that doesn't require thought. No one will care about them in a few years and I won't be surprised. I don't read these threads enough to see all the retaliation I'm sure I'll receive for seeing through the bullshit. But then again, it's almost even more cool to ignore disagreeing opinions, so who knows? Who cares? Most of you people are so far up FOB's ass to see daylight anyway, so there really is no reason for me to say anything in the first place. I need to stop reading this crap. I'm going out. Have fun.

I don't agree with his arguement either, but I feel like you just helped confirm it a little bit

In regards to St. Louis, the pageant holds about 2200 people or so, so it isn't too small but compared to the family arena (which is where they played last) its a drop in the pond. Fallout boy played Pop's in Sauget with Midtown 3 months before the release of FUCT (before sugar, we're going down even hit air) and sold it out. They've progressively made steps up. They played the old Creepy Crawl at least 2 times I can think of before before the LTJ show and it held less than 300 people at max capacity along with playing Mississippi Nights once. St. Louis was a major staple of tours for them seeing as how Chicago is only 5 hours away during support for take this to the grave. While everything may have looked like they were an overnight success it was more like a 3 year progression and it spread faster than an std
