Thunder Couldn’t Stop the Explosive Show Fall Out Boy Had in Store for South Florida – Photos and Review of the Fall Out Boy & Bring Me the Horizon Concert at the iThink Amphitheater in West Palm Beach, FL

This Monday, I had the absolute pleasure of attending the highly anticipated Bring Me the Horizon and Fall Out Boy concert at the iThink Amphitheater in West Palm Beach. The event was electrifying from start to finish, with the opening acts Carr and Royal & the Serpents setting the stage for an unforgettable night of music and entertainment.

The evening kicked off with Carr, a rising indie singer-songwriter with a refreshing sound that perfectly warmed up the crowd. Their energetic and engaging performance instantly captivated the audience, winning over new fans with their catchy melodies and infectious enthusiasm. Carr proved to be an excellent choice for an opening act, setting the tone for the incredible night that awaited us.

Next up was Royal & the Serpents, and they brought a whole new dimension to the stage. The band’s unique blend of indie and pop-punk vibes created an atmosphere of raw emotion and intensity, drawing the crowd deeper into their mesmerizing performance. The lead vocalist’s powerful voice left an indelible impression on the audience, and their well-crafted songs showcased the band’s remarkable talent.

As the anticipation built for the main acts, the venue buzzed with excitement and energy which was, unfortunately, cut short by a Thunderstorm that forced a small delay while the weather cleared up. After getting the crowd back inside and re-situated in their seats, Bring Me the Horizon finally took the stage with a bang, launching into an explosive set that pushed the boundaries of a traditional rock show. With a perfect fusion of metalcore, alternative rock, and electronic elements, their performance was an audio-visual extravaganza. The band’s frontman Oli Sykes commanded the stage with an unrivaled presence, effortlessly connecting with the audience through every song.

From the thunderous anthems like “Teardrops” and “Drown” (during which Oli walked into the crowd) to the hauntingly beautiful “Can You Feel My Heart“, Bring Me the Horizon’s setlist was a carefully curated journey through their discography. The seamless transitions between heavy and melodic moments kept everyone on their toes, and the audience responded with boundless enthusiasm, moshing and singing along at the top of their lungs. Although the band had to cut a couple of songs from their set due to the rain delay, they finished up their time on stage with “Throne” as the crowd went bananas for the final time.

After the adrenaline-pumping performance by Bring Me the Horizon, it was Fall Out Boy’s turn to take the stage. As one of the defining bands of the emo pop-punk genre, Fall Out Boy did not disappoint their screaming fans when they took to the stage with an explosive version of “Love From the Other Side”, complete with enough fireworks and concussion blasts to make it smell like the Fourth of July all over again. The stage set-up was amazing, complete with pyrotechnics, fireworks, giant LED screens projecting doberman heads floating over the heads of the band, and enough strobes and lights to run a small airport.

The band’s charismatic presence and infectious energy got the crowd jumping and dancing during the entire two hour marathon set, and the band brought a perfect mix of their classics and newer hits, ensuring that both longtime fans and newcomers were thoroughly entertained. With hits like “Sugar, We’re Goin Down,” “Dance, Dance,” and “My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up),” the atmosphere reached a fever pitch, and the entire amphitheater turned into a massive sing-along party. Fall Out Boy’s dynamic stage presence and impeccable musicianship showcased why they have remained a beloved and relevant force in the music industry. Finishing up their time on stage with “Thnks fr th Mmrs“, “Centuries” and “Saturday“, the band left the stage to a fanatical crowd every hungry for more even after an insane 28 song set.

Overall, the Bring Me the Horizon and Fall Out Boy concert at iThink Amphitheater in West Palm Beach was an incredible experience that will undoubtedly be etched in the memories of every attendee. The show was a perfect blend of powerful performances, electrifying music, and a shared sense of camaraderie among the artists and the audience. If you ever get the chance to catch either of these bands live, do not hesitate to seize the opportunity – it’s a concert experience unlike any other!
