On September 1, I went to Hershey to see a fabulous concert. I saw Fall Out Boy, and it was probably the best night of my life. Needless to say, it was amazing. The two opening acts were a band called “Against the Current” and a rapper named “Machine Gun Kelly.” After hours of anticipation, the stadium went black, and I knew very well what was about to happen. On stage, there was a screen and it was now showing the purple MANIA wave. The members: Patrick Stump, Pete Wentz, Joe Trohman, and Andy Hurley all came on stage and opened with “Disloyal Order of Water Buffaloes.” I cried through the entire song.

They continued the night with “The Phoenix,” “Irresistible,” “Sugar, We’re Going Down,” “American Beauty/American Psycho,” “Immortals,” “Stay Frosty Royal Milk Tea,” “Uma Thurman,” “Save Rock and Roll,” “The Last of the Real Ones,” and “Young and a Menace.” All the songs were wonderfully performed, and Patrick’s voice during “Young and a Menace” was hauntingly beautiful. Patrick Stump and Pete Wentz were driven in a small cart to a tiny stage in the middle of the stadium, while the drummer, Andy Hurley, stole the show with an impeccable drum solo.

After that, they performed “Dance Dance,” “Wilson,” and my personal favorite, “Thanks fr the Mmrs.” Once again, they were expertly performed. Once everyone returned to the main stage, they played a classic named “I Don’t Care.” Next, they played, “This Ain’t a Scene, It’s an Arms Race,” where Pete Wentz and Patrick Stump were lifted by risers. They finished the night with “Centuries,” “Champion,” and “Grand Theft Autumn.” I was sad for the ending of the show, but the lights were still out, which only meant one thing: an encore.

We were welcomed by a grinning Pete Wentz who said, “Pennsylvania is the best place ever. It’s the only place in the world where I can go into a sporting goods store and buy a jersey with my last name on it.” He said this as he pulled off a jean jacket to reveal a Carson Wentz jersey. They ended the night officially with “My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark” and “Saturday.” September 1, 2018, was a night filled with music, fireworks, fire, surprises, fun, and happiness. It didn’t feel real… maybe it was just a dream.
