Fall Out Boy posted a message at its website on Tuesday night (April 16th), saying that all proceeds from the band's Boston-area show this fall would go to victims of the Boston Marathon bombing that occurred Monday (April 15th). The band wrote, "Normally this would be a day of celebration with the release of our new album. In light of the events in Boston yesterday we'd like to send our thoughts and prayers to the victims and everyone affected. We'll be donating the proceeds from our upcoming Boston show from the fall tour at Tsongas Arena to the victims. Hopefully these songs will make some people feel better today. We are Americans, this affects us all."
Fall Out Boy's show at the Tsongas Arena in Lowell, Massachusetts, is scheduled for September 6th.
The date is the second gig on the trek, which begins on September 5th in Uncasville, Connecticut.
Fall Out Boy's fifth album, Save Rock And Roll, was released on Tuesday and is its first since 2008'sFolie A Deux. It follows a four-year hiatus and features guest appearances from Courtney Love, Elton John and others.
Meanwhile, British trio Muse dedicated their Monday night concert at New York City's Madison Square Garden to the victims of the attack. Frontman Matt Bellamy told the crowd, "This is for Boston," as the band played an instrumental version of "The Star-Spangled Banner," to which the audience sang along. Muse later dedicated the song "Starlight" during their encore to the New England city.
Muse is touring behind its 2012 album, The 2nd Law, and next plays in East Rutherford, New Jersey on Friday (April 19th).
