MySpace Music is excited to announce an upcoming Secret Show featuring Fall Out Boy presented by TurboTax Federal Free Edition (http://www.myspace.com/falloutboy). As Florida gears up for the Super Bowl, they have another reason to celebrate with a free, intimate concert by the band on Wednesday, January 28 at State Theater in St. Petersburg. The Secret Show performance will be held exclusively for MySpace users, who were notified today via MySpace.
As an added bonus, MySpace users who friend TurboTax’s Freeloader Nation (http://www.myspace.com/turbotax), and make TurboTax one of their top friends, have a chance to be one of 15 people to receive free VIp tickets and be among the first to enter the show. They must print out a copy of their profile and bring it to the event to be eligible for this extra perk
Recently Fall Out Boy premiered their latest album, Folie à Deux, exclusively to their MySpace Music fans days before their album hit stores. “America’s Suitehearts” the current single from the new album has already made an impression. After premiering on The N and Yahoo Music on Jan 1, the video has now been added to all MTV platforms and Fuse. Also, it is currently airing in over 5,000 national movie theaters.
The multi-platinum band Fall Out Boy has built up a loyal following through relentless touring; they have performed over 1200 shows since their inception in 2000. The band’s 2007 release “Infinity On High” debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart and followed-up “From Under The Cork Tree,” their Island debut of May 2005, which spent 72 weeks on the Billboard 200 albums chart. They have won three MTV Video Music Awards and have received a Grammy nomination as well.
