Many of the music lovers, sporting the beloved 'punk' dress of Converse-style runners, black and white clothing and shades, clutched CDs for signing as they hoped to meet the Grammy award winning punk rock band before they played the Olympia Theatre last night.

Their sports anthem song of 2013 'My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark' went double-platinum as a Top-10 hit.

Their fifth studio album, 'Save Rock and Roll', debuted at number one on Billboard's Top 200 and number one on iTunes in 27 countries when it was released last April.

Hailing from Chicago, Fall Out Boy features Patrick Stump as the frontman, Pete Wentz on bass, Joe Trohman on guitar and Andy Hurley on drums.

The band have featured on the cover of 'Rolling Stone' and performed on the high-rating 'Saturday Night Live' and 'Ellen DeGeneres Show' in the US.
