More Info

Fall Out Boy: One of the most influential American pop punk bands of the new millennium is Fall Out Boy. The group achieved mainstream success with their 2005 album, From Under the Cork Tree, which was followed by some of the most popular tour dates in recentyears. Fall Out Boy continued their rise to fame with singles like "This Ain't a Scene, It's an Arms Race," "Dance, Dance," and "Thnks fr th Mmrs." There are no tour dates in 2011 for Fall Out Boy, ever since the band went on hiatus in 2009; but fans are anxiously awaiting the announcement of a reunion in the near future.

The secret origins of Fall Out Boy began at New Trier High School in Winnetka, Illinois, where Pete Wentz and Joe Trohman went to school. Trohman met drummer Patrick Stump at a Borders Books after Stump heard him talking about the band Neurosis, and Stump was invited to join as the lead singer. T. J. Kunasch was hired to play rhythm guitar and Mike Pareskuwicz was brought on to play drums, thus completing the band's initial lineup. Utilizing their collective punk influences, the band began playing concert dates around Chicago. Fall Out Boy released a demo and quickly followed it up with a split EP with Project Rocket in 2002. Fall Out Boy also released a short debut LP, Fall Out Boy's Evening Out with Your Girlfriend, in 2003.

After the debut album's release, Kunasch and Pareskuwicz left the band; Stump took on the guitar in addition to vocal duties and Project Rocket drummer Andy Hurley joined the group. Fall Out Boy also signed to Fueled by Ramen, which released Take This To Your Grave two months after their previous album and sent the new line-up on many a tour date. The record was the first to gain Fall Out Boy commercial and critical success, with most of the reviews being very positive. Any success Fall Out Boy had achieved prior to 2005 would increase exponentially after the release of From Under the Cork Tree, which has gone platinum twice since its release. The album was supported by a number of hugely popular singles, including "Sugar, We're Goin Down" and "Dance, Dance," as well as headlining tour dates around the world. The group followed up their successful album with Infinity on High in 2007. The album showcased an evolution from pop punk to an edgier rock style and debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200.

Fall Out Boy's latest studio release is the 2008 album Folie à Deux. The album was well received by critics and featured a number of special guest vocalists, including Debbie Harry, Elvis Costello, and Brendon Urie. Despite even more musical experimentation and the favoring of an alt-rock sound, the album went gold in just over a month and the single "I Don't Care" received heavy airplay. In late 2009, the members of Fall Out Boy announced that they needed some time off and were going on an indefinite hiatus. While comments from the band's members have left the band's future vague, fans can expect no new albums or tour dates in 2011.

Charlie Puth: A Berklee College of Music Alum, Charlie Puth originally performed as a duo with Emily Luther. Puth gained worldwide notice after the release of his single "Marvin Gaye" featuring Meghan Trainor, as well as for his performance on the Wiz Khalifa single "See You Again."

Niall Horan: Horan came into the public at the age of 16, after appearing on the hit show The X Factor. The young singer struggled in the competition until he was paired with four other lads to form the group One Direction.

Horan has cited a wide range of influences, although he is predominantly inspired by Canadian singer Michael Bublé. He's also stated that he's a fan of classic swing crooners like Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin, whose influences can be heard in Horan's solo work.

Following One Direction's hiatus that began in late 2015, Horan has explored various solo avenues, eventually signing with Capitol Records in 2016. The singer's debut solo single, "This Town", was released a few months later, and quickly broke into the Billboard Top 100.

Kesha: The electro-pop phenomenon known as Kesha burst onto radio with one of 2009's biggest singles, "Tik Tok", and has become one of the industry's top digital sellers, releasing club banger after club banger. She is audacious, slightly scandalous, but she knows how to ride a hot track. Use Eventful as your source for Kesha tour dates and concert schedule information.

The bold singer got her start after being discovered by Dr. Luke and Max Martin who noticed her talent for songwriting and her production ear. She was first featured on Flo Rida's #1 single, "Right Round", singing the hook before "Tik Tok", became the world's best selling single of 2010 with nearly thirteen million copies sold. Kesha released her debut album, Animal, in January, 2010 where it debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200. The hits kept on coming with "Blah Blah Blah", "Your Love Is My Drug", and "Take It Off" all becoming top ten singles. Kesha tour dates were scheduled on the opening stage for Rihanna's Last Girl on Earth Tour, and she became a worldwide phenomenon.

Kesha returned in November, 2010 with the EP, Cannibal, which featured the #1 single "We R Who We R". By the end of 2010, Kesha won the MTV Europe Music Awards for Best New Act and sold over 30 million digital downloads. Kesha has already dominated 2011 with her single "Blow" and she wrote Britney Spears hit "Til' The World Ends" and appeared on the remix of the track. Kesha is on the verge of a pop revolution and dominated the airwaves for two years.
