Fall Out Boy & The Fuel Girls
Sooooo…. the last few weeks we had to keep a little secret!
The Fuel Girls where asked to put together a set of full-scale fire, pyro and aerial performances for US band Fall Out Boy, to take on tour to Leeds Festival, Glasgow Summer Sessions and to end at Reading Festival – huge audiences and an awesome band!
We worked hard to pull together all of our skills and with Naomi at the choreography helm, we worked firstly in London, then moved up to the incredibly large ‘Fly by Night’ studios in Redditch http://www.fbnstudios.co.uk where we started to put the pieces together to create an epic show!
We knew the Fuel Girls where a match to Fall Out Boy from the first day. The beats, lyrics and energy of their songs suited our shows like a glove – from the stomping beats of ‘My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark’ to the high energy, punchy drama of Pheonix, the songs lent themselves perfectly to our choreographic moments!
We travelled between shows on a double decker sleeper bus and arrived at each show fresh and ready for action! This meant marking the stage, dealing with stage managers, riggers, crew and the long task of prepping our gear as we just had so much fire in the show! Each show just seemed to build and build, as we got used to the space on stage, the crowds (immense!) and the choreography – by the final song we did not want it to end!
A week to remember!
The members of Fall Out Boy could not have been more gracious and we have made friends for life. We have a feeling it’s not the last time we will be sharing a stage with these boys!
