After scoring their third No. 1 album with American Beauty/American Psycho, Fall Out Boy spent some time giving back to some special fans on Friday, headlining the VH1 Super Bowl Blitz: A Concert for the Troops.
On a stage inside a hangar with a giant American flag draped across the back wall, Fall Out Boy kicked things off with a fan favorite in “Thnks fr th Mmrs (Thanks for the Memories)” from 2007’s Infinity on High, followed by the newly released dance cut “Uma Thurman” and the fist-pumping “My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light ‘Em Up).”
Hosted by Nick Lachey at Luke Air Force Base in Glendale, Ariz., the televised concert also included a quick opening set by Charli XCX, and appearances by Broadway star Idina Menzel, who sang the National Anthem at Super Bowl XLIX, and American Idol winner and Arizona native Jordin Sparks.
Of course, no Super Bowl event would be complete without a few NFL stars, which came in the way of Raiders running back Maurice Jones-Drew, Chicago Bears cornerback Charles Tillman and Bengals running back Jeremy Hill.
To bring the special concert to an end, Fall Out Boy closed with anthemic hit “Centuries,” which has quickly become a staple at sports venues. It certainly resonated with the Luke Air Force Base audience as well, as the sacrifices these men and women make to serve their country will be remembered in history.
Watch “Centuries” below.

With a new album called American Beauty/American Psycho coming out this week, Fall Out Boy have been rocking the promotional cycle.
Last week, that tour ran through the BBC Radio 1 studios, where the band talked with host Fearne Cotton and performed a few songs.
One of those tracks was quite a surprise, as Fall Out Boy tackled “Uptown Funk,” the hit single from Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars.
Watch below as Fall Out Boy brings out their inner Stevie Wonder for “Uptown Funk.”

Premier Guitar recently caught up with the guys in Fall Out Boy during a tour stop just outside of Nashville, and frontman Patrick Stump walked them through all his gear, including his signature Stump-O-Matic guitar.
“When I had this designed, I really was going for something that was a Swiss Army knife,” Stump said. ”I wanted something that could accomplish everything. I have a big collection of vintage guitars, and it’s really fun to play around with them, but on stage, on a tour, I want something that is consistent and easy.”

Since February 2013, Fall Out Boy has been releasing one music video at a time in support of Save Rock and Roll as part of an ongoing series titled The Young Blood Chronicles.
The Chronicles, which featured appearances from album collaborators Courtney Love, Big Sean and Foxes, as well as cameos from 2 Chainz and Tommy Lee, tell the story of a famous band that goes to Hell and back, wrestling with fame, fortune, drugs and zombie strippers along the way.
The band unveiled the final two chapters of their epic music video series Wednesday night with vignettes for “Miss Missing You” and “Save Rock and Roll,” the latter of which stars Elton John.
Watch the videos below, which feature singer Patrick Stump on his signature Gretsch Stump-O-Matic and guitarist Joe Trohman rocking a Gretsch White Falcon.
