Fall Out Boy's Trippy 'Mania Experience' Pop-Up: See the Pics
If you didn't get a chance to drop by Fall Out Boy's Mania Experience pop-up in Chicago over the weekend, the band has posted a few pics that will give you serious FOMO. The series of snaps include a light-up coffin, a giant ball pit stuffed with purple pills and a giant "confess my love" signature wall for fans to leave messages to the band.
In celebration for their just-released Lake Effect Kid EP, FOB opened the experience and pop-up shop before their hometown show at Chicago's Wrigley Field on Sept. 8. "We teamed up with so many incredible artists to help bring the album to life in a completely different lens, so get your cameras ready," they explained beforehand of the 12 different spaces for fans to walk through, including a giant purple wave, a room full of music boxes with unreleased remixes, covers, photo ops with M A N I A mascots Frosty and Royal Tea, and much, much more.
Check out images from FOB and their fans below.

Went to Chicago this past weekend for @falloutboy 's hometown show, and they had created an art installation called #themaniaexperience so of course I brought my camera. The Heaven's Gate room was definitely one of my favorites. More visual shots and model shots will be coming soon! #falloutboy #chicago #nikonphotography #photography
I think I looked forward to this one time only experience more so than the concert itself! VIP got us early entry which, if you know me, meant I didn’t have to stand around for an hour to try and get pictures without photo bombers. Even though it went by quickly, I had a great time. The only (and most) disappointing thing is that all the exclusive merchandise sold out on day one!!! We thought that getting in before the doors officially opened on day 2 that we’d be able to buy something.. but nope!!! All the merch left over was also available at the show. -- #falloutboy #fob #maniatour #themaniaexperience #chicago #exclusive #oneweekendonly #popupmuseum #mania #donottaponglass #upsidedownroom #pillpit
