The trek was to begin April 18 in Charlotte, N.C., but has now been pushed back to May 11 in Denver. The lone date that has been canceled is May 1 in Sacramento, Calif.; refunds are available at points of purchase.
"Unfortunately, because of some personal issues we had to delay the tour a few weeks," Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz says in a statement. "We want to put on the best possible show we can and know that this extra couple of weeks will give us the time to put ourselves in the right place to put on the best show we can."
The tour, which will also feature rapper Paul Wall and rock outfits Cobra Starship, +44 and The Academy Is..., will now conclude July 2 in Anaheim, Calif.
Wentz told Billboard.com in an earlier interview that in addition to playing the hits and pumping its latest Island album, "Infinity on High," the quartet plans to play songs from its catalog that have never been performed live, as well as re-arranged versions of other tracks and covers. "It'll be right back to Michael Jackson, probably," he said of the latter. "I'd say expect Jackson 5 or 'Beat It' or something like that."
"Infinity on High" is the No. 4 top-selling release of the year so far, according to Nielsen SoundScan, having shifted 695,000 units.
