Cool tech. Hot band.
Fall Out Boy live at Citrix Synergy 2016
Synergy wrapped up several days of digital business transformation with a transformation of a different kind as downtown Las Vegas became an exclusive food and music festival just for Synergy attendees, who had a chance to see Fremont Street like never before: the classic neon face of Las Vegas offered a taste of the cooler, edgier side of the city that most conference attendees never experience.
Headlining this unforgettable block party under the desert stars were multiaward–winning alternative band Fall Out Boy! Hailing from Chicago, Fall Out Boy—who won Best Alternative Band at the 2014 People’s Choice Awards and was nominated for Top Rock Artist and Top Rock Song (“Centuries”) at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards—have cemented their position as one of rock music’s biggest-selling bands. Their sixth studio album, American Beauty/American Psycho, debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and peaked at #1 on iTunes in more than 22 countries upon its January 20, 2015 release. The album’s first single “Centuries” has been certified platinum and has more than 80 million streams between YouTube and Spotify alone. The band is currently on a global tour in support of the record.
American Beauty/American Psycho is the follow-up album to the gold-certified album Save Rock And Roll, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and #1 on iTunes in 27 countries upon its April 2012 release and features the multiplatinum hit “My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light Em Up)” and hit “Alone Together.” Fall Out Boy has also written the song “Immortals,” featured in the Oscar-nominated Disney hit movie Big Hero 6, which topped the box office upon its November 7 release and has already surpassed $120 million at the domestic U.S. box office and topped $4 billion globally.
It was an extraordinary ending to a week packed with incredible technology, intensive training and networking.
