Fall Out Boy to tour with 50 Cent: Good idea or bad idea?

Falloutboy50cent_lHoly strange bedfellows! The rumors are true. Patrick Stump has confirmed to Billboard that 50 Cent will join Fall Out Boy on tour this month as the opening act for five shows beginning April 14 in Denver. Stump is already anticipating the fan backlash: "If you don’t like 50Cent, if you’re that stuck-up that you’re going to stand there andhate him actively, then go to the concession stand during (hisset)," he told Billboard. "Go get a T-shirt or go to the bathroom if that’s how youfeel."

After the initial "WTF" wears off, this pairing is not all that strange. Everyone knows the boys of FOB are wannabe rappers anyway (and, hello, Lil’ Wayne and Pharrell guest spots on Folie a Deux). And hip-hop and rock have a long collaborative history. The Hives, She Wants Revenge and, uh, Fall Out Boy worked with Timbaland on his Shock Value album. Eminem toured with Papa Roach and Limp Bizkit back in the day. And what would the world be like had Aerosmith and Run D.M.C. not made "Walk This Way"?

What do you think, Mixers? Is a Fall Out Boy/50 Cent pairing something that gets your blood pumping? And is anyone else curious about 50′s long-gestating Before I Self Destruct album, which is now penciled in for June?

    Will 50 be bringing a band or just rap’s normal backing tracks? It doesn’t matter, I do love fall out boy, but as long as 50 is just the opening act, then it’s cool. He is playing before cobra starship right? LOL
    Wasn’t there a time 50 was playing arenas? Now he can’t even get his album released and he is an opening act.

    What do 50 Cent and Fall Out Boy have in common? They’re both musical acts that no one with any discerning taste cares to see anymore.

    I’m taking tomorrow night in MD which is one of the 50cent(maybe 25cent by now) I like rap and rock its all a matter of taste, but have not been liking what he’s been bringing to the table lately understand getting the music to a new crowd, but why embarrass yourself as an opener. There are plenty of festivals all year, why not one of those. Hope he goes on b4 Cobra? More like everybody, even the DJ comes out and says “Good evening ladies and gentlemen…….
    All Time Low and Cobra are gonna bring the house down!
