WWOne Blasts In Summer With Two Specials

Fall Out Boy
Westwood One kicks off the summer season with two exclusive Memorial Day Weekend music specials hosted by GRAMMY-winner Ed Sheeran and AMA/MTV Award-winner Pete Wentz of the critically-acclaimed rock band Fall Out Boy.
  •  Get Out and Play, hosted by pop star Ed Sheeran, celebrates the beginning of summer with four hours of great music, information on this summer’s hottest tours, plus talk about the beach, summer vacation spots and new box office releases. 
  •  Memorial Day Mania, hosted by Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy, ignites the summer season with tour and summer music festival talk, new music coming out this summer, road trips, and more.
Ed Sheeran
Multi-platinum, multiple GRAMMY Award winning singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran has quickly established himself as one of the world’s biggest musical artists with over 26 million albums sold and 5 billion Spotify streams.  His just released, third studio album “÷”  (pronounced divide) has proven to be a global phenomenon of its own, selling over 4 million units worldwide in its first week.  In the U.S., “÷” entered the Billboard 200 at #1, scoring the biggest debut of the year with first week sales equivalents exceeding 451,000 units and has already been certified Gold, while in Sheeran’s native U.K.,  the album sold a staggering 672,000 units, topping the Official Albums Chart with the third highest week one sales of any album in the chart’s history, and has been certified 2x-Platinum.

Pete Wentz is the bassist for Fall Out Boy, the GRAMMY-nominated Chicago rock band comprised of members Pete, Patrick Stump, Joseph Trohman, and Andrew Hurley. The band's 2005 sophomore album, From Under the Cork Tree, was certified double platinum and featured the Top 10 hits "Sugar, We're Goin Down" and "Dance, Dance." 2007's Infinity on High topped the Billboard 200 albums chart, as did 2013's Save Rock and Roll and 2015's American Beauty/American Psycho. Fall Out Boy's latest album, M A N I A, will be released on September 15 and features the song "Young and Menace."
