It wasn't much of a hiatus, just three years full of solo albums and side projects. But Fall Out Boy has reformed and by all accounts, they're also reenergized. The concerts on their current "comeback" tour have been selling out, and crowds and critics have been almost universally enthusiastic.

They'll be coming to the Sun Dome on the University of South Florida campus in Tampa on Sunday so you can see for yourself.

Well, actually, you might not be able to see for yourself unless you already have tickets. The show's already sold out.

The Illinois quartet had an indie album called "Take This to Your Grave" in 2003, but came into the national spotlight a couple of years later with their major-label debut, "From Under the Cork Tree." Their songs, highlighted by Patrick Stump's pop-tinged melodies and Pete Wentz's smart and playful lyrics, have been a hit with audiences ever since.

The band announced an "indefinite" break in late 2009, but by early 2012 Stump and Wentz were writing new Fall Out Boy songs. Their newest album, "Save Rock and Roll," came out earlier this year.

Joining them on the tour are Panic! at the Disco, an arty band most widely known for the huge 2005 hit "I Write Sins Not Tragedies" and Twenty One Pilots, an Ohio duo that made two self-released albums before its recent album came out on a small label this year.

Details: 7 p.m. Sept. 29, Sun Dome, 4202 E. Fowler Ave., Tampa. Tickets: Sold out. Information: www.sundomearena.com.
