As far as concert-wear goes a Tesco hat is probably not at the top of the list for a lot of rock stars.

But, Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz, wore one on stage Wednesday night at the Cardiff leg of their uk tour.

He had expressed a desire for one of the supermarket’s beanies in a previous promo-trip to the united KINGDOM and one of its fans was determined to get there.

“I have one, careful what you wish for,” Pete told Newsbeat.

The 38-year-old emo musician explained that the supermarket and its uniform is a cultural reference that not many Americans know it.

“If you said something about Tesco to an American there is like” I don’t really know what it is ” unless you are in a group,” he said.

It turns out that many artists on the road, first learn to know the brand because of their tour-bus use the supermarket car parks.

“The bands used to park in the Tesco’s [sic], because the bus parking was there. So, I got a Tesco hat, I guess,” Pete went on.

Fall Out Boy are currently promoting their album of the MANIA and the very dedicated fan wanted to do to Pete dreams.

He threw his hat on stage with custom name badges for the other members of the band.

Pete wore the hat during the performance of a few songs, and gave the fan a crew t-shirt in return.

He told Newsbeat he enjoyed wearing the hat, but in terms of making Tesco happen in America: “I don’t know, I’m not the man I think not.”
