Fall Out Boy were forced to perform without their instruments last night after failing to acquire the necessary paperwork.

The rockers had planned to stage an impromptu gig at New York's Washington Park, but a blunder with administration meant they did not have the appropriate permit.

The New York Police Department told the band that they would face a night in jail if they went ahead and played their instuments, according to MTV.

However, the group decided to continue with their performance in support of new album Folie a Deux, substituting air guitars for the real deal and leading the crowd in a sing-a-long.

"I'm kind of bummed by all that, to be honest," said singer Patrick Stump. "That was going to be awesome.

"Those cops back there - and I have no problem with the cops, trust me - but those cops were like the Grinch. They just took all the presents."
