My Chemical Romance began their tour in Arizona on Friday. According to reviews, one being in http://www.azcentral.com/ with a few Gee Pix free of makeup, the reviewer was as impressed with their set as he was in a "secret" 200 patron gig he was at in England.
Found a link to a video somehow on the 23 of March that appeared on a blog I THINK is called
Don't worry you're still a victim in this game on a Windows Live site. If I can sort out the actual link, I'll post it to give credit to the video I hope will make it's appearance below:
Think I'll leave it at that.
The remainder of the tour still have venues which haven't sold out yet.
I've listed them as they appear on My Chemical Romance's website.
Which, btw, annoys the hell out of me as it seems to exist solely to sell Merch.
Their My Space isn't much better.
A petition for better Mods are in order, here...IMHO...

Now, I might gripe and bitch about the "commercialism" that now hovers over MCR, but did that deter me from getting tickets in Philly for the 7th of May, AND MSG on the 9th of May?
Ohhhh. Noooooo...especially MSG. Thanks to a You Tube Video with MCR being interviewed on Australia Day, in answer to quite an entertaining interviewer's question regarding Liza Minelli, Gerard Way commented that "If they ever played 'The Garden', since Liza is based in NYC, she might join them on stage. I wouldn't miss this for a lifetime of Starbuck's Sulawesi Beans.
Oh, just a comment about the S//K icon I used in the last post. It is a trademark of sorts for MCR's rhythm guitarist, Frank Iero's company, Skeleten Crew. Sorry I didn't make that clear.
If you live near one of the venues that, as of this typing, still have tix to offer, go for it.
And Have Fun!
