my chemical romance: USA (Denver), April 9, 2011
The show was held at the Fillmore Auditorium in Denver, Colorado, USA on April 9th of 2011. Neon Trees was main support, so it was a pretty good package, although the $40 pricetag was slightly high.

Sound: My Chemical Romance's sound is awesome when it comes to their live shows because their three studio albums have been consistently good. Gerard Way was in top voice (it was also his birthday, which he mentioned several times) and he sounded no less awesome than he does in their studio albums. Ray Toro is always an underrated guitar player: his solos scream and he puts a lot of energy into their songs, and he put a really nice groove into "Teenagers" in particular. Their keyboard player was great too, looming in the background, providing a great basis for most of their songs. // 10

Perfomance: Although their sound is top-notch, their physical performance isn't really up to snuff. Most of the time, Gerard is tethered to his mic stand and Mikey Way is possibly the most boring bassist to watch ever. Providing no backing vocals, he mostly stands still or bobs the whole time, and is for some reason always almost in centerstage. Toro was the only one who really stood out, especially during his guitar solos. Their light show was serviceable, but the stage seemed slightly bare, especially after the theatricality of their Black Parade Tour. There were several high points of the night, too. The short keyboard solo that lead right into "Welcome To The Black Parade" caused the audience to go nuts. As well as Gerard Way's lead-in to "Teenagers": "One day, Denver, they're gonna try to clean you up! What are you gonna say about that, Denver? They're gonna clean up your looks with all the lies in the books..." // 7

Overall Impression: The show was held at the Fillmore Auditorium in Denver, Colorado, USA on April 9th of 2011. Neon Trees was main support, so it was a pretty good package, although the $40 pricetag was slightly high. The Fillmore is a consistently good venue, especially for theatrical bands like MCR. I'll be going back to their next show, but I'll be hoping it's a little cheaper and their performance is improved. // 8
