My Chemical Romance played tonight night with Linkin Park’s Project Revolution tour. We had gotten there a little late and only caught the last two songs of Drive By. I had listened to their songs online before coming to the show and really liked what I heard. Unfortunately, we didn’t get to hear too much of the band.and Drive By at . Having gotten the tickets to this show back in March, I was very excited to see them play live after last summer when they were part of
Next came Taking Back Sunday, which is one of my favorite bands. I was really psyched to see them again. They played songs from the new album Louder Now all the old favorites like “Cute Without the E,” They also played a brand new song “That is Quite Enough” which I really liked a lot. The new song was similar to TBS’s usual style.
By the time MCR came out, I was really excited. They played songs from both albums and some old school songs for their hardcore fans. The show was really awesome and it marked a great pinnacle in MCR’s career. It was the last show after the two-year touring stint for their The Black Parade album.
There was a posting on MCR’s website in which the bassist, Mikey Way had said MSG holds a special play in their hearts. In 1997 Gerard and Mikey went to see The Smashing Pumpkins at that very venue. Mikey turned to his brother and said “this is what I want to be…this is what we have to do…one day we are going to be on that stage.” At the concert, they said that they are now going start recording a new record.
The overall experience of seeing these bands live was really incredible. I remember the last time when I saw them last summer at PNC on Linkin Park’s Projekt Revolution tour, but this time it was very even more moving. As MCR played some of their songs I had goosebumps. At one point in the show, Gerard Way had the entire stadium do the wave. He commanded the crowd and sat down exactly when he said. I always think that it’s amazing that when the band at a concert will tell the crowd to do something and they always follow. It must be such a trip to have thousands of people hanging on your every word.
