Our car could have been fueled completely by excitement and anxiousness as my little sister and I arrived at Blossom Music Center. We had been anticipating this concert for only four shorts days after having found at that we had won the tickets, but the wait seemed to have lasted more than a lifetime.

We soon discovered that we were not alone in this feeling; ecstatic concert-goers began to pour in through the gates, shouting, skipping, dancing, and all but mowing over each other in order to be within view of the stage a few precious seconds sooner. I skulked about the entrance gate in order to meet fellow Killyjoys and and take their photos. A few people even recognized me from Buzznet! The concert son began, and it was all everybody could do to stay in his or her seat.

The lights were killed, and the notorious female representative of Better Living Industries appeared on a large screen. It was impossible to hear what she had to say over the screaming of excited fans (not to mention that she spoke in Japanese)!

The band opened with--you guessed it--NaNaNa. Gerard would not stay in one place for more than a second, and Frank seemed more than pleased to climb off of the stage and onto an amp as he stared out into the audience. Mikey and Ray stood faithfully in their spots as Frank hurried back to his microphone to provide backup vocals along with Ray.

There are few times in my life that I have been to a concert. I can count on 2 hands the number of live musical acts I have bought tickets to see. Five of those fingers would be My Chemical Romance shows. From the first riff of “I’m Not Okay” to the last note of “Vampire Money” and all the discoveries of other songs in between, absolutely no music or lyrics have ever reached me, such as theirs. It has been said time and time again, but it is as if the lyrics of each song reached right into my soul and exposed my insides. Whether it’s the emotion poured into every guitar strum, bass pluck or word sang… this band has a hold on people that just won’t let go.

Some fans from back in the day say it’s the antics on stage, but how can that be? When My Chemical Romance took the stage, as Freddie Mercury once said in a song, “It’s a kind of magic." And that was nothing further from the truth tonight. An army of fans they have created. Regardless the waiting time, regardless the weather, the fans are always there…dressed in the colors that represent their undying devotion to a band whose music means so much to them.

As I walked down the line of fans that waited to get in, there was a buzz in the air. They were moments away from experiencing the time of their lives. For one girl it was the first time she had gotten to ever see MCR live and the anticipation was overwhelming for her! The smiles on faces after waiting for hours were still there. No one could dampen the spirits of these Killjoys.

September 4, 2011 was the best day of the year for all the Killjoys that were in Colorado at the time. We all gathered together under the sun, along with all the Rancid and Blink 182 fans. Butterflies fluttered around in my stomach and I could see the excitement dripping off of everyone's faces. I could tell it was going to be a good show.

I got my tickets and stood in line with my little sister, who I decided to bring with me, and waited to be let in. As the line finally began to move, I stuck my photo pass to my shirt, knowing I would need it later. We got to our seats without much trouble and I decided that they weren't too bad. I noticed that most of the My Chemical Romance fans were in the back and wished they could join me. Anticipation was written on every single person's face.

I remember my first My Chemical Romance concert. It wasn't too long ago actually, just last April (so technically it would be pretty hard to forget). I was stuck at the back of the crowd. But despite being so far away from the stage I thought I was right up next to it since they perform with so much energy and connect with every single member of the audience.

The guys of My Chemical Romance have such an amazing stage presence that can fill small clubs -like where I saw them last- and huge amphitheatres like Usana, where they performed this Saturday.

It was intresting to see the diffrence between the audiences that Blink-182, Rancid, and My Chemical Romance brought in. Rancid seemed to have an older punk fans, while MCR's audience consisted of mostly teenagers and young adults, and Blink fans fell somewhere in the middle.

Rancid was an excellent opening for Blink and MCR. They had everyone in the audience tapping their feet and bobbing their heads. After Rancid it was MCR's turn to take the stage. The set-up didn't take too long and the stage was ready in about 10 minutes.Suddenly, film reel began to show on the giant screen above the stage, and the crowd went wild, and when the band took the stage, the crowd screamed even louder.

The band opened with "Na Na Na" which they played with tons of energy and vigor, and they kept up the energy throughout the entire night. Ray and Frank ripped though solo after solo. Mikey was confident and steady on the bass, and Gerard powered through every song with nearly flawless vocals.
