Tour Blogger: Honda Civic Tour Vancouver

By. Arabella
As soon as I arrived at the arena in Vancouver, there were tons of My Chemical Romance fans all around. There were fans all over the street, getting off the near-by train station, everywhere. Though there was still an hour and a half to go before the show even started, fans were lining up and getting pumped to see the performance. I’ve never seen so many people in MCR shirts in my entire life. So many, that the number of My Chemical Romance fans seemed to almost be equal to the number of Blink182 fans. Standing in line myself waiting to get my tickets I overheard a number of people say they came from the US and had to travel quite a distance to get there. Others also said they came from other parts of Canada. My Chemical Romance fans always manage to surprise me at just how far they’ll go for the band and how dedicated they are.

Alrighty. Where do I begin? So much has happened in the last day. My voice is gone, my arms and legs are sore, and I have a brand new camera with 350 pictures of the best night of my life on it.
We got there pretty early, around 5. There was a moderately long line of cars waiting for the parking gates to open when we arrived. I sat on top of my car for a few minutes before the line slowly started moving forward and we pulled into the gates. By that point the adventure had begun, and I was super excited. We got in and there was a bit of trouble trying to get in. We were confused about how the photo pass worked, and nobody else really got it either. But eventually we got in and everything was good.
Manchester Orchestra was the first to perform. I couldn't hear they're songs that good cause I was standing next to an amp that was as tall as I was and my eardrums were being pounded on. After they finished playing, it was a 15 minute break to switch around the drums and bring out the fancy MCR amps and Mikey's helmet and all that jazz. When My Chem came out, I was screaming my head off

Tour Blogger: Milwaukee

By. Chris R.

2:55 AM. No better time to sit down and empty some thoughts onto a piece of paper.

When I woke up on the morning of August 23rd, 2011, I had no idea of what my evening would be like. I knew that I had won 2 tickets and a photo pass for my friend Liz and I to see My Chemical Romance at the Marcus Ampitheater in Milwaukee, but as excited as I was for this event, I still had some nervous thoughts looming in my mind: "Will I find my tickets and my seats alright?" "Will her and I get separated?" "Will the photo pass work and flow smoothly?" Well, what unfolded was a memorable night filled with many good times and irreplicaple moments.

We got to the box office an hour before the doors opened and we got our tickets, no problem. There were tons of Blink 182 fans gathered near the doors. But for what the MCR fans lacked in numbers, they made up for in spirit. Killjoys gathered around slowly but surely, standing out with many original and colorful outfits. Before we knew it, we were in - and ready to rock.

Now here's where things got really interesting: Manchester Orchestra had just finished their set, and I was very excited to take my place up by the photo pit to digitally capture my four heroes. But venue security would not buy my fully certified authorization to the pit and were dead set on keeping me out of it. I made a few phone calls, dropped a few names - but they wouldnt budge. I made my way back to my seats, bummed that this opportunity was being taken from me. But nonetheless, I was fortunate to be here and eagerly awaited MCR's set.

After a BL/ind spokespeson gave the countdown, MCR rip, roared and rolled through "Na Na Na" and then went right to "Vampire Money". All of a sudden, one of MCR's tour managers motioned for me to come to the security gates. I was finally going to get my chance at this once in a lifetime opportunity! ...but there was one stipulation: I could only take pictures for the rest of the song, and it was already a minute in. I had to work fast. I hurried to the front and started snapping away at the boys. Their high energy flailing around combined with my excitement did not make capturing photos of them easy, but I think I did a good job. Three times in the 2 minutes I was up there, security guards tugged at me, pulled me away, and tried to bust me - thinking I jumped the rail or something. But the sticker on my chest and the onlooking manager gave them their answer: This was my moment. This was my time. And I can honestly say that when it was just me and the band for that minute and a half/two minutes, my favorite MCR song blasting in my face without any interruptions - that was THE best moment of my life. Not everyone can say that they get to stand within 3 feet of their heroes. And if it meant me having to deal with some turbulence to get to that place, it was a miniscule price to pay compared to the photos I received in return.

I arrived at the venue at about five 'o clock and walked to the box office and checked to see if my tickets had arrived, they had not, so I looked around a little bit. The number of blink-182 fans was about equal to the number of My Chemical Romance fans, and they all visited in harmony as they waited for the gates to open. The gates finally opened at about six-thirty, and the tickets arrived around the same time. I got my tickets, and was told to go to the V.I.P entry to get my photo pass. I was taken into the box office and recieved my tickets and photo pass, now I was ready to go in. I gave my free tickets to my aunt and uncle and bought a pit ticket so I could be closer to my favorite band, the tickets I recieved were great but I wanted to be in the pit, and my aunt and uncle needed tickets, we walked in, and checked out all the awesome tents, and then walked down to our seats.

Tour Blogger: Honda Civic Tour Hartford, CT

It was a rainy day when killjoys from all around the country gathered at the Comcast Theater in Hartford, CT for one reason: to watch their favorite band My Chemical Romance put on a great show. Killjoys are very dedicated fans; some had been camping out since Friday for this day. Everyone was very friendly at the show, meeting new people, and spreading the love that the MCRmy is all about.

When it was finally show time everyone waited in anticipation as My Chem’s crew carefully set up the stage for the show. The security guard mocked us as we all screamed every time the lights dimmed. Finally the lights went black one more time as each member of My Chemical Romance walked on to the stage. The crowd went crazy and they broke into their first song “House of Wolves”

Saturday August 13th 2011 was the day my life changed forever!

It was the day I was finally able to see my favorite band of ALL time!

It was hard to sleep the night before since I was DYING with anticipation. Somehow I had made it through the night and the day of the show had finally arrived! I showed up at the stadium nearly 4 hours early to wait around with friends and fellow fans. Once I received my passes and had gotten into the venue there was nothing left to do but wait! The Hershey Pavilion happens to be a large outside stadium so I was thankful I wouldn’t have to deal with crappy poorly lit concert lighting. Once it was time for MCR's Set I got into place and was ready to shoot my idols! They came out looking great! As a College Photography student this was an AMAZING experience! I was honored to be able to take photos of my HEROES alongside professional photographers! Anyways, I hope you enjoy my photographs as much as I enjoyed taking them! =) This has been an experience I will NEVER forget!
