Fan Tour Report: Grand Rapids

By. Paige C.

Ever since I first heard “Welcome to the Black Parade” back in 8th grade, My Chemical Romance has had me hooked. From there, I discovered “I’m not Okay”, “Heaven Help Us”, and countless other tracks of theirs that I listened to on repeat, over and over. I bought every CD and downloaded every song I could, dreaming of the day when I could finally see them live. Unfortunately however, because I was in middle school at the time, my parents wouldn’t allow me to attend the Black Parade tour.

This time around, however, I was eighteen. I was finally going to be able to attend their show and I couldn’t wait. I bought tickets online and was planning on attending the Grand Rapids show with my best friend, Zakk. A couple days later, while on the My Chemical Romance fan site, I found the MCR Road Reporter contest and entered it on a whim, thinking of how awesome it would be to win, but never imagining it would happen. Then, however, I got an e-mail back saying that I was getting two free tickets, two backstage/meet-and-greet passes, and a photo pass. I was ecstatic! My excitement was barely containable. When I called Zakk to tell him, half of what I said weren’t even words—it was just me screaming in delight.

Fan Tour Report: Chicago

By. Cassie
As I sit down to type this, my feet are throbbing, I am still covered in a mixture of my own sweat and the sweat of hundreds of other My Chemical Romance fans, my head is pounding, and I feel as if I may soon die. Those are all signs that April 15’s show at Chicago’s Aragon Ballroom was a perfectly destructive force of hot and loud praise and energy exchanged between the “soldiers” of the MCRmy and the men who bring them together.

Fan Report: Denver

By. Joshua M.

For months I had been waiting for the concert. It seemed like every day was longer than the one before it. Walking down the line of fans was like nothing I have ever experienced before! Chalk drawings decorated the sidewalk with pictures and lyrics. It had never even occurred to me to bring sidewalk chalk, but it was a creative idea! The sidewalk symbolized a large painting of all the adventures and stories of the band. People passing by took several glances at the carefully drawn artwork, and were often careful to step around it.

Fan Tour Report: Salt Lake City

April 8, 2011: A Fabulous Killjoy’s Best Day Ever
By Melissa B.

For My Chemical Romance it was Queen, The Misfits, Iron Maiden, Morrissey, The Smiths and many others that inspired and influenced them; but for me, it is My Chemical Romance that inspires and influences my life, as for many other devoted fans from Salt Lake City, Utah to Tokyo, Japan. And on April 8, 2011 in Salt Lake City, the dedication and endless love was shown by the mass crowd of fans that waited outside the doors of the venue with the experience of wind, rain, snow, and eventually some sun that tapped upon our shivering bodies. Nevertheless, the weather did not stop us from attending the concert, and participating in complete World Contamination.
