PARTE DE LA RESEÑA QUE ART ROCKER PUBLICO EN SU VERSION ORIGINAL .
After our goodbyes we are guided back past the manic fans, many supporting home-made tshirts and starting queue length sing-a-longs as we pass. With such devotion from so many people it comes as a shock to discover the show isn’t sold out. Several years ago the tickets for this show would have been snapped up within minutes of going on sale, but such is the fickle nature of the music fan. While the chart toppers and pop starlets are kept in the limelight year round, My Chemical Romance are still coming off the back of a two year break and horrific media backlash from the UK especially.
However, even without the fringe listeners who only listen to what the radio dictates, the room looks packed. That’s why openers LostAlone walk onstage to a room of thousands which its soon obvious they are not really ready for. Although they give it a good shot, throwing themselves about the stage and trying hard for crowd participation, their music translates as over simplified pop rock that the crowd seem to find little meaning with. Leaving the stage to mild applause they fared better than many may have expected, but overall left much to be desired.
The Blackout, on the other hand obviously shares a fair few fans with tonight’s headliners. They are offered a very warm welcome as front men Sean Smith and Gavin Butler bound around like hyper children. Their songs are catchy and have the right parts in the right places, but it is their performance that raises them to a higher standard. They use their own energy to engage with the crowd and refuse to let casual Scottish vs. English racism get in the way of stage banter, leading to a highly entertaining set. With strong hooks such as “Children of The Night” and “Spread Legs Not Lies”, they do a good job of warming up the crowd with the only main complaint when they finish being that they missed out old favourite “I’m a Riot? You’re a Fucking Riot!”.
And so it is the headliner’s turn. By now the room looks almost full; you wouldn’t guess it wasn’t sold out unless you asked someone in the know. And judging by the noise when the curtain finally drops after an intro from DJ Dr Death Defy to reveal the band playing the opening bars to “Na Na Na”, any thoughts of ticket sales and numbers are quickly forgotten. The band rip through old and new songs alike, with favourites from second album “Hang ‘Em High” and “Give ‘Em Hell Kid” sitting nicely alongside new outings “SING”, and “Vampire Money”. Guitarist Frank Iero agressively throws himself around whilst flame-haired front man Gerard Way stalks the stage singing each word with such ferocity and meaning you can’t help but get caught up in the songs.
As the set progresses it becomes clearer that My Chemical Romance probably do not care that tonight isn’t sold out and why should they? It is clear from the passion that the crowd displays, singing back every word of each and every song that they have no need for casual listeners. It would be easy to pass off the devotion of My Chemical Romance fans as misguided teenagers, but as you glance around the room you will notice men and women of all ages singing back just as passionately as the kids down the front, and the buzz from the band can be felt all the way to the rafters.
By the time My Chemical Romance finish their set with the epic “Vampires Will Never Hurt You” from their debut album it is clear that they are never going to have to worry about a loss in popularity. Their devotion to their music and fans is returned to them tenfold tonight, and you get the feeling that no matter how many years they may take off for a break or how long they are out the limelight, they will always have their well deserved following and as they leave the stage with promises of returning in the summer, most will already be putting money aside to buy a ticket.
My Chemical Romance’s new single, ‘Planetary (GO!)’ is released March 21st worldwide and they are set to play T In The Park festival this July.
