The Black Parade...

Sunday March 11, 2007,
The Anaheim Convention Center.
Opening Band: Rise Against

Before the band hit the stage the house lights were put out and Pink Floyd's Another Brick in the Wall Pt. 2 came on. The crowd chanted the lyrics in unison with 'We don't need no education' and kept the momentum going until through the darkness of the arena a gurney was placed in the center of the stage. The heart monitor beep that begins My Chemical Romance's album, The Black Parade, filled the arena along with the screams of their fans. A spotlight shot out and focused on Gerard Way, lead singer, and the concert was well under way. My Chemical Romance, performing under the guise of The Black Parade, went on to perform the entire album on stage, complete with Pink Floyd like balloons that flew overhead, a backdrop that was one part art deco architecture like that of Hugh Ferriss and Otto Wagner.
Afterwards both my wife and I got to meet the band courtesy of my cousin, who works for them.
Also in attendance was the great Grant Morrison, who happens to be friends with MCR. All in all, a good sunday.
