REVIEW [excerpt]: Concert review: Blink-182 and My Chemical Romance with Matt and Kim at 1-800-Ask-Gary Amphitheatre, Tampa

"..Next up, New Jersey natives My Chemical Romance kicked off their set of anthemic alt rock with "Na Na Na," the first single from their 2010 LP, Danger Days: The True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys, and everyone in the amphitheater surged to their feet, jumping and singing along. There is something extraordinarily theatrical about the way frontman Gerard Way commands the crowd's attention as the dynamic ringleader of this massive rock and roll machine. On this night, his vocals were raw and unforgiving as he continually urged us to jump, clap and participate throughout. Lead guitarist Ray Toro's skilled solos blended flawlessly with guitarist Frank Iero's passionate rhythmic accompaniment as Mikey Way, Gerard's younger brother, pulled everything together with his pounding basslines. Touring keyboardist James Dewees (The Get Up Kids) performed in a full-on vampire costume, complete with a cape and mask as he backed up the band's piano-heavy jams. One-time touring drummer Michael Pedicone (The Bled) had been kicked out of the lineup for betraying the band a few weeks earlier and his replacement, Jarrod Alexander (A Static Lullaby) impressively held his own for someone who'd learned these songs in such a short amount of time. Their performance kept the energy level up and the setlist drew from all four of their albums and included "Our Lady Of Sorrows" from their debut, 2002's I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love. They closed out their set with the haunting balladry of "Cancer" off 2006's The Black Parade"
