REVIEW: My Chemical Romance At Festival Hall In Melbourne

What happened to all the emos? Remember when they were everywhere? Well it seems they grew up, and last night plenty of former emos were out in full force at My Chemical Romance's Melbourne Big Day Out sideshow.

 While there weren't many black side fringes or heavy male eyeliner, there was a decent number of girls with pink hair and plenty of tight jeans. And they were all ready to see one thing -- MCR. You know the crowd are excited when people are getting pulled out of the mosh pit by security guards before the band has even hit the stage.

 We were all a little bit confused when the lights dimmed and a young boy appeared on stage. But he received a massive cheer when he started to talk about the nicest guys he's ever met -- My Chemical Romance. He introduced the band, and the crowd was ready to rock.

 They kicked things off with 'Na Na Na (Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na)' to the sound of absolutely deafening screams. The crowd on the floor were having the time of their lives. People were crowd surfing from pretty much the moment the boys hit the stage. There was some pretty energetic mosh dancing/fighting going on (is that a thing?), and everyone's arms were going crazy in time with Gerard's movements.

 There was a good mix of MCR classics like 'Teenagers' and 'Welcome To The Black Parade', as well as plenty of tracks from their most recent album 'Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoy'.

Gerard is the type of frontman who really enjoys performing for a crowd. He's not the depressed stereotypical singer of an emo band that you might have expected to see five years ago. He is energetic, charismatic, and loves his fans.

It was all over too soon. My ears are still ringing today -- My Chemical Romance definitely know how to put on a good show.

I give this concert 8 emo fringes out of 10.
