My Chemical Romance Plot Spring Tour
"It's going to be a celebration of color," guitarist Ray Toro says of 24-date trek.
My Chemical Romance will hit the road for a 24-date tour next April in support of their new album Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys (out next week). The trek – dubbed the World Contamination Tour – kicks off April 1 in Portland, OR and wraps on May 24 in Phoenix, AZ. Check out dates below.
When SPIN.com caught up with guitarist Ray Toro to preview the album, he offered an early peek at the production for the tour. Expect bold visuals and bright costumes – a stark contrast to their last Black Parade Tour.
“It’s going to be a celebration of color,” says Toro. “The costumes for Black Parade were a restrictive military look. But what’s cool about the Killjoys [the main characters of the new album] is that there’s a lot more freedom and life, even in the way we dress. It looks cobbled together from different styles and it’s really open and free.”
Starting November 17, My Chem will offer a ticket pre-sale through their fan club; general on-sales kick off November 20.
