REVIEW: Honda Civic Tour
Xcel Energy Center and Honda presents…My Chemical Romance and Blink-182 on the Honda Civic Tour
Hitting the stage and not stopping until 90 minutes later. Dirty jokes and dirty talk between songs, well if you know them you know what you get. I was not expecting a stage show that seems right out of 80′s. The stage consisted of the band, a gigantic video screen, and a ton of stage lights. While sitting in back directly in front of the stage it looked 3D, but with no glasses! Oh yeah, did I mention the insane use of lasers? I’m not sure if it’s just me, but I applaud anyone that uses lasers. Travis took a page right out of Tommy Lee’s drum solo secret manual. When seeing the set list I saw the drum solo was 3rd to last song. And I thought ‘why would anyone do a drum solo then?’… sure enough they showed me why. When you go to this years Honda Civic Tour (which I would highly recommend) do not leave early. You have to see this drum solo, which I’m not about to spoil.
The stage show and video screens are amazing and have showed me once again how surprised you can be by a concert. Overall, a great show!
