Will The Used Open for My Chemical Romance on 2020 Tour?
My Chemical Romance finally announced their first U.S tour in nine years this past Wednesday, sending fans into a frenzy. The tickets went on sale on Friday, Jan. 31 at noon and sold out within six hours. Many of us fans have been wondering and theorizing about who will open for My Chemical Romance on their 2020 tour. Rumor has it that The Used is a possible opener for the tour.
Last week at a Colorado show, Bert McCracken of The Used announced they may be opening on My Chemical Romance's 2020 tour. A twitter user tweeted about it and included a video. In the video, Bert is seen putting on a flannel and then saying, "I feel like I'm in My Chemical Romance. You can probably catch us on tour with My Chemical Romance in the fall. We'll see."
As The Used is currently on tour, their tour dates do not conflict with any of My Chemical Romance's tour dates.
This is not a farfetched idea since they have a long history together. In 2004, they were both on the Vans Warped Tour and Bert often joined the MCR on stage. They toured together back in 2005, headlining the Killswitch Engage tour. My Chemical Romance and The Used also collaborated in 2005 covering "Under Pressure" by Queen and David Bowie. In the 2006 documentary/video diary Life on the Murder Scene you see footage of Gerard Way and Bert McCracken together. The Used tour manager at the time, Brian Schechter, talked about how he got them to meet and suggested that The Used take My Chemical Romance on tour. Brian Schechter was also My Chemical Romance's manager at the time.
Will My Chemical Romance and The Used be reunited for their 2020 tour? We can only hope.
