My Chemical Romance’s North American tour went on sale this past Friday, sending emo kids into a frenzy. The entire tour reportedly sold out in record time, selling 228,600 tickets in under six hours.
According to a press release, the rock group needed to add another date at Newark’s Prudential Center and three more gigs at The Forum in Los Angeles, which have already sold-out as well. Despite selling-out, tickets are still available via secondary ticketing sites.
On Friday, fans lashed out on Ticketmaster for its “Dynamic Pricing” model. Originally, pit tickets were priced at $200, followed by $129, $99, $79, and $59 throughout the rest of the venue. However, due to high demand, Ticketmaster began to increase the prices, which reached upwards $1,000. Fans expressed their frustration after many were left with error messages and waited hours in an online queue just to leave empty-handed.
The group just announced their return to the music scene this past Halloween after breaking up in 2013. They last released the record Danger Days: The True Lives of Fabulous Killjoys in 2010 and haven’t toured North America in nine years. Throughout the early 2000’s, the Gerard Way-led band garnered attention for smash-hits like “Welcome To The Black Parade” and “I’m Not Okay (I Promise),” gaining a cult-like following from fans across the globe.
