The Used “probably” on My Chemical Romance tour, Bert McCracken hints
With all of this recent My Chemical Romance news, it may seem like the rest of the music world is overlooked. MCR sold out an entire U.S tour in under six hours, the world is still hunting for any sign of new music and they still haven't discussed who would be supporting them for the said tour. Well, the Used might be the answer.
On stage at their Colorado show last week, the Used's Bert McCracken might have been joking when he said they might be opening for My Chemical Romance this fall, or he might be serious.
Tickets for My Chemical Romance's tour went on sale Friday, Dec. 31. After an immediate sellout of their Newark, NJ date, they added one more. In total, they ended up adding four additional dates, three of which are for the Forum in Los Angeles, CA.
Meanwhile, the Used are currently working on their eighth studio album, which will mark the follow-up to 2017’s The Canyon. Their most recent single was "Blow Me" back in December. The Used are currently on an intimate club tour, hitting intimate venues to play the smallest rooms they’ve played in more than a decade. McCracken also recently made headlines for being in the studio with Machine Gun Kelly for MGK's pop-punk album Tickets To My Downfall.
Well now, on two separate occasions, McCracken has reportedly said that they might be opening for My Chemical Romance this fall. Once in Colorado as stated with video evidence, and once more in Chicago, IL as reported by Reddit u/XlunalinaX.
Far be it from us to assume that McCracken is not joking but if that's true, it would be one hell of a show. The Used and My Chemical Romance have toured together before. In 2005, the two played a headlining tour with Killswitch Engage known as Taste of Chaos. That same year, the Used and My Chemical Romance collaborated on the classic "Under Pressure" by Queen and David Bowie.
We'll keep our fingers and toes crossed that this news is true, but, given how secretive every single announcement that My Chemical Romance had done thus far, we doubt they would be happy with McCracken just dropping that little fun fact about their fall tour. Only time will tell.
