Thursday add gigs with Chris Conley (Saves The Day) around MCR show
It was revealed on social media Nov. 8 that Thursday would be playing the Dec. 20 show with My Chemical Romance at The Shrine. The tickets sold out immediately for the 6,300 capacity venue. Because of this, Thursday wanted to give their fans a chance to see them.
Many of you know that we are opening for our dear friends, My Chemical Romance, for their long-awaited return at the Shrine on December 20th. As that show has been sold out from 3 seconds after it went on sale, we thought it only right to add a couple of shows for all of our friends and fans who won’t be able to attend.
We are playing two special/secret warmup shows, on the 18th in San Diego and on the 19th at the legendary Roxy. On Saturday the 21st we’ll be ending the year with a special West Coast version of our Holiday Show at one of our oldest stomping grounds: the Glasshouse in Pomona.
In keeping with this celebration of friendship and legacy, Chris Conley of Saves the Day will be joining us, to play a selection of classic songs. Tickets go on sale Friday!
What's even more exciting about Thursday playing multiple shows is that Chris Conley of Saves the Day will also be joining them to play some hits.
Tickets for the events go on sale Friday, Nov. 15 and can be purchased here. The full list of dates is below.
12/18 — San Diego, CA @ Brick By Brick
12/19 — Los Angeles, CA @ The Roxy
12/20 — Los Angeles, CA @ The Shrine
12/21 — Pomona, CA @ The Glasshouse
More on Thursday
Sounds Of The Underground is a CBS show dedicated to showcasing rising acts along with established artists. AltPress is exclusively showing the second episode. Spoiler: Frank Iero And The Future Violents perform “Basement Eyes” from their 2019 album, Barriers. While on the show, Frank discusses all things from Danny DeVito to Thursday.
The guitarist compared the actor to the state’s beloved Taylor’s Prepared Ham—a processed pork-based meat made in state. “Danny DeVito is the Taylor Ham of nature,” he asserted with a grin.
The Wildfires Projekt’s songwriter Johnny Zirkel and Iero discussed his career. Iero has played with Future Violents, formerly the cellabration (2014) and the Patience (2016). “I love that excitement in naming [a band], who is going to be in it, what it’s going to sound like, what the aesthetic behind it is,” Iero says. “It’s just so much fun.”
Iero admitted that it’s taken 20 years for him to arrange the band. He recalled seeing current members Tucker Rule, drummer for Thursday, and Matt Armstrong, former bassist of Murder By Death, for the first time when My Chemical Romance, Thursday and Murder By Death all initially signed to Eyeball Records before he and the Future Violents took the stage to perform an acoustic take of “Basement Eyes.”
