Show Review: Blink 182/My Chemical Romance/Manchester Orchestra
Show Review: Blink 182/My Chemical Romance/Manchester Orchestra
08/16/11 at 07:14 AM by Alex DiVincenzo


What better way to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Honda Civic Tour than by having the inaugural headliner return? When that band is Blink 182, there is simply no other option. While the 2001 tour took place in clubs, the band's (and the tour's) popularity has now landed them in large amphitheaters and the like. Add My Chemical Romance as director support and a good opener - Manchester Orchestra on the first leg - and you have yourself the recipe for yet another memorable year for the tour.

Really good review. I do agree My Chem are better when they headline but they did pretty well with what time they had. Blink was great but it just left me eager for more. Unfortunately I could not get into Manchester Orchestra no matter how much I listened. The guitar was great but the vocals were just not doing it for me. I see why people like them but yea it was a great show.

My Chem's setlist has drastically improved from the first date of the tour, hope that keeps up. Blink has a great setlist, but I'm sad there's no Adam's song

agreed wholeheartedly all around. the show exceeded all expectations for me. i will say this, however, you left out the part where it absolutely poured during Blink's set. but then again, you wouldn't have known that unless you were outside of the pavilion.

Yeah, I was lucky enough to be under the pavilion, in Section 2. There was one point for a few minutes where the rain and wind were so hard that we could feel it even that far under though.

Agree with the Tom part, the recent live vids I've seen of them show that he's firing on all cylinders again. And dicking around on stage like I haven't seen him do in years.

Great show and great tour. I couldn't believe how many people showed up, even with the rain. It seemed like they kept building a fan base even when they were on hiatus

Manchester Orchestra may have a strong following on the site - and rightfully so - but the majority of people at the Comcast Center in Mansfield, MA on August 9 were unfamiliar with the Atlanta-based quintet. As they went on first, the large arena wasn't even half full when they opened with "Everything to Nothing." Fresh off of a slot at Lollaplooza (which was convenient, since I missed them at the festival), the band delivered a half hour of indie rock. I feel that their setlist could have been better, but their performance was solid. Although decidedly different from the acts that they were supporting, the band seemed to have won over some fans by the time they closed with "Pride." Heathrow Parking
