LOS ANGELES, CA Wednesday Dec.20.2006 /netmusiccountdown.com/ -- My Chemical Romance has announced an arena tour this winter featuring Rise Against and Muse as supporting acts.

Frontman Gerard Way said, "We're going to retain the essence of a rock show. It's not going to be like seeing [Pink Floyd's] 'The Wall.' It's going to bring the music and the band and the record to life. It's going to be theatrical without detracting from [the music]; it's not going to be surface over substance."

He added, "We're really focusing on being great performers, then the theatrics will come into play."

The tour kicks off February 22nd in New Hampshire. So far, the band is booked through March 16, but word is more dates will be added soon.
