My Chemical Romance to Auction Tickets for Japan Earthquake Relief

My Chemical Romance

by Cindy Robinson

New Jersey’s Starland Ballroom has teamed up with the American Red Cross and a host of rock’s most popular bands currently on tour to auction off concert tickets and meet & greets with artists like Coheed & Cambria, All Time Low, Three Days Grace and New Jersey’s own My Chemical Romance.

Most of these shows sold out  months ago so it’s a great opportunity for fans to grab a pair of tickets to see their favorite band with 100% of the auction proceeds going to the Red Cross effort to support the people in Japan after the dual disasters of the massive earthquake and tsunami have brought the country to its knees.

The auctions went live today, St. Patrick’s Day, March 17th (hey, don’t forget to pinch your co-workers who didn’t wear green!) and they run for a week until March 24th, 2011. Auction details from the Starland Ballroom state, “Each auction will run from 3pm EST Thursday, March 17th until 3pm EST Thursday, March 24th. Each auction will start at $100, with increments of $10. Please forward any questions to info@starlandballroom.com.”

Let’s see some great numbers on these auctions for New Jersey’s hometown boys.

“It’s with profound sadness that we have to inform you that Mick finally lost his battle with cancer and passed away peacefully at 4.30pm today, 4th January 2011 at home in Chelsea, London.  He was surrounded by his family and friends and will be deeply missed by all.”

Mick was an innovative and eclectic bass player who rose to fame in the late 70’s with the glam rock band Japan. Just last year Mick contributed to the David Bowie tribute album on his version of the Bowie classic, Ashes to Ashes.

A look back at the classic Japan track, Gentlemen Take Polaroids, that has stood the test of time. Thank you for your contributions to music Mick, you will be missed. Messages of condolence for his family can be left in the message section of Mick’s official site.
