The project was filmed Oct. 7, 2007, at Mexico City's Palacio de los Deportes, and Oct. 24, 2007, at the tiny Maxwell's in Hoboken, N.J. The CD portion sports 13 tracks, a track list it shares with disc one of the DVD, taped in Mexico City. The second DVD disc boasts 18 songs from the Hoboken show.
In addition, "The Black Parade Is Dead!" can be purchased in a limited edition package housed in a pinewood coffin box, featuring a hand-painted Day of the Dead mask created by a band member and an autographed, numbered "Death Certificate of Authenticity."
"These shows were some of the most memorable and fun we've ever had onstage," bassist Mikey Way says. "The kids at the Mexico City show actually overpowered the PA, and their voices were deafening. The Maxwell's show was complete pandemonium, and the video captures the feeling of and old school MCR show, the way it was way back when."
