After My Chemical Romance announced that the band would reunite for a show at Los Angeles’ The Shrine Expo Hall, tickets sold out almost immediately—in around three minutes, to be exact.
Lead singer Gerard Way and members Frank Iero, Ray Toro and Mikey Way each took to Instagram Halloween night 2019 to announce the concert. The announcement came with a picture of Roman statues, with the caption “Like Phantoms Forever.” Then, an exuberant chaos broke out amongst the Killjoys. The My Chemical Romance fans out there who’ve been waiting for this since 2012, when the band took to the Bamboozle stage for their “final” show.
According to the band, the reaction to the reunion show was unprecedented and completely unexpected: “It is truly unbelievable to us the happiness we have experienced over the past two days. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for the warm welcome back. We truly did not expect this. See you soon.”
Last month MCR played that Los Angeles show, their first in seven years. Following the warm reception they were met with and continued online buzz around their potential comeback, the band is out with more concerts and possibly an album teaser.
On January 19th, My Chemical Romance released the video scored by an instrumental track. The clip follows a cloaked figure as he makes his way through a forest. The video culminates in a dark screen revealing amazing news for MCR fans in the U.K. Watch the clip, titled “An Offering…,” below.
Fans, it appears that My Chemical Romance will perform Milton Keynes on June 20, 2020. And if we were to put money on it, we think there are still more My Chemical Romance 2020 Tour Dates to come.
Could MCR also be teasing a new album? Though we wouldn’t hold our breath—their last album being 2010’s Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys—we wouldn’t be surprised if the band decides to drop a reissue of their seminal album, 2004’s Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge, this year.
