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 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.”
Then, Will My Chemical Romance Tour in 2020? Given how overwhelming the reception to their one reunion show this year, will My Chemical Romance use the momentum to launch a full reunion tour?
We think so. Perhaps not until after The Shrine Expo Hall concert on December 20th, but we would be surprised if MCR didn’t decide to hit the road after finding out that, in just a mere three minutes, they sold out a 6,300-capacity venue.
Though we wouldn’t hold our breath for another MCR album—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, leading up to the reunion show.
