Back in October 2019, we helped share the news about the reunion of My Chemical Romance (seen HERE) and with that gig being a home run success, the news about a longer and more comprehensive tour has been brought to light. Check it out.
The Press Release:
After performing a sold-out show at the landmark Shrine Expo Hall in Los Angeles on December 20, 2019, My Chemical Romance has announced a full U.S. tour beginning on September 9th in Detroit, MI and finishing on October 11th in Las Vegas, NV. The uncompromising rock group previously announced multiple overseas performances for March, including shows in Milton Keynes, England – two of which sold out (65,000 tickets) in under an hour. Their U.S.-based fans, dubbed Killjoys, have been left anxiously waiting – wait no more….

Tickets will go live Friday, January 31st at 12 PM local time – get them HERE.
In celebration of the band’s return in December, the USC Marching Band performed “Welcome To The Black Parade” outside of the Shrine Expo Hall show HERE.
Formed in Newark, NJ, My Chemical Romance made its debut in 2002 with the independently released album I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love. The band signed to Reprise Records the following year and made its major label debut with 2004’s Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge, now 3x certified Platinum. The album contained the Platinum hit “I’m Not Okay (I Promise),” the Gold-certified “Helena,” and “The Ghost of You.” Rolling Stone hailed their third studio album, The Black Parade (3x Platinum) as one of the top albums of 2006. Lead single “Welcome to the Black Parade” topped both Billboard’s Alternative Songs chart and the UK’s Official Singles chart and is now 3x Platinum. The band toured extensively behind the album – appearing as characters from The Black Parade – and released the live album The Black Parade is Dead! in 2008. Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys was released in 2010 and topped Billboard’s Alternative Albums and Top Rock Albums charts. It was followed by a series of singles which as a whole made up the Conventional Weapons release in 2013. My Chemical Romance’s songs continue to rack up half a billion global streams each year.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ve probably mentioned already that I wasn’t following the group during their initial heyday but have come to appreciate their sound and their overall impact on the fans. I’m going to try to be there for the Brooklyn show since its right in my backyard. I am certain that this will be a sold out performance very quickly and one that will be talked about for years to come. I’m speaking of the whole run of course and not just the Brooklyn show (even though as a resident of the region think that ours will likely trump most of the other nights ;p) What do you readers think about this one and will you be in attendance? Chime in down below in the comments section so we know where everyone’s head is at. See you next time.
