My Chemical Romance makes a Comeback for a Reunion Tour in 2020
The EMO / Alternative Rock band, My Chemical Romance announced last year to their extremely gratified fans that they were back together and that they could expect a "My Chemical Romance tour 2020".
Starting in June 2019 rumours of MCR getting back together started to leak. It all began with Joe Jonas of the Jonas Brothers revealing during an interview with KISS FM that while he was in a studio in New York, MCR were rehearsing right next door to them.
"I've got some dirt," he announced on a video "My Chemical Romance were apparently rehearsing next to us in New York recently, which — I thought they broke up, so…that's the gossip!"
After that bit of info, Frank Iero the MCR guitarist, dodged questions in all the interviews relating to a My Chemical Romance reunion. Later the lead guitarist explained how he had carefully worded his answers.
Frank had called the MCR band "a broken clock" after being asked if they would ever get back together. Much later he tweeted that "Some might think that I meant to say broken record" he added "but I did not. Because even a broken clock is right twice a day."
Then in July 2019 he started dropping more hints about the possibility of a My Chemical Romance reunion tour. When asked questions about a reunion he stated "I survived a bus accident, so anything is possible…"
Finally he hilariously alluded to the "hint" that Joe Jonas had dropped. He posted a video where he confided "Hey, got a little dirt for ya, a little scoopy poop. Apparently The Ramones are playing down the hall from us in Moscow. Thought those guys were supposed to be dead or something. I don't know what that's about."
The band's lineup consists of Gerard Way on vocals, Ray Toro and Frank Iero on guitars and Mikey Way on bass. They are all founding members except for Frank Iero who joined a bit later. Their debut album I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love, was released in 2002. In 2006 they received a double platinum with The Black Parade.
The band had announced its break up on March 22nd, 2013, which was just one month after the release of a series of singles, titled Conventional Weapons. After the band's split, they complied and released an album of all their greatest hits by the name May Death Never Stop You in March 2014. Then in 2016 a tenth-anniversary reissue of The Black Parade, that was named The Black Parade/Living with Ghosts was released on September of 2016.
The band reunited discretely without being in the public eye in 2017. In October 2019 they announced a reunion show to take place in Los Angeles on December 20, 2019. From there it was a short leap to extend this to a tour with dates in Australia, New Zealand and Japan. Finally end of January 2020, saw the band announce the long awaited North American tour.
The "My Chemical Romance reunion tour 2020" will be the band's first set of live shows in North America since 2012. Chemical Romance tour 2020 was the perfect moment to be launched. 2019 marks the 15th anniversary of their breakthrough album Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge.
The North American leg of the tour launched on September 9th, 2020 at the Little Caesars Arena in Detroit and wraps up October 16th, 2020 at The Forum in Inglewood. Among other cities you can get tickets to "My Chemical Romance tour 2020" in Denver, Dallas, Oakland, Sacramento and Las Vegas.
