My Chemical Romance announce North American reunion tour
It's been nine years since we last saw them on tour.
My Chemical Romance is hitting the road for a full-lengthed North American tour — after a years-long hiatus — and we’re NOT OKAY (we promise).
Much to the excitement of their fans, the band — that consists of lead vocalist Gerard Way, guitarists Ray Toro and Frank Iero, and bassist Mikey Way — announced the tour Wednesday with a cryptic video posted to their social platforms.
The 13-minute-long film (above), titled “A summoning…”, showcased multiple MCR Easter eggs referencing the band’s four studio albums and several familiar faces from past music videos.

The band, which formed in 2001, split in 2013 after more than a decade of playing shows together. Their legacy includes albums Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge (2004) and The Black Parade (2006), both of which earned platinum and double-platinum statuses, respectively.
Last year, the band teased a reunion by resurfacing their social media channels with updated graphics. They followed their resurfacing by playing a reunion show last December at Shrine Expo Hall in Los Angeles.
The North American leg of the 2020 tour will kick off in September after a summer-long jaunt through Australia, Asia and Europe. The tour will conclude in Las Vegas in October. For tickets and more info, click here.
