After a six-year hiatus, My Chemical Romance fans are finally getting exactly what they want--a reunion.
The band announced on Twitter that they'll be getting back together for a reunion show in Los Angeles (Tickets) at Shrine Expo Hall on Dec. 20. Tickets go on sale this Friday, Nov. 1, and AXS Premium seating will also be available.
It will be their first show since 2012. Rumors of a reunion have circulated multiple times in the years since, including when the band's website and social-media accounts were updated in 2016, only to announce a special-edition version of album The Black Parade with unreleased demos and rarities. The rumors started up again earlier this year after Joe Jonas claimed that My Chemical Romance was using a rehearsal space next to the Jonas Brothers' own rehearsal space, but guitarist Frank Iero disputed Jonas' claim, calling the Jonas Brothers "a Disney band" and saying, "Sorry, it’s not gonna happen."
Over the course of 12 years as a band, My Chemical Romance released four albums while they were together. The last was Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys, released in 2010. The members have all pursued other projects in the years since.
