My Chemical Romance announce Australian arena tour

The coronavirus pandemic had many impacts, although alternative music fans were particularly disheartened when one of them became the cancellation of the anticipated Download Festival here at home. Headlined by My Chemical Romance, fans lost the unexpected opportunity to see the band reunite on Australian shores after their official disbandment in 2013. But as we begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel from this global health crisis, we’ve also got more and more to look forward to, with the rock legends announcing that while they won’t be performing as part of the festival originally intended, they will hit the land down under for a huge arena tour in March of next year.

Set to take place at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre, Rod Laver Arena and Qudos Bank Arena, the East Coast run will mark My Chemical Romance’s first time back in Australia for almost a decade, with their last appearance dating all the way back to 2012’s Big Day Out Festival. While we haven’t seen new music since the band’s reformation, audiences would be wise to expect a setlist spanning their entire discography, from their debut album I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love to their last official studio album, Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys.

The reunion of My Chemical Romance was initially announced on Halloween, 2019, followed by a performance by the band that December that sold out within minutes. As a precursor to the upcoming tour dates, the band offered “A summoning…“, a short film created and executive produced by frontman Gerard Way and the band’s former manager Brian Schecter. It tracks through each album era of the band, offered alongside the hashtag #MCRXX. What this fresh era means for new material from the revered legends remains unclear, although there is one certainty — you don’t want to waste a second now that they’re back.
