In huge news for their fans, My Chemical Romance have announced a massive reunion show, their first show since the band’s 2013 split. The band said goodbye via a Gerard Way note, six years ago, which always hinted at a possible reunion.
The frontman told My Chemical Romance’s huge following that while the band were officially done he admitted the spirit of the band “can never die. It is alive in me, in the guys, and it is alive inside all of you. I always knew that, and I think you did too. Because it is not a band—it is an idea.”
It’s most certainly something that Gerard Way lived by. He recently spoke about how the band had helped him and the rest of the band recover from PTSD following the 9/11 attacks in 2001. My Chemical Romance would go on to write songs which would provide an outlet for a generation of kids before their split.
Their last gig was in 2012 but now the band have announced their reunion show at the Shrine Expo Hall in Los Angeles California at Friday, December 20th. Fans across the world will be hoping that its success will usher in a new tour. Tickets go on sale on November 1st right here.
At a recent event to promote his new film Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, which hits cinemas next month, Kevin Smith confirmed that My Chemical Romance’s Gerard Way will score his forthcoming film Clerks 3.
The maker of some of the most iconic cult flicks of the last few years, Smith has managed to convince the My Chemical Romance frontman to return to music following a lengthy hiatus. During that time Way has been concentrating on his comic book series The Umbrella Academy.
According to SlashFilm, Smith told a fan Q&A while promoting the latest hotly anticipated instalment of the Jay & Silent Bob series, that he had confirmed the singer to take charge of the score.
