Killjoys from around the world had waited in anticipation for a shot to make it through the waiting room, queues, and lines in order to purchase tickets for a highly sought after North American Tour.
My Chemical Romance posted had posted on Facebook a huge thank you for all of the fans who purchased tickets. Even though the band stated that there was no way that they would come back again, they managed to surprise us all nine years later.

January 29th (Los Angeles, CA) — It has been nine years since My Chemical Romance toured the US. Following their sold out show at the Shrine Auditorium in LA on December 20th, it has finally been announced the My Chem will be touring the United States once more starting September 9th in Detroit, MI and wrapping up on Las Vegas, NV on October 11th. Not only are they kicking it off in the United States, they’re making monumental moves overseas. Starting in late March, including two sold out shows in Milton Keynes, England estimating roughly 130,000 ticket sales in less then one hour.
It’s with this landmark concert that MCR ceases to be a nostalgic act, and proves its mettle as a timeless, rock & roll band for the ages.
My Chemical Romance made their debut in 2002, independently releasing I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me You Love and quickly signing to Reprise Records the following year. In 2004, My Chem released the major label debut Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge which is now certified 3 times platinum. The album contains certified-platinum and our favorite hit “I’m Not Okay (I Promise)”, and two gold-certified tracks “Helena” and “The Ghost of You”.
Rolling Stone has hailed The Black Parade as one of the top albums of 2006, while the title track “Welcome to the Black Parade” topped Billboard’s Alternative Songs and the UK’s Official Singles charts, the track which is now 3x platinum and easily the most recognizable one note song by fans everywhere.
It was physically impossible to stand in that room and not understand to the core of your being why this band means so much to so many people.
The success of My Chemical Romance does not end there, in 2008 the band released a live album title The Black Parade is Dead! while touring exclusively. Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys released in 2010 topping Billboard’s Alternative Albums and Top Rock Albums charts, which was followed by a series of singles that made up the Conventional Weapons release in 2013. It’s been seven years since a new track has been seen from My Chemical Romance and yet they still manage to rack up half a billion global streams each year.
