My Chemical Romance have announced another reunion show, saying they will perform with Thursday in Osaka, Japan.
My Chemical Romance, who will be onstage for the first time in 7 years on December 20 in Los Angeles, have announced another reunion show, saying they will perform with Thursday in Osaka, Japan.
The show is scheduled to take place on March 28, 2020, the night before they headline the Download Festival Japan.
“We are so excited to be coming to Osaka,” the band wrote on social media with a link to purchase tickets.
Thursday vocalist Geoff Rickly, who produced MCR’s 2002 debut album, I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love, recently told Kerrang! that he spoke to frontman Gerard Way, and the singer “said it felt like it was the right time” for them to get back together.
“One of the things he said was, ‘I don’t know if it would have happened if it wasn’t now,'” Rickly said. “And I got what he meant by that. At some point it just becomes too long, like, ‘I don’t think I can get back there, personally. It’s just too distant and too weird.’ So I’m glad that they’re doing it. I think it’s amazing.”
The show in Los Angeles is already sold out. The band has confirmed drummer Jarrod Alexander will play with them at the show, although no information has been given on futures shows.
The band recently shared their first photo since their reunion – a black and white picture that shows MCR sitting on the floor in a rehearsal space.
