Their long-awaited U.S. comeback tour is just over a week away now, and My Chemical Romance are still adding new dates to the run.
The reunited legends – who hit the UK and Europe in spectacular fashion earlier in the year – have just added a new show, with support from hyperpop duo 100 gecs.
The two groups will be playing the Ameris Bank Amphitheatre in Alpharatta, Georgia on Sunday, September 18.
Elsewhere on the tour, My Chem will be supported at various dates by: (in alphabetical order) Badflower, Devil Master, Dilly Dally, GHÖSH, Kimya Dawson, Meg Myers, Midtown, Nothing, Shannon and the Clams, Soul Glo, Surfbort, Taking Back Sunday, The Bouncing Souls, The Homeless Gospel Choir, The Lemon Twigs, Thursday, Turnstile, Waterparks and Youth Code.
Speaking to Kerrang! about how it feels to be supporting their heroes, Waterparks frontman Awsten Knight enthused in June: “I can’t fucking wait. Obviously we’re very tight with Mikey [Way, bass], and I’ve talked to Frank [Iero, guitar] a handful of times, but the other day I got to meet Gerard [Way, vocals] and it was so cool. It was just a by-chance thing, but everybody was so fucking nice, and it’s so weird to meet them people that you watched growing up – and it’s like, ‘Oh my god, they’re really cool, they’re not assholes, this is amazing!’ I was able to thank them for having us, because that’s a big bucket-list thing that I didn’t know would ever get crossed off.”
