It's now been a year since My Chemical Romance made their triumphant return at The Shrine, and despite their full 2020 comeback plans not going… well, to plan, members of the band have been reflecting on that night on December 20, 2019.

Sharing a sweet photo of his children in the empty Los Angeles venue looking up at the stage curtain, bassist Mikey Way wrote, "Thinking back to a magical night three hundred and sixty five days ago. Dreaming of the moment when we can do it all again. Until then – Stay safe out there."

Guitarist Frank Iero, meanwhile, posted a pic of an awesome California 2019 commemorative tattoo. "One year ago today was the last 'show' I played in front of a live audience," he said, "and the first show My Chem had played in a little over 7 years.

"Throughout 2020 I have been incredibly fortunate to be able to play a few live streams and collaborate remotely with some ridiculously talented individuals… but as much fun as that has been, I really can’t wait for it to be safe enough to be able to play real shows again.

"Take care of one another. wear a mask, stay safe, and keep the faith."

Of course, while we sadly haven't been able to see any new My Chem live footage this year due to shows being postponed, fans did manage to create an absolutely amazing video of the New Jersey titans' full Shrine set at the time – check that out here.
