It’s not clear whether or not My Chemical Romance are now reuniting for the first of many shows, or simply just a huge, epic one-off. Given their festival-headlining status before they called it a day, they could quite easily begin a world tour of arenas and stadiums after the Shrine – but that is purely just wishful thinking at this point.
It’s also currently unknown if this comeback will include new music. Gerard and Ray collaborated earlier in the year, recording a couple of cover for the Netflix adaptation of The Umbrella Academy: Hazy Shade Of Winter (Simon & Garfunkel) and Happy Together (The Turtles).
On top of that, all four members have been incredibly creative since 2013, with Gerard and Ray releasing solo albums (Hesistant Alien and Remember The Laughter, respectively), Frank unveiling three full-lengths (.stomachaches., Parachutes and this year’s Barriers), and Mikey getting his New Wave on with Electric Century (For The Night To Control).
