My Chemical Romance's Eden Project Show Has Been Postponed

My Chemical Romance's Eden Sessions gig at The Eden Project in Cornwall was been postponed. The show, planned for June 16, made up one of the summer's planned Eden Sessions programme, all of which organisers hope to rebook for next summer.

"Organisers have been closely assessing the impacts of the global coronavirus pandemic and decided that to ensure the safety and wellbeing of concert-goers, artists, crews, Eden Sessions staff and supporting teams, the Sessions could not go ahead this year," Eden Sessions said in a statement.

"When shows are rescheduled and dates confirmed, the Eden Project will contact all existing ticketholders with details. Original tickets will remain valid for any show that is rescheduled.

"We would like to assure all ticketholders that we share their disappointment but we are sure they will understand why the Sessions cannot go ahead this summer.

"We send our heartfelt thanks to everyone for their patience and understanding while we have worked through these unprecedented times to reach this decision. The good news is that the Eden Sessions will be back in the summer of 2021. We are working hard to reschedule artists booked for 2020 to play next year.

"To everyone who was looking forward to this year’s Sessions and to all past and future concert-goers we say thanks so much for supporting the Eden Sessions.

We send our very best wishes to all and look forward to welcoming everyone back to what promises be an unforgettable season in the summer of 2021."

My Chemical Romance returned to the stage in December for a show at The Shrine Expo Center in California, but have been forced to postponed planned reunion tour dates in Asia and Australia due to COVID-19. At the time of writing, their UK shows at Milton Keynes' Stadium MK on June 18, 20 and 21 have not been cancelled or postponed.
