Kevin Lyman Tried To Get My Chemical Romance To Play Warped Tour 2019

The founder of the Vans Warped Tour put in the request for My Chemical Romance…

Last week, three festivals were announced in celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Vans Warped Tour.

Featuring some of the scene’s biggest bands – from blink-182 to A Day To Remember to The Offspring – Warped’s quarter-decade celebrations look set to be absolutely massive.

Of course, though, fans couldn’t resist asking founder Kevin Lyman about acts that weren’t on the line-up – including the long-since-disbanded My Chemical Romance.

If we can get My Chemical Romance back together can we please get [them] at Warped Tour Atlantic City?” asked Sami-Jo.

Kevin’s response? A simple: I tried.”

He then added in a separate tweet: It would have been epic to have them. Remember the first time I saw them, they were traveling in a van. They played both Warped and Taste Of Chaos that year and every show was special.”

Oh well.

For those in need of a fresh MCR fix, the band are releasing a special, new vinyl edition of The Black Parade Is Dead! for Record Store Day.

Former My Chem frontman Gerard Way, meanwhile has been busy working on The Umbrella Academy’s live-action TV series, which is out now on Netflix. Here’s what we learned from our binge-watch of it.
