My Chemical Romance add more dates to rescheduled 2022 tour
My Chemical Romance have announced three more live shows – in Russia and Ukraine – for 2022.
The New Jersey gang have added a trio of gigs in June to their huge comeback run next year, now also performing at St. Petersburg’s Ice Palace, Moscow’s Park Live Festival, and Kiev’s U Park Live on top of their already-announced dates.
“Something that I tried to do, and this was conscious, was relinquish some control,” the frontman explained. “I think about control a lot, and in the years since the band broke up I’ve really examined control in all of its forms. My goal at The Shrine was not to direct the audience to do anything. To let them do what they naturally wanted to do. It became less of working a crowd, as they say, or being an entertainer.
“If I moved my hand, it was because I wanted to do it. I wasn’t trying to get the audience to wave their hands and stuff. I was just performing. To me, the new version of My Chemical Romance and the way I want to go about it is exercising less control.”
Announcing their rescheduled tour last month, My Chem said in a statement: “My Chemical Romance is postponing our 2021 touring plans until 2022. We are deeply sad, but those emotions are only a fraction of the depth of feeling we have all experienced watching the suffering and loss of the past year. We just want to be as sure as we can be that everyone is safe.
“Refunds will be offered to anyone who wants them. We are sorry if this is disappointing, and we really can’t wait to see you in 2022. All tickets will be honored for the new dates. If you are unable to attend, refunds are available at your point of purchase. Refunds are available for a limited time, details on refund windows and rescheduled tour dates can be found here.
“For festivals or events where the new 2022 date has yet to be announced, event organizers will be in touch directly. If you have any questions, please reach out to your point of purchase.”

My Chemical Romance look back at how they formed the day after 9/11, as a “direct result of everything we experienced and witnessed during those horrific events”.
Another fragile dose of new Sleep Token ahead of their album next week.
