My Chemical Romance’s UK Tour Rescheduled For June 2021
My Chemical Romance have announced that their UK tour has been rescheduled for 2021.
MCR were slated to play five shows across the UK and Ireland this June, but the whole tour has been moved until June 2021.
The band will now play the Eden Project in Cornwall on June 15, three nights Stadium MK in Milton Keynes on June 17, 19 and 20, plus a show at Royal Hospital Kilmainham in Dublin on June 22.
“Due to the current coronavirus pandemic, we have had to make the hard decision to postpone our UK dates to 2021,” they say. “We have not taken this decision lightly and have to put the health of our fans and families first. We hope you understand and we will be back bigger than ever.
“The new dates will be Thursday 17, Saturday 19 and Sunday 20 June 2021 at Stadium MK. Your tickets will remain valid for the days of the week you purchased your tickets for. Refunds are available from point of purchase.
“Thank you for your understanding.”
The emo legends were also due to perform at the Eden Project in Cornwall on June 16 this year, but the show was postponed earlier this month due to ongoing circumstances.
“When we first announced My Chemical Romance would play the Sessions we saw this as a massive coup and the response from fans has been phenomenal,” says Eden Sessions director David Harland.
“Now we’re delighted to be able to confirm they will be with us next year, almost exactly a year on from the day we would have welcomed them.”
Earlier this month, My Chem released a series of facemasks to raise money for Musicares’ COVID-19 fund.
“We are living in strange times, alienating times, scary times,” said the band. “These masks were the brainchild of our beloved Lauren Valencia, who died before this madness, not of the COVID-19 pandemic, but the older evil that is cancer.
“We had these masks made to keep you dust-free in the desert, a show that never happened, never will, a protection that then seemed timeworn. And here we are, with these masks, as though Lauren was prescient or we were unknowingly waiting for the right time…”
Hatebreed frontman Jamey Jasta, My Chemical Romance guitarist Frank Iero and more have teamed up for a rousing cover of Earth A.D. by the Misfits.
Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan says he was drinking “a full gallon of vodka a day” at the height of his alcohol addiction.
