While a number of acts are anticipating a return to live music by lining up new tours for the summer and fall, emo icons My Chemical Romance have a massive bummer to deliver: They’re postponing their long-awaited comeback tour until 2022.
The tour was set to be the band’s first in nearly a decade after their split in 2013. It was announced back in 2019 that the emo powerhouse would be reuniting, taking the stage that December for a show at The Shrine in Los Angeles. The tour was then scheduled to begin in 2020, with the majority of their stops quickly selling out. Due to safety concerns surrounding the global pandemic, the tour has been delayed twice. The band is now expected to hit the road in 2022.
The band offered this statement regarding the update:
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 purchased for the tour will continue to be honored for the new dates. Any fans looking to refund their tickets can do so through their point of purchase. Refunds for any U.S. tour dates must be submitted by May 16 of this year, and refunds for fans in New Zealand must be submitted by May 20.
