Looks like Joe Jonas was right. My Chemical Romance will officially reunite—for one night, at least.
The emo rock band recently took to their social media accounts to announce their first live show together in over six years. The reunion concert will take place on December 20 at Los Angeles’ Shrine Expo Hall. Check out My Chemical Romance’s post below:
The show will be MCR’s first live performance together since 2012. They broke up soon after in 2013, after frontman Gerard Way declared the band was “done” in a press statement. The members then embarked on solo music careers. Way also ventured out of music, releasing the comic book turned Netflix original series Umbrella Academy.
However, back in June, the Jonas Brothers’ Joe Jonas revealed that MCR might have reunited. He noted that the band “were rehearsing next to [him] in New York recently,” during an appearance on British radio station KISS FM’s Breakfast Show.
My Chemical Romance’s last full-length album was 2010’s Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys. There’s currently no word on whether the forthcoming concert will be a one-off event, or if the band are plotting an official comeback.
