My Chemical Romance have announced their long-awaited return to Australian shores, the band will play three headline tour dates in March 2022.

It’s been a DECADE  (!!!) a literal DECADE since the band last performed in Australia as part of Big Day Out 2012. They’re back! It’s finally happening! All journalistic etiquette is being thrown out of the window for this announcement my friends. We’re channelling the spirit of Wattpad. Anything goes!!

My Chemical Romance were set to tour Australia last year as part of Download Festival, unfortunately a certain little virus reared its ugly mug and everything went south.

I am EXCITED!! I am ready to experience something BIBLICAL total TRANSCENDENCE!! LET’S GO!! We’re not doing anything half-pie here. We’re kohling our under eyes, we’re throwing together whatever outfit we can that conjures the glory of Myspace gothic-chic. I want to see Sydney Olympic Park alight with Manic Panic hair dye, I want to hear a symphony of GHD straighteners. There’s a decade of suppressed emotion brought on by endlessly rewatching The Black Parade Is Dead! that begs to be exorcised.

The tour will see the band hit the east coast of Australia for three arena shows. The tour will kick off at Entertainment Centre in Brisbane on Monday, March 14th before heading to Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne on Thursday, March 17 and finally Qudos Bank Area on Saturday, March 19th.

General public tickets will go on sale on Thursday, May 27th at 12 pm. The Live Nation pre-sale will kick off on at 11am Wednesday, May 26th and run until 11am Thursday, May 27th.
