‘My Chemical Romance’ Announce UK Show Following Cryptic Tweets

Published on January 21, 2020

After My Chemical Romance held a reunion show last month, who really knew what else the rock band had up their sleeves? Well, it looks like they do have more coming for their fans.

On Sunday, the band’s official Twitter account posted a two minute and 20 second video titled “An Offering…”

The video features a hooded figure walking through a forest, while previously unheard instrumentals are featured in the background; this caused some to believe that it could be new music. The figure then meets up with other hooded figures who walk towards a pentagram drawn in the dirt, with one of them plunging a knife into the symbol.

At the end of the video, a black screen appears with information for an upcoming stadium show in Milton Keynes, UK that will happen in June; ticket information has yet to be released.

Prior to the show announcement, MCR tweeted a Union Jack flag emoji, with a photo of one of hooded figures earlier in the month.

In addition, they tweeted a short video with a United States flag emoji, possibly hinting that a show or tour will come stateside.

The Comeback

The return of My Chemical Romance has been anything but short of iconic. The group announced their split in May of 2013, with Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys being their last studio album as a group—or so we thought.

However, last Halloween—after six and a half years—the group announced a December reunion show in Los Angeles at the Shrine Expo Hall. Tickets went on sale the next day and sold out in minutes, but that show just the beginning of MCR’s comeback. Throughout the end of 2019, they also announced appearances at festivals in Australia, New Zealand and Japan.

In the words of this beloved band, I’m not okay, but I and many others cannot wait to see what 2020 brings for MCR.
