The New Jersey emo heroes’ long-awaited return to the road has officially been pushed back to 2022, with a statement reading:
“My Chemical Romance is postponing our 2021 touring plans until 2022. 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 will be honored for the new dates. If you are unable to attend, refunds are available at your point of purchase. Refunds are available for a limited time, details on refund windows and rescheduled tour dates can be found here.
“For festivals or events where the new 2022 date has yet to be announced, event organizers will be in touch directly. If you have any questions, please reach out to your point of purchase.”

My Chemical Romance have announced they have been forced to cancel their first UK appearance since reuniting after Eden Sessions announced that all 2021 shows have been postponed.
With the easing of lockdown restrictions in the UK not allowing large scale events to come into play until at least June 21st 2021, My Chemical Romance‘s Eden Sessions show (which was scheduled to take place on June 15th 2021) has been forced to reschedule to a later date.
A festival spokesperson has said:
“The Eden Sessions series of concerts planned for June and July of this year (2021) will not take place, the Eden Project announced today.
Regrettably the uncertainties around staging the series due to the impacts of the pandemic and restrictions on outdoor audiences mean that the summer Sessions have had to be postponed.
We are working to reschedule the shows. When new dates are confirmed, the Eden Project will contact existing ticket-purchasers with details. Original tickets will remain valid for any show that is rescheduled.
We share the disappointment of ticket-purchasers but we are sure you will understand why the Sessions cannot go ahead this summer.
We send our heartfelt thanks to everyone for their patience and understanding so far and while we work to reschedule the concerts.
Thanks for your support of the Eden Sessions.”

Following the release of the cover of “Happy Together”, and the upcoming release of “The Umbrella Academy” on Netflix, The Guardian uploaded an interview with Gerrard Way, with the musician shutting down talks of a reunion.
Discussing the band’s 2010 record Danger Days, Gerard opened up about the pressure of My Chem: “When things start to succeed and go really well, that’s when a lot of people start to have an opinion and that’s when you run into the struggle. Everybody had a fucking opinion about what MCR should be. So it made it difficult to figure out what direction to take next. You get caught up in this trap of, ‘Is it ever gonna be good enough?’”
“It wasn’t fun to make stuff any more,” he added. “I think breaking up the band broke us out of that machine.”
On receiving offers to reunite: “It’s flattering, it’s really nice of people…” he said, before adding: “I miss playing with the guys, but I don’t think so…”
