My Chemical Romance fans around the world are expressing their sadness as the band has just played their last scheduled show of their reunion tour. The emo legends initially disbanded in 2013, but their first show back was on December 20th, 2019, at the Shrine Auditorium & Expo Hall in Los Angeles, where they grossed a record-breaking $1.5 million, the highest amount ever generated by any show held in the venue’s history.
After being postponed due to COVID, the band finally kicked off their reunion tour last summer with two shows at The Eden Project in Cornwall, followed by gigs across Europe and North America. They even headlined the When We Were Young Festival. Earlier this month, My Chemical Romance played shows in New Zealand and Australia, followed by two performances in Japan. However, the band has not confirmed any additional live dates or spoken about new music.
During their Osaka show, My Chemical Romance played songs from their back catalogue, including ‘Foundations of Decay,’ the only new song released since their reunion, and an unreleased “noise jam” called ‘Everybody Hates the Eagles’.
The band’s loyal fans, known as the MCRmy, are sharing their sadness on social media as they come to terms with the end of the reunion tour. Many are hopeful that this won’t be the last time they see the band perform live and are eagerly waiting for news of more live shows or new music. Despite the uncertainty, fans continue to support the band’s legacy and express gratitude for the impact their music has had on their lives.
