My Chemical Romance fans in Japan are reportedly not getting to see the band as soon as they expected as the band are postponing their Download Festival appearance as well as their other shows.

Now, the band are allegedly working on rescheduling the shows. According to the alleged statement, tickets holders will be able to attend the dates the band are rescheduling with the original tickets.

Luckily, according to the statement refunds will be available once dates are rescheduled with further details to come. People with travel plans should be able to recoup some of their expenses. You can see that below.

"We regret to announce that Download Japan 2020 and My Chemical Romance show in Osaka will be postponed.

According to another Twitter user though, they're receiving a followup email after this one saying there was an error in the information.

We'll keep readers posted when the band, festival or venues make official statements.

UPDATE: MARCH 12, 2020, 12:11 A.M. ET

Following the alleged statement surfacing, My Chemical Romance have released an official statement of their own confirming the postponement.

The promoter of our Japan shows suggested that we postpone the shows in Japan for the safety of the public, and we are heeding that advice. We had very much hoped to have alternate dates confirmed before we announced the postponement, to make sure our fans knew we had every intention of coming back. Somehow, word got out before we could do that.

However, please know we are working on rescheduling shows and will try to announce those soon. We are terribly sad to postpone, and even more distressed about what is happening the world over. Take good care and we hope to see you all as soon as possible. Please be good to each other. My Chemical Romance.
