Earlier today, Mikey Way and Frank Iero unveiled their reunion show guitars, sparking tour theories with Fender’s caption. Later, Way was spotted in the venue, and now they’ve apparently put those guitars to use.

We revealed our dream setlist, and now fans at the venue are stating at least four songs were played spreading across their discography. And we’ve alredy been G-noted.

My Chemical Romance reportedly played “Helena” from Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge and “Welcome To The Black Parade” off The Black Parade. They also apparently performed “Vampire Money” off Danger Days and “Mastas Of Ravenkroft” off subsequent The Mad Gear And Missile Kid EP.

Other fans reported hearing even more than the four initially reported tracks including “Skylines and Turnstiles” “Make Room” “Thank You For The Venom” “Teenagers” “Na Na Na,”  “S/C/A/R/E/C/R/O/W” and “House Of Wolves.”


Will all of these songs be part of the reunion setlist? Only time will tell. Check out some fan-shot footage of the band’s reported soundcheck performance below.



More on the My Chemical Romance return

Rumors of a My Chemical Romance reunion have run rampant since the emo staples disbanded in 2013. Warped Tour founder Kevin Lyman even revealed he attempted to get the band back together for the tour’s 25th anniversary shows to no avail.

However, one rumor took major traction thanks to Joe Jonas. Yes, the Jonas Brothers member claimed to have heard the band rehearsing.

The brothers appeared on the KISS FM Breakfast Show June 7 to discuss their new album, but during the interview, Joe dished some dirt that is definitely toyed with everyone’s emotions. Joe claims that while they were rehearsing in New York, MCR were apparently there rehearsing right next to them.

“I’ve got some dirt,” Joe begins. “My Chemical Romance apparently were rehearsing next to us in New York recently, which I thought they broke up, so I don’t know.”

With Joe Jonas and Mark Hoppus getting our hopes up, Frank Iero finally addressed the rumor nearly a month later. Iero squashed the speculation in an interview with the Asbury Park Press ahead of the Atlantic City Warped Tour. 

When asked about My Chemical Romance, Iero denied Joe’s report of the shared practice space. While Iero shrugged off that anything was currently in the works, he left the door cracked for a victory lap someday. “I survived a bus accident, so anything is possible,” Iero said.

Then finally, they said it would never happen, and then it did on Halloween. Activity began on a new Instagram account for My Chemical Romance with posts surfacing shortly after fans began speculating Iero’s Oct. 30 Instagram post was about more than the weather.

“it’s reported that it’s going to rain in new jersey tomorrow, washing out all Halloween festivities…” Iero posted. “Guess we’re gonna have to find something else to do.”

At 2 p.m. ET on Oct. 31, the band’s Facebook page changed their profile picture to a black candle, beginning an hour filled with teases and speculation. Read the rest of the return details from Halloween here.
