My Chemical Romance announced their first US tour in nine years on Wednesday with the Easter egg-packed “A summoning…” video.

Before returning to the stage Dec. 20, My Chemical Romance played what would become their last show at Bamboozle 2012 in their home state of New Jersey.

Tickets for the North American tour went on sale today at 12 PM local time in each city.

Quick sell-outs led to the band adding a second show in Newark, New Jersey as well as two additional dates in Los Angeles, California.

Guitarist Frank Iero posted about tickets going on sale for their tour, but also spoke about what the tour means to him.

hell-oh phrends, Tomorrow tickets will go on sale for the first North American My Chem tour in 9 years at 12pm local time… 18 dates in some of my favorite cities, including (yea, you guessed it) beautiful Newark, NJ. ? The first and only time mychem played the Prudential Center in Newark was in 2007 when we were asked by the mighty @bonjovi (?) to open their series of shows christening the venue. it was the first concert ever held there, and since we opened the show… well, technically we were the first band to ever play there (thanks Jon! ?‍♀️ sorry). Now it’s 2020, 13 years later and my friends and i are back to headline the Rock, our hometown arena located less than 7 miles from the house i grew up in, and the current stomping ground of the @njdevils ? it really is a dream come true, i couldn’t make this shit up if i tried! i truly feel blessed getting to do all the crazy things that i do… and i just want to thank you all out there for the love, for the continued support, and for your (extremely loud) patience. It was a long journey getting to these shows, for all of us… and i wouldn’t trade one step or stumble of it for the world. ticket link is in my bio, i’ll see you at the shows. Keep the faith xofrnk ?

Now, all of the shows are completely sold out.

The band have shared a statement about selling the tour out which you can read below.

“My Chemical Romance would like to thank their Killjoys across North America for selling out 228,600 tickets in under six hours. Fans from the U.S. and Canada acted quickly, as tickets went on sale today at 12 PM local time and were gone long before the day’s end….”you’ve worn out all your dance shoes, this time.””

Iero has also shared a message of his own regarding the tour selling out which you can see below.

The quick sell-out isn’t entirely surprising given the hype around the reunion since their first show back was announced. They also swiftly sold out three shows in the UK with a run of other European shows as well as New Zealand, Australia and Japan scheduled right now.

The band’s first show back ended up selling out even quicker than the tour. Fans trying to get into the first reunion show faced tickets selling out in at most three to four minutes.

A lot of fans were unable to get tickets due to various issues with Ticketmaster leading to resale tickets climbing by hundreds of dollars.

Update: JAN. 31, 2020, 9:05 P.M. ET

My Chemical Romance have added a fourth and final Los Angeles show on October 16 with tickets going on sale February 1 at 12 PM PST.
