My Chemical Romance sent fans into a frenzy yesterday with their latest teaser. While a potential nod to the Demolition Lovers was pretty cool, the MCRmy were more concerned with the sigils that appeared to be revealing cities for a U.S. tour. Add in a second and even more cryptic MCRXX teaser hours later, and fans are more than ready.
The band released the full “A Summoning…” video just moments ago, and now fans can take solace in knowing they were right. My Chemical Romance have officially announced their first U.S. tour in nine years in the video.
While there’s still hope of new music, the band released their last album, Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys, in November 2010. They embarked on the first run supporting it, the World Contamination tour, beginning in October 2010 through July 2011 hitting North America, Europe and Japan.
Immediately following that run, MCR hit the Honda Civic tour to co-headline with blink-182. With Manchester Orchestra, Matt & Kim and more as support, the tour ran through the U.S. and Canada from August through October 2011. The band played some one-offs in 2012, including that last-minute Bamboozle set, before disbanding in 2013.
When announcing their only U.S. reunion show in Los Angeles for December, several sources confirmed with AltPress that a tour would happen in the U.S. Two weeks ago, the band fueled hopes with the Dangers Days teaser by captioning it with an American flag. Rumors then began flying on Reddit that a tour would be announced today according to an anonymous Live Nation source. Leaked dates for both Houston and Dallas surfaced shortly after, and now they’ve both been confirmed.
Now, the only question that remains is who will open the comeback tour of the decade? Check out the announcement below.
