More My Chemical Romance
My Chemical Romance returning to the stage this evening marks the first time since breaking up March 22, 2013. After releasing their last album, Danger Days: The True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys, Nov. 22, 2010, MCR played what would be their final show May 19, 2012 at Bamboozle in their home state of New Jersey.
The band weren’t originally scheduled to play Bamboozle, taking over for blink-182 10 days out after they canceled their festival slot and North American tour. Drummer Travis Barker had to undergo an emergency tonsillectomy, and MCR stepped in to fill the spot, performing before Foo Fighters on the main stage.
The band played alongside other acts such as A$AP Rocky, Emmure, the All-American Rejects, DJ Pauly D, Iggy Azalea, the Maine, Never Shout Never, Jimmy Eat World, Motion City Soundtrack, Anti-Flag and more.
Check out a clip of them playing “Welcome To The Black Parade” at that show below.
According to setlist.fm, the band closed out that final set with “Helena,” which you can see below thanks to fan-shot footage.
Following tonight’s big return, the band will head to Australia, New Zealand and Japan in 2020. Check out the full list of dates below with tickets here.
