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.
