More on My Chemical Romance
Details about the My Chemical Romance reunion have been slowly but steadily trickling in, and Thursday have been confirmed as the openers for their comeback show.
Both bands confirmed the news today that Thursday are performing at their show at the Shrine Dec. 20.
Thursday said via their Instagram page that they never expected to perform again after their 20th anniversary shows but we’re stoked to join MCR.

They say “Man makes plans, God laughs.” When Thursday booked our 20th Anniversary tour last year, we knew that it would likely be our last chance to go out on the road together before life took us our separate ways once again. So we made the most of it, played two shows in every city, and tried to make sure we saw all of our friends at least once more. But one thing that we never could have planned for was the reunion of our closest friends, My Chemical Romance. It was a sincere but welcomed shock when they told us their plans and asked if we wouldn’t join them. Well, we never thought we’d get a chance to say this, ever again, but here it goes: We are honored to announce we will be supporting @mychemicalromance , at the Shrine Auditorium, in Los Angeles, California, on December 20, 2019. See you there.

The band also confirmed earlier today that former MCR drummer Jarrod Alexander will be joining them at that show. Whether or not he’ll be appearing at their 2020 dates as well is still unclear.
