My Chemical Romance postpone Milton Keynes gigs until 2022
The band will now bring their reunion tour to Stadium MK in May next year.
US alt-rock giants My Chemical Romance have rescheduled their three sold-out gigs at Stadium MK for a second time.
The band were originally due to headline the Milton Keynes venue in June 2020, before the dates were moved to June this year because of the impact of the coronavirus.
However, in a statement published by the band tonight (Friday, May 16), they confirmed the shows, and the rest of their reunion tour, has been moved to 2022.
The statement said: “We are deeply sad, but those emotions are only a fraction of the depth of feeling we have all experienced watching the suffering and loss of the past year.
“We just want to be as sure as we can be that everyone is safe.
“Refunds will be offered to anyone who wants them.
“We are sorry if this is disappointing and we really can’t wait to see you in 2022.”
My Chemical Romance will now play Stadium MK on May 19, 21 and 22.
Tickets will be moved to the respective first, middle or last gig according to the original booking.
After disbanding in 2013, My Chemical Romance reformed in 2019 for a comeback show in Los Angeles.
Comprising of singer Gerard Way, guitarists Ray Toro and Frank Lero and bassist Mikey Way, the band broke through with their 2004 album Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge with 2006 successor The Black Parade cementing their place as one of rock’s biggest bands.
Their last studio album before their split, Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys, was released in 2010.
The last time the band played in the UK was at the Reading and Leeds festivals in 2011.
