My Chemical Romance Postpone Reunion Tour To 2022
My Chemical Romance were supposed to launch their reunion tour in 2020, but those dates were pushed back to this year due to COVID-19. Today they announced that they’re postponing their grand return a second time. Their announcement was sufficiently emo in tone: “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,” reads a news item on the band’s website. “We just want to be as sure as we can be that everyone is safe.”
MCR were supposed to headline Riot Fest this September, but the band will now headline the 2022 edition of the fest. There will still be a Riot Fest in 2021, though; the festival announced today that it will reveal a final wave of headliners and performers in May.

My Chemical Romance is postponing our 2021 touring plans until 2022.
