2020 was supposed to be a big year for My Chemical Romance, as the rock/punk/emo band played its first show since 2012 in December 2019 and was preparing for some hugely anticipated reunion tours this year.

None of that is happening, of course, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and on Tuesday MCR officially announced that its planned Fall 2020 tour dates have been pushed back to Fall 2021.

Noting the financial difficulties put in place by the pandemic, My Chemical Romance said in a statement that fans shoudl be able to access refunds on tickets if needed.

As a band, we are deeply aware of the profound problems and crucial issues the world is facing right now. These issues are all life-changing, and we have them in the forefront of our minds on a regular basis. All of our focus should be on making the world better in every way we can.
We would never want to distract from the challenges we are facing right now, but we feel it is the right thing to let people know that we have rescheduled our shows, so that we can offer people a refund on tickets in these difficult financial times.

All tickets will be honored for the new dates. If you are unable to attend, refunds are available at your point of purchase.

All rescheduled tour dates can be found here:

It is a long time away, and there is so much for all of us to do to make the world a better place in the interim. We cannot wait to play for you. Take care of each other and yourselves. We will see you soon.

This is one of the latest tours to be scrapped for the time being because of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has left independent music venues in peril, uncertain if they will be able to survive once the pandemic subsides.

It also follows recent tour postponement/cancellation announcements including the Coachella Valley Music & Arts FestivalNick Cave & the Bad SeedsSmashing PumpkinsKISSToolMotley Crue/Def Leppard/Poison/Joan Jett & the Blackhearts and many more.
