My Chemical Romance Postpone Tour Dates Due to Coronavirus [Updated]

on March 12, 2020, 7:19pm

My Chemical Romance’s upcoming reunion tour is being impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. The emo rock band has postponed a pair of concerts scheduled in Japan for later this month. Update: MCR are also pulling the plug on their upcoming shows in Australia and New Zealand.

“The promoter of our Japan shows suggested that we postpone the shows in Japan for the safety of the public, and we are heeding that advice,” MCR wrote in a statement. “We had very much hoped to have alternate dates confirmed before we announced the postponement, to make sure our fans knew we had every intention of coming back. Somehow, word got out before we could do that.”

“Pease know we are working on rescheduling shows and will try to announce those soon. We are terribly sad to postpone, and even more distressed about what is happening the world over.”

Addressing their decision to postpone shows in Australia and New Zealand, MCR said, “We felt this was the right decision for our fans, our band, our crew, and our families given the current global situation.” The impacted dates include Australia’s Download Festival.

As of now, the rest of MCR’s reunion tour will take place as scheduled, beginning in June in the UK. Tickets for all of MCR’s upcoming dates, including their fall leg of North America, can be purchased here.
