Though we all knew it was coming, it doesn’t make it any easier to hear it. My Chemical Romance’s highly anticipated Return tour, which was originally slated to take place in 2020 and was subsequently moved to 2021 as a result of COVID-19, has once again been pushed forward yet another year.
The band shared the message across their website and social media platforms today, which reads:
“My Chemical Romance is postponing our 2021 touring plans until 2022. 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.
All tickets will be honored for the new dates. If you are unable to attend, refunds are available at your point of purchase. Rescheduled tour dates can be found at https://www.mychemicalromance.com/tour
Some refunds are available for a limited window. All New Zealand refund request must be submitted by May 20, 2021. The North American refund window ends May 16th, 2021.

Despite this saddening news, those with tickets can rest assured that there won’t be another mad scramble to purchase them, because they’ll once again be honored for the new dates. Refunds will also be available to those that would prefer that option. And most importantly is the news that the tour is still happening, rather than being cancelled all together.
So for now, we’ll carry on.
