My Chemical Romance are baaaack!
Gerard Way, Mikey Way, Frank Iero and Ray Toro are finally (!) back out on tour as My Chemical Romance, and this is your one stop for the My Chemical Romance UK tour photos, setlist, review, merch, fan interviews and more!
The very first show of the tour - and the band's return to the UK - was at the Eden Project in Cornwall on Monday, May 16.
We headed down early to tick off a few important bits and pieces before Gerard, Mikey, Frank and Ray hit the stage for the first time since 2019.
First, there was the small matter of brand new MCR merch...
...yeah, this one too.
And then we chatted to fans - thousands of people who've been waiting so, so long for MCR's return - about what this truly special band means to them.
“They mean a lot to me. They've been with me for a really long time now"
"I've waited 12 years for this show..."
"They gave me hope..."
Oh, and the setlist for the MCR UK tour, night one was:
