It is with heavy hearts that we have decided to postpone our performances in Australia and New Zealand. We felt this was the right decision for our fans, our band, our crew, and our families given the current global situation. We apologise to our fans, but please know that we didn't come to this decision lightly. Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to being with you all again as soon as we can. In the meantime, please be good to each other." - My Chemical Romance

Calling all "MCR-mys"! Prepare to don your favourite goth outfit because emo-punk royalties My Chemical Romance will be making their long-awaited return this March 2020. On the back of their latest reunion tour, the group have locked-in a one-off NZ show happening at Auckland's Western Springs Stadium.

Formed in Newark, NJ, My Chemical Romance made their debut in 2002 with the independently released album 'I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love'. The following year, they signed to Reprise Records and made their major label debut with 2004's 'Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge' (now 3x certified Platinum). The album contained the Platinum hit 'I'm Not Okay (I Promise)', the Gold-certified 'Helena', and 'The Ghost of You'.

In 2006, Rolling Stone hailed the 3x Platinum 'The Black Parade' as one of the top albums of the year. Lead single 'Welcome to the Black Parade' topped both Billboard's Alternative Songs tally and the UK Official Singles chart and is now 3x Platinum. The band have toured extensively behind the album—appearing as characters from The Black Parade—and released the live album 'The Black Parade is Dead!' in 2008. 'Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys' was released in 2010 and topped Billboard's Alternative Albums and Top Rock Albums charts. It was followed by a series of singles later released as 'Conventional Weapons' in 2013.

Joining them as support acts are rock artists Jimmy Eat World, Midnight Youth and Miss June. With MCR and these three, you have an imposing rock lineup that will surely slay the stage.

Since 1992, Arizona-based alt-rock band Jimmy Eat World have been selling out venues, headlining festivals and scoring top ten albums! Their 2001 breakthrough 'Bleed American'—that spawned hit singles 'The Middle', 'Hear You Me', 'Bleed American' and 'Sweetness'—has proved to be a timeless release that continues to gain new generations of teenage punks. They come to Auckland in the wake of the release of their tenth studio LP 'Surviving' (Oct 2019), giving New Zealand fans their first taste of the new tracks live.

Rock aficionados Midnight Youth, on the other hand, were formed in 2006. They went on to become one of the biggest bands in New Zealand. With a cachet of hit singles, major selling albums and awards, Midnight Youth are reuniting to perform their first live show in seven years. Their debut album 'The Brave Don't Run' debuted at Number 2 on the NZ Album Charts in 2009 and sold Platinum status. In the same year, with six nominations, the band took out Best Rock Album and Best Group at the NZ Music Awards.

Combining elements of post-punk, no-wave and rock are alt-rock troupe Miss June. The group hold close their DIY roots while creating a blistering, reckless sound full of melodic hooks and overdriven riffs that are at once immediately recognisable and yet entirely their own. "I want you to understand how important, how exciting and how rock and roll Miss June are," states BBC Radio One Presenter, Jack Saunders.

Known for selling out stadiums across the globe and providing the soundtrack of a generation, My Chemical Romance are a formidable act you wouldn't want to miss!
