MCR played their first show in seven years on December 20th of 2019. The “Black Parade” rockers' sold-out Los Angeles’ Shrine Auditorium & Expo Hall, grossing $1.5 millon in ticket sales. The largest ticketed show in the history of the Shrine.
On Instagram, MCR’s guitarist, Frank Iero is remembering the one-year anniversary of the last show he played before the pandemic with a new tattoo. Iero shared an image of the new ink that reads, “California 2019.” In his heartfelt post he writes, “1 year ago today was the last 'show' I played in front of a live audience, and the first show mychem had played in a little over 7 years. throughout 2020 I have been incredibly fortunate to be able to play a few live streams and collaborate remotely with some ridiculously talented individuals... but as much fun as that has been, I really can’t wait for it to be safe enough to be able to play real shows again. take care of one another. wear a mask, stay safe, and keep the faith. Xofrnk”
Mikey Way, MCR’s bassist also shared a look back on the 2019 show, sharing an image of his kids sitting in the empty auditorium. He writes, “Thinking back to a magical night three hundred and sixty five days ago. Dreaming of the moment when we can do it all again. Until then – Stay safe out there.”

The rest of My Chem's reunion tour dates that were set to take place in 2020 were postponed due to the health and safety issues that coronavirus has been challenging us with since March.
As the band and their loyal fans await the return of the tour Mikey said to fans in May, “I feel like people are waiting with bated breath. It’s a light at the end of the tunnel and I think there’s something really cool about that.”
Is it corny to say “we’ll carry on” until the tour returns?
