The reunited My Chemical Romance’s two shows at the Prudential Center in Newark, originally planned for September 2020 but then postponed to September of this year because of the pandemic, have been postponed again. They will now take place on Sept. 20-21, 2022; tickets to the original shows will be honored.
“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,” the band said, in a statement on its website, mychemicalromance.com. “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.”
Other rescheduled dates include the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, Sept. 11, 2022; and the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Aug. 29, 2022.
My Chemical Romance was the first band ever to perform at the Prudential Center, opening for Bon Jovi in October 2007. The band went on hiatus in 2013, with individual members pursuing a variety of solo projects.
Their last studio album was Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys in 2010, though they also released a deluxe 10th anniversary edition of The Black Parade in 2016.
Their first reunion show took place Dec. 20, 2019 in Los Angeles.
