My Chemical Romance shocked the music world on Halloween by announcing their reunion for a show in Los Angeles next month. Now the next step is dust off the outfits from The Black Parade and rehearse for their first set in over seven years.
This weekend, the band shared a black and white photo of all four members, sitting in a rehearsal space. It’s potentially the first time the band has been all in one place since breaking up, although there have been reports that this has been in the works for a few months.
Since the initial announcement of the show on December 20 in Los Angeles, the band has gone on to reveal three more upcoming performances, happening in March at festivals across Australia and New Zealand.

Also a part of the show next month will be Thursday, who are currently celebrating their own 20th anniversary. “One thing that we never could have planned for was the reunion of our closest friends, My Chemical Romance,” the band wrote on Instagram. “It was a sincere but welcomed shock when they told us their plans and asked if we would join them.”
My Chemical Romance last took the stage in 2012 at The Bamboozle music festival, and announced their breakup in March of 2013.
