MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE played its first concert in seven years on December 20 in Los Angeles.
Guitarist Frank Iero, vocalist Gerard Way, bassist Mikey Way and guitarist Ray Toro took to the stage at the 6,500-capacity Shrine Expo Hall with Jarrod Alexander on drums and kicked off the show with "I'm Not Okay (I Promise)".
MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE broke up in 2013, three years after the release of its fourth studio album, "Danger Days: The True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys". Since then, Gerard Way released his debut solo album, 2014's "Hesitant Alien", and several standalone singles. He also saw his award-winning comic book "The Umbrella Academy" adapted into a Netflix series. In November, it was revealed that Way would be scoring Kevin Smith's upcoming "Clerks" sequel.
Way's bandmates also pursued various solo projects. Iero released a pair of solo albums, and Mikey Way formed a group called ELECTRIC CENTURY. Toro briefly toured with a project called REGGIE AND THE FULL EFFECT, and released a solo recording in tribute to a transgender teen who committed suicide.
Reunion rumors first arose in 2016, when the group posted a cryptic video on social media. It turned out to be for a 10th anniversary reissue of the band's 2006 album "The Black Parade". The band stated at the time, "We are not touring and there is no reunion planned."
