The band started their tour at the Paycom Center in Oklahoma City and, for the first time since 2003, played ‘Bury Me In Black’, as well as ‘This Is The Best Day Ever’ for the first time since 2005.
It’s always good to see a once hugely popular band come back and give their fans what they want. Check out some footage from the show below.
The New Jersey-based band played 20 songs throughout the gig, with the setlist spanning across all their albums. Here’s the whole setlist:

The band broke up in 2013, citing mental health, burnout, and struggles with addiction as reasons, but, as NME reported, they haven’t lost their touch, as they received a five-star review from the British website.
“They’re now safely one of the biggest rock groups to emerge in the last 20 years but if the band are worried about their new found status, they don’t show it,” the review reads.
[The show was] fearless, loose, and raw. It genuinely felt like anything could happen, as My Chemical Romance channelled punk, rebellion, and playful ambition.
The band’s reunion tour is coming to New Zealand in 2023, with a show at Western Springs in March set to rock any MCR fans out there.
