My Chemical Romance Postpones Japan Shows Due to Coronavirus

My Chemical Romance has decided to postpone their Japan reunion shows due to rising concerns about the coronavirus. The shows were scheduled for later this month.

“The promoter of our Japan shows suggested that we postpone the shows in Japan for the safety of the public, and we are heeding that advice,” the band wrote in a statement. “We had very much hoped to have alternate dates confirmed before we announced the postponement, to make sure our fans knew we had every intention of coming back. Somehow, word got out before we could do that.”

“Please know we are working on rescheduling shows and will try to announce those soon. We are terribly sad to postpone, and even more distressed about what is happening the world over.”

The rest of their reunion tour will go on as planned for the time being. My Chemical Romance will launch the tour with shows in New Zealand and Australia. In September, they’ll kick off the North American leg of the tour. Check out all of their dates here.
