Believe it or not it's been more than nine years since My Chemical Romance played in the UK, but they recently revealed that they are returning to Milton Keynes in June 2020.
The band announced the news in a tweet entitled 'An Offering' where they told fans that they will be playing at Milton Keynes' Stadium MK on June 20th this year.
The last time My Chemical Romance played in the UK was in 2011 when they headlined the Reading and Leeds Festival. Now the wait is over and fans will be able to get their hands on tickets to see the band from 9.30am today and you can buy yours here. The tickets will set you back anything from £45 to £85 but are proving very popular. The Ticketmaster website have activated their queuing system so when you try to find tickets you will see the following message:
Wow! Loads of people have turned up today.
As so many people are trying to book tickets, we've started a queue. Don't refresh this page as you may lose your place in the queue.

Accessible/ Wheelchair tickets will only be available from Stadium Mk by calling the Box Office Disabled Access line on 01908 828740 or in person from Fri 24th January from 9.30am.
My Chemical Romance Tour Dates for 2020 so far:
Tickets for the Milton Keynes gig go on sale at 9.30am on Friday 24th January 2020 on Ticketmaster, buy yours here.
After disbanding back in 2013, what was thought to be a one-off reunion took place at LA's The Shrine in December and now the band have decided to add more dates. So far they will be playing Download Festival in Australia, New Zealand and Japan in March as well as Intex Osaka and The Outer Fields at Western Springs.
There was huge demand for tickets when their initial reunion was announced and the venue was sold out within four minutes, despite being $172 per ticket. It turned out to be the highest grossing gig in The Shrine's history, making nearly $1.5 million.
Fans across social media are hyped about the announcement, but some are already anxious about getting their hands on a ticket for the band's UK return.

Excitement about the show is growing, but after a 7 year hiatus does anybody really know what they can expect when the band take to the stage in June?
Kerrang's Eve Barlow reviewed My Chemical Romance's comeback gig in LA and she described Gerard Way, the band's lead vocalist and co-founder, as "seemingly ageless" and declares the show as the greatest comeback of the decade.
MCR opened their show with hit song I'm Not Okay (I Promise) and ended it with a second encore and a song which spent two weeks at UK number one, Welcome To The Black Parade.
The band rattled off songs spanning all four of their albums, but some fans will be hoping for some new music and they might not have too long to wait after My Chemical Romance revealed on Twitter that they'd regrouped in 2017 and had been working together since.
