My Chemical Romance haven't played in the UK for nine years, but they've announced they will be returning in June this year.
It was announced that they will be playing at Milton Keynes' Stadium MK on June 20th this year. The band shared their news with fans in a Twitter video entitled 'An Offering'.
Where is Milton Keynes? It's just outside London, and has lots of roundabouts.
This will be the band's first UK show since they headlined Reading and Leeds Festival in 2011. Tickets will go on sale on Ticketmaster this Friday 24th January at 9:30am and you can buy yours here.
There's no presale - and tickets will set you back anything from £45 to £85.

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.
