My Chemical Romance 2020 UK Show Confirmed
After teasing the comeback on social media for the past few months, the announcement came in the form of a video on social media, which announced the news in true emo style.
A shadowy, hooded figure can be seen making its way through woodlands, leading to a final screen that shows the band will take over the city's Stadium MK on 20 June 2020.
The clip was posted with the title: "An Offering..."
Speculation around UK shows began back at the start of January, when the band put up a photo of the same guy we see walking through the woods, with a Union Jack emoji as the caption.
MCR had just announced a few festival slots around the world, having made their much-awaited return last month with a huge reunion show in LA. Tickets sold out in minutes, so the band obviously realised they were on to a winner.
They played their first gig since 2012 back in December, kicking off their reunion tour at Shrine Expo Hall in Los Angeles.

Die-hard fans camped out well in advance of the gig at the 6,300 capacity venue, with countless more watching via a live stream.
The band announced their reunion on Halloween - because, emo - with tickets selling out in four minutes, and it seems the gig lived up to the hype judging by the emotional responses on social media, as well as a load of more than positive write ups of the show.

Reviewing the gig for Kerrang!, Eve Barlow said: "A band built from the ashes of 9/11 to make sense of a broken America have now re-emerged to take on the infinite s***shows of our micro and macro lives. It's not only about this community, it's about rewriting their moment in time.
"To be MCR is to defy every label, type and mould. To be MCR is to keep on playing even when the world is trying to hold you down. To be MCR is to muster the decade's greatest comeback just as time was about to leave you behind. We are okay again."
Not only that, but the band have modernised and launched their first ever Instagram page.
Before they split, the band released four albums together, with the 15th anniversary of their debut causing fans to start to question the likelihood of more material or live shows.
No ticket details have been released just yet, but get 20 June marked off in your diary for what will be a historic gig.
