My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way surprised and delighted fans at a recent show by performing his band's set in a cheerleader's outfit.

The concert, held in Nashville, Tennessee on August 23, saw the vocalist sport a green and white dress with the letter 'W' emblazoned on the front, presumably standing for his surname Way.

On their ongoing North American tour, which kicked off on August 20, Way and co. have been adding in further surprises with the addition of live rarities and deep cuts, such as Bury Me In Black, which was performed for the first time in 19 years at the tour's opening show. The emo kingpins then went on to play This Is The Best Day Ever for the first time since 2005.

My Chemical Romance commenced their reunion run this year with a performance at the Eden Project in Cornwall, before heading off across the rest of the UK and continuing on to Europe.

The band will be hitting New Zealand and Australia in 2023 following the end of their US tour this October.
