Last week, My Chemical Romance (opens in new tab) confirmed they’ll return to the UK later this year for a one-off show.

The band announced the news in a video for instrumental track The Offering, which features hooded figures like those seen on Gerard Way and co.'s Twitter feed at the start of the month. The end of the clip revealed that they’ll play at Stadium MK in Milton Keynes on June 20.

It’ll be the first time My Chemical Romance have played a show in the country since they headlined the Leeds festival in 2011.

The hooded figure appeared on My Chemical Romance's social media channels on January 3 and that was then followed by a short cryptic video showing a series of graphics and symbols (opens in new tab)

Hungry for information about what the new clip might be, fans discovered that some of the symbols used were from the Theban Alphabet – and they pointed to the word “June”.

However, after tickets went on sale on January 24 they quickly sold out, prompting the band to add a second date – June 21. Both dates sold out within an hour. 

Now, the band have added a THIRD (and final) date at Stadium MK – Thursday June 18. Tickets will go on sale this Thursday (January 30) at 9:30am (GMT) and are available from AXS (opens in new tab) Ticketmaster (opens in new tab) and Gigs and Tours (opens in new tab). They will be limited to six tickets per person for standing and four tickets per person for seating – be quick to avoid disappointment!

The band comment: “My Chemical Romance are thrilled to add a 3rd and final show at Stadium MK after their 1st and 2nd nights sold out immediately. We’d love to give fans who missed out last week the opportunity to see this show.

"Tickets will go on sale 9.30 am Thursday 30th January. Please avoid buying from the secondary market for any of these shows as those tickets could be fake.”

My Chemical Romance returned to the stage for the first time in seven years last month, with a 20-song set at the Shrine Exposition Hall in Los Angeles, California.

Their next confirmed show will take place at Download Australia on March 20-21, before they head on to New Zealand on March 25, and then on to Download Japan on March 29.

On Thursday last week, the band uploaded a short video on Twitter with the post carrying an emoji of the US flag, suggesting further show announcements could be imminent.
