My Chemical Romance NZ - Reunion Tour 2023
It’s been nearly a decade since My Chemical Romance rocked the stage and 11 years since their last performance in New Zealand at the Big day out 2012. But finally, the ‘My Chemical Romance reunion tour’ that has taken the world by storm is heading to Auckland this March.
The band broke up in 2013, and the group members went on solo projects. That is until 2019 when they surprised fans by announcing a reunion show in Los Angeles. The “MCRmy” and regular fans alike were in disbelief, and tickets to the show sold out in 4 minutes!
The reunion tour is the band’s biggest-ever tour since its inception over 20 years ago, and it has already been a massive hit with fans overseas. The tour generated $20 Million (USD) in sales on its first stop-over in Europe, and Billboards estimate that by the time it is all said and done, the tour will bring in over $60 Million (USD).
The band’s long-serving agent Matt Galle spoke about the significance of this particular reunion tour, saying, “You never knew if it was going to happen again or not.” And upon the conclusion of their first show, he spoke about how “It was very emotional to see them back,”. We are sure this a sentiment that many MCR fans will also attest to; even American female rapper Cardi B showed surprising love for my chemical romance at the outset of the tour, tweeting, “they don’t make music like this anymore,” and posting a clip of the bands hit single “I’m not okay (I promise)”.
The My Chemical Romance NZ concert is already behind by 2 years. Fortunately, with our 1-3 day nationwide delivery service, you won't have to wait as long to get your concert gear in time.

More on My Chemical Romance:
My Chemical Romance was formed in 2001 in their native state of New Jersey. In 2022 they debuted with their first album, “I brought you my bullets, you brought me your love”, but the album that kicked things off for the band was undoubtedly, “My black parade” (2006) which featured the hit single “Welcome to the black parade” which hit #1 in the UK charts.
Why did they breakup in the first place?
After a stellar 12 years together, My Chemical Romance broke up in 2013, which shocked many fans at the time. The band’s lead singer, Gerard Way, speaking on the way it all ended, said, “It wasn’t fun to make stuff anymore. I think breaking up the band broke us out of that machine.” He also spoke about the pressure to succeed continually, the endless opinions of “how MCR should be”, and the haunting question of “is it ever going to be good enough?” all contributing to MCR disbanding.
What does MCRmy mean, and who are they?
MCRmy, or ‘My Chemical Romance army”, is the dedicated fanbase of My Chemical Romance. MCRmy members are known to support each other online through various social media channels, attend concerts together, hold events and advocate for the band wherever and whenever they can. Local MCRmy social media groups (with a significant following) are established in North America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and South America.
What happened to the MCR NZ tour of 2020?
MCR was previously scheduled to come to New Zealand in 2020 as part of their reunion tour. However, the tour and subsequent show was cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the various international lockdowns which followed. Ironically, the day the show was supposed to be held was also the first day of New Zealand’s nationwide lockdown to combat the spread of the virus.
Fingers crossed for the My Chemical Romance NZ 2023 concert! 🤞
