My Chemical Romance kicked off their hugely anticipated UK and Ireland comeback tour on Monday night (May 16) at the Eden Project in Cornwall, marking their first UK show in 11 years.
In a five-star review of the show, NME‘s Ali Shutler said: “They’re now safely one of the biggest rock groups to emerge in the last 20 years but if the band are worried about their new found status, they don’t show it.
“Tonight’s show is fearless, loose and raw. It genuinely feels like anything could happen, as My Chemical Romance channel punk rebellion and playful ambition. ‘This has been special and amazing,’ says Way, taking the words right out of our mouths.”
Following the UK dates, My Chemical Romance will move onto Europe, before visiting New Zealand and Australia in 2023.
