The Frontier Touring Company is ecstatic to confirm the return of My Chemical Romance, undoubtedly one of the world’s biggest rock bands, to Australia and New Zealand this November/December. Returning to headline their biggest shows to date, My Chemical Romance will take over arena stages in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide, and in New Zealand the band will headline for the first time ever in Auckland.

2005 saw My Chemical Romance’s first ever Australian tour as part of Green Day’s American Idiot Stadium Tour. They secured a legion of Australian fans, and since then the band has hit their Renaissance. 2006’s release of The Black Parade (Warner Music) saw My Chemical Romance ascend to a new level. The band was named Best International Band at the 2007 NME Awards. NME also awarded the album high accolades, raving: “This is one to file alongside 'American Idiot', 'Doolittle' and 'Nevermind' on your greatest US rock albums shelf.”

Alternative Press declared The Black Parade as “…MCR's whole raison d'etre rolled up into one mega-decibel calling card.” This praise translated Down Under where The Black Parade has been their most successful release to date. The album debuted at #3 on the Australian ARIA Album Chart and has since been certified platinum. These successes have been surpassed in New Zealand where the album debuted at #1 on the RIANZ album chart.

Kerrang! readers voted My Chemical Romance as the best live band of 2006, which is a sentiment reiterated by all after witnessing the band on stage. My Chemical Romance made a triumphant return Down Under earlier this year as one of the Big Day Out’s headline acts. They were undeniably one of the punters’ favourites on the tour. A Blunt Magazine review of a performance announced them as undoubtedly being “…one of the greatest live bands in the world.”

2007’s return of My Chemical Romance promises to be one of the biggest arena spectaculars for the year. Drowned In Sound could barely contain their excitement over a recent performance, gushing: “By the fourth song, we’ve already been hit with flame throwers, industrial-sized sparklers, a revolving drumkit, a rainstorm of black and white confetti and a light show that would make even the most stable of us slightly epileptic.”

My Chemical Romance have a history of selling out shows, and the trend will only continue on their most spectacular tour to date. Don’t miss your chance to see one of rock’s finest bands this year! Tickets are on sale Friday 20 July.
