Singer Gerard Way is planning a few surprises

My Chemical Romance are planning a spectacular comeback when they kick off their ‘Black Parade’ UK tour next year.

Despite keeping their current UK shows fairly low key, singer Gerard Way has promised fans a theatrical extravaganza for their spring 2007 dates.

He told NME.COM: “We’re a very theatrical band and we didn’t show up with a lot of production on this tour because we wanted to keep it scaled down to do the show next year and really bring ‘The Black Parade’. We were concerned about that, and the crowd made us realise that what’s special about us isn’t that stuff.

‘The Black Parade’ has got to be something much much bigger. We’re trying to really bring the record to life in a live setting which isn’t something we can do right now. These shows are really saying hello, hey it’s cool, we’re back, thanks for supporting us, we’re gonna play a lot of new songs for you guys.”

The full tour dates are:

Plymouth Pavillions (March 20)

Brighton Centre (21)

Birmingham NIA Academy (22)

Manchester MEN (24)

Cardiff CIA (25)

Nottingham Arena (26)

Glasgow SECC (27)

London Wembley Arena (29)
