Serious cash for MCR...

My Chemical Romance‘s first comeback show in Los Angeles last month grossed over a million dollars, newly released figures reveal.

According to the band’s agency Paradigm, the sell-out show grossed $1,451,745 – the highest grossing ever at the Shrine Auditorium & Expo Hall.

It’s also believed that they achieved some of the venue’s highest ever merchandise sales too.

Last week, MCR seemingly teased a UK leg of their reunion tour. While there are no confirmed UK dates yet, the band shared a photograph of a hooded figure wearing a skull mask that was captioned with a Union Jack emoji.

With five more confirmed concerts in March 2020, My Chemical Romance will play two shows each in Australia and Japan with a New Zealand gig in between.

In the build-up to the recent Los Angeles show, My Chemical Romance posted a message on Twitter in which they revealed they first met up to discuss reforming in 2017.

The tweet reads: “In 2017, we got in a room together to see what would happen. A couple more jam sessions and 39 days of rehearsals later, we’re ready to show you what we’ve learned. See you soon.”
