My Chemical Romance fans across the UK have today been trying to get tickets for the band’s summer UK shows in Milton Keynes.
After weeks of teasing that they would perform a huge headline show in the UK earlier this month, the emo heroes announced the huge headline show at Milton Keynes’ Stadium MK in a new clip, titled ‘An Offering’.
After the first show sold out just minutes after going on sale at 9:30am, a second show was announced on June 21.
You can see the announcement and some of the reactions from fans who managed to get tickets below.

However, many other fans complained of high ticket prices and long queues:
Tried for an hour on three devices.. Nowt. After an hour all 3 responded no tickets try again.
Then a second concert came up Sunday. That was immediately sold out. Resales going offered within the our. The System is shit
When you lose!! ?

@MCRofficial @gerardway @mikeyway @FrankIero @raytoro Can we get another London date or somewhere close, didn't get tickets even though I waited over 2 hours. Now ppl are selling them for x2 or x3 the original price, even seen some tickets going for £1000, also welcome back ?

This is an absolute fiasco. 3.5 hours trying to book @MCRofficial accessible tickets. Just got through after an hour on hold in the queue – to another recorded message for a VOICEMAIL system to leave a message! What the hell @stadium_mk!?!? NOT a very accessible service! #MCRMK

Really upset!! Was in a queue for half hour after all the tickets sold out for the first night and completely missed the second night! And now tickets are going for £200+!! It’s ridiculous

The band kicked off their much anticipated reunion tour at Shrine Expo Hall in Los Angeles last month, which was their first gig since 2012. They announced the comeback show in October 2019 and tickets sold out in minutes when they went on sale in November.
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.
Earlier this month, they also resurrected their famed MCR blog – which traditionally sees frontman Gerard Way communicating with fans in a selection of lengthy posts.
