My Chemical Romance made their return to the UK last night to kick off their reunion tour, debuting new music and rarities at their first show here in 11 years – see footage, setlist and more below.

The band, who disbanded in 2013 and released their “eulogy” final song ‘Fake Your Death’ the following year, have been gearing up for a reunion tour from this spring after getting back together in December 2019 to play their first show in seven years at the Shrine Auditorium & Expo Hall in Los Angeles.

Last night (May 16) at the Eden Project in St. Austell, Cornwall, My Chemical Romance finally kicked off their reunion tour, which will take them throughout 2022 and beyond.

The show kicked off with the live debut of the band’s new song ‘The Foundations Of Decay’, their first new material in eight years which landed last week.

From there, they played their biggest hits including ‘Helena’, ‘Na Na Na (Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na)’, ‘Teenagers’, ‘Welcome To The Black Parade’ and more.

Fans are also pointing out a new series of merchandise on sale at the show, which are emblazoned with the word ‘swarm’. From fans’ reactions, it appears that many believe the band have a reunion on the way with ‘Swarm’ as its title.
