My Chemical Romance Postpones Japan Tour Dates Due To Coronavirus
My Chemical Romance postponed their upcoming tour dates in Japan over concerns from the coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak. The band’s reunion tour was supposed to make stops in Osaka on March 28 and at Download Festival Japan on March 29.
New My Chemical Romance Japan tour dates have not been announced. A message from the band indicated they hoped to have had rescheduled shows in place before postponing but word of the cancelations had begun to leak. My Chemical Romance’s first performance since 2012 occurred last December. The band’s next show is planned for March 20 in Australia. Read the message regarding the Japan tour dates below:
The promoter of our Japan shows suggested that we postpone the shows in Japan for the safety of the public, and we are heeding that advice. We had very much hoped to have alternate dates confirmed before we announced the postponement, to make sure our fans knew we had every intention of coming back. Somehow, word got out before we could do that. However, please know we are working on rescheduling shows and will try to announce those soon. We are terribly sad to postpone, and even more distressed about what is happening the world over. Take good care and we hope to see you all as soon as possible. Please be good to each other.
