We don't know yet if their comeback gig means there will be further shows or new music, but Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda tweeted "Welcome back @MCROfficial."

The reunion was first hinted on the 7th of September when The Get Up Kids mysteriously tweeted that James Dewees was no longer a member. No one realised they keyboarder was getting back together with My Chemical Romance!!

Earlier this year Gerard and the founding guitarist Ray Toro recorded covers of Simon and Garfunkel's "Hazy Shade of Water" and "The Turtle's Happy Together" For Netflix' The Umbrella Academy.
Why did My Chemical Romance break up again?
Gerard Way formed MCR in 2001 and their best known songs are Welcome To The Black Parade and Teenagers. The band was a six-time Kerrang! winning act and released four albums in their time.
They broke up in 2013 when the band made a statement: "We've gotten to go places we never knew we would.
"We've been able to see and experience things we never imagined possible," the 2013 statement said.
"We've shared the stage with people we admire, people we look up to, and best of all our friends. And now, like all great things, it has come time for it to end."
Gerard said MCR took a toll on his mental and personal life after the 2013 break up. He said everyone remained amicable and teased that fans shouldn't count out a reunion. And now it seems he kept true to his word!!!
Anyway, I don't know about you but I've got my kohl eyeliner at the ready.
