Here’s what went down at My Chemical Romance’s first show in seven years

Back in October, when My Chemical Romance announced their reunion, emos and ex-emos all over the globe completely lost their shit. It was, of course, huge news.

Over the weekend, in LA, the band performed their first show in seven years… and from all accounts, it was absolutely glorious.

After a seven-year hiatus, emo legends My Chemical Romance are officially back. Here’s what went down at their long-awaited return show.

The set opened with a few samples from across their iconic discography, before launching right into I’m Not Okay (I Promise). From here, they belted through a huge setlist that covered every hit you could possibly hope for.

“It’s been a long time, Los Angeles. Thank you for being here tonight,” vocalist Gerard Way said to the crowd. “We didn’t know if this was ever gonna happen again, so we really appreciate you showing up.”

If you want to soak in a bit of the performance’s energy, someone filmed the entire set on their phone. Watch the video above.
