My Chemical Romance have given an update to their long-awaited reunion tour, which is scheduled to begin in the UK this May and hit North America in the summer and fall. They've cancelled their Russia and Ukraine shows, and they've also added more dates and revealed a STACKED list of openers for the tour, including the newly-reunited Midtown, Thursday, Taking Back Sunday, Turnstile, The Bouncing Souls, Nothing, Soul Glo, Kimya Dawson, The Homeless Gospel Choir, Youth Code, The Lemon Twigs, Surfbort, Devil Master, Dilly Dally, Shannon and the Clams, Waterparks, and more.

Newly-added NYC-area shows include August 27 at UBS Arena in Belmont Park with The Bouncing Souls and Ghosh and September 10 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn with Thursday. Tickets for those shows go on sale Friday (3/11) at noon.

The band's previously announced NY/NJ shows happen on Barclays Center on September 11 with Thursday, September 21 at Prudential Center with Midtown and The Homeless Gospel Choir, and Prudential Center on September 20 with Thursday and The Homeless Gospel Choir.

MCR also added a fifth LA show (with Midtown), and new dates in Nashville, San Antonio, Raleigh, Boston, Portland, Cincinnati, and Oklahoma City. They're also playing a few US festivals, including Riot Fest, When We Were Young, Firefly, and Aftershock. Updated dates with openers by listed by date below. Taking Back Sunday aren't listed on any dates, but a handful have a TBA opener, so maybe that will be TBS after their tour with Third Eye Blind ends?

In related news, Gerard Way sings on the new black metal album by Trivium's Matt Heafy and Emperor's Ihsahn. Get it on limited white vinyl. You can also pick up a vinyl copy of The Black Parade and a Black Parade tee here.
