My Chemical Romance live at Sophia Gardens 2022

6 Dec 2021 | Events

My Chemical Romance have added a huge Cardiff outdoor show as part of their 2022 UK comeback shows.

The band will play at Sophia Gardens on Saturday 28th May 2022, with tickets available from Ticketmaster on pre-sale from 10 am on Thursday 9th December, and general sale from 10 am on Friday 10th December.

Formed in Newark, New Jersey, My Chemical Romance made their debut in 2002 with the independently released album I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love. 

The band signed to Reprise Records the following year and made their major-label debut with 2004's Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge. The album contained the Platinum hit I'm Not Okay (I Promise), the Gold-certified Helena, and The Ghost of You.

Rolling Stone hailed the three-times Platinum The Black Parade as one of the top albums of 2006. Lead single Welcome to the Black Parade topped both Billboard's Alternative Songs tally and the UK Official Singles chart.

The band toured extensively behind the album - appearing as characters from The Black Parade - and released the live album The Black Parade is Dead! in 2008. 

Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys was released in 2010 and topped Billboard's Alternative Albums and Top Rock Albums charts. It was followed by a series of singles later released as Conventional Weapons in 2013.

Sophia Gardens and Glamorgan Cricket's Head of Commercial, Huw Warren, said: "We are thrilled to welcome a world-famous band in My Chemical Romance to Sophia Gardens next year.

"We are always looking at ways to increase our portfolio of events and this concert will help us to bring new audiences to the venue and build our reputation as one of the leading entertainment destinations in Wales.

"We hope to announce more exciting events to go with our packed cricket schedule in 2022 over the coming weeks."
