And what Fabulous poopers they turned out to be. First, My Chemical Romance announced a reunion in another world :fall 2019. The band played a gig in December, but then the world stopped, so the band postponed the reunion tour, which they pushed to 2021. And then the most sacred thing happened, the tour was again delayed due to COVID.
