My Chemical Romance air more fan favourites as UK tour hits Milton Keynes
My Chemical Romance played Milton Keynes last night (May 19), as their hugely anticipated UK and Ireland comeback tour continues.
The third date of the reformed band’s current run, and their first of four shows in Milton Keynes saw a 21-song setlist that opened with their new single ‘The Foundations Of Decay’.
As well as a mix of hits, fan favourites and deep cuts, the band played two songs for the first time on the tour. You can see fan footage below.
Their performance of ‘It’s Not a Fashion Statement, It’s a Fucking Deathwish’ from 2004’s ‘Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge’ was the song’s first live airing since 2007.

My Chemical Romance kicked off their run of live dates on Monday night (May 16) at the Eden Project in Cornwall, marking their first UK show in 11 years.
In a five-star review, NME said: They’re now safely one of the biggest rock groups to emerge in the last 20 years but if the band are worried about their new found status, they don’t show it. Tonight’s show is fearless, loose and raw. It genuinely feels like anything could happen, as My Chemical Romance channel punk rebellion and playful ambition. “This has been special and amazing,” says Way, taking the words right out of our mouths.
