We couldn’t be more excited. Gerard Way will play his first ever solo shows at this year’s Reading and Leeds Festivals.
Since the demise of My Chem in March 2013, Gerard has been working on his solo effort, and recently launched gerardway.com, and confirmation that he has signed to Warner Bros Records, with a debut album on the way soon.
The former My Chemical Romance frontman will appear on the NME/Radio 1 Stage.
Long time fans of Gerard Way’s music will know that his idea to debut in the UK comes as no surprise, as My Chemical Romance often came over to our shores to tour an album first, as they did in their infamous comeback shows in 2010 at Manchester & Hammersmith Apollos ahead of Danger Days.
We can only hope G will surprise us and announce a one-off intimate London show around the festival dates…
