My Chemical Romance has postponed their Australian & New Zealand tour due to coronavirus fears, after the World Health Organisation officially declared COVID-19 a pandemic.

The iconic emo band, which only reunited last year, had been scheduled to perform at the Download Music Festival in Sydney and Melbourne, before a show in New Zealand at the end of March.

Download Festival has confirmed that they are working with My Chemical Romance and their team to reschedule the planned tour, and will keep punters updated on when that is all confirmed.

More to come on when this tour will be rescheduled.
