We regret to announce that My Chemical Romance will be postponing their Auckland tour date.

Please see the below statement from the band:

To our dearest friends –

 It is with heavy hearts that we have decided to postpone our performances in Australia and New Zealand. We felt this was the right decision for our fans, our band, our crew, and our families given the current global situation.  We apologize to our fans, but please know that we didn’t come to this decision lightly. Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to being with you all again as soon as we can.  In the meantime, please be good to each other.  My Chemical Romance

Currently, we are working on rescheduling the date for Auckland. Purchased tickets for the original date will be valid for the rescheduled dates. For those customers who wish to receive a refund, the refund process details will be announced once the rescheduled date has been announced.

The used cup will be washed/dried by us and returned to circulation. At the end of your evening, you can either (a) take your cup home as a souvenir, or (b) return it to the ‘Globelet Refund’ tent for a $1 refund, or (c) donate your cup return to our charity of choice, ‘Music Helps’ and we will give the $1 refund to them.  

Partnering with Globelet allows us all to reuse recyclables and not waste single serve disposables.
