The rumours that have been circling for years have finally proven true: My Chemical Romance will reunite – for one show, at least, on Dec 20 at the Shrine Expo Hall in Los Angeles.

The reunion gig will be the emo rock band’s first performance since 2012, with tickets going on sale Friday (Nov 1).

Will there be more to follow? Seems a safe bet, but news of the one gig is all the band is giving up for now.

Speculation of a reunion gained traction in 2016 when the band's social media accounts were, once again, active for the 10th year anniversary of their third and most critically acclaimed album, The Black Parade. 

That rumour grew significantly earlier this year, when Joe Jonas claimed My Chemical Romance had been rehearsing in the studio next door to the Jonas Brothers, which guitarist Frank Iero later denied.

The real push began with new profile pictures on My Chemical Romance's Facebook and Twitter accounts. 

Then earlier today they put out their very first Instagram post with the caption "Like Phantoms Forever...," a nod to their first EP, alongside a graphic with the show announcement.

My Chemical Romance released their last album, Danger Days: The True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys in 2010. 

They've kept fairly busy on their own since the official split in 2013. Guitarist Frank Iero has had a steady solo career, most recently as Frank Iero and the Future Violents, with the album Barriers released in May of this year. 

Frontman Gerard Way also released a solo album, 2014's Hesitant Alien, and a successful graphic novel series, The Umbrella Academy, which was adapted as a Netflix original series. 

Way also recently released a few solo tracks featuring My Chemical Romance lead guitarist Ray Toro.
