Lead singer Gerard Way recently appeared on the My Turning Point podcast, where he talked about the band’s shortlived comeback – they played one show in 2019 before the pandemic hit, and the way that his attitude to live gigs has changed over the years: “After the band broke up and I had a lot of time to think and change and grow and all that stuff, I started to have a real issue with control. So I started to kind of examine my own part in that, and think about playing big shows and kind of working a crowd and hyping a crowd up. And we did always try to keep our shows really authentic, almost like you didn’t know what was gonna happen up there night to night, even if we played the same songs. So when it came time to do My Chem again, I had said to myself, ‘OK, I’m not gonna control the audience. I’m not gonna direct them. I’m not really gonna work them. I’m just gonna let them do what they wanna do.’ And so it made that show even more rewarding.”
