Update from Download Festival Australia

On Friday, we announced that Download Festival was not proceeding, citing My Chemical Romance’s decision not to travel at this time.

 

In light of the recent announcement by the Prime Minister, it’s now clear that Download Festival and other associated tour dates wouldn’t have been able to proceed in any case.

 

We would like to sincerely thank My Chemical Romance’s foresight in this respect.

 

We are working hard with many of the bands that were scheduled to play Download Festival, including My Chemical Romance, to ensure that they eventually do visit Australia & New Zealand - when the current situation has improved.
