Last month, throughout his massive international tour, My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way debuted new songs like "Cheap Lights," "Kid Nothing," and the now-familiar, "Don't Try." Gerard, known for his admiration for all things Japanese, had a special treat for the island nation during a recent performance in Tokyo: He brought his brother Mikey Way, the longtime My Chemical Romance bassist, to join him on stage. The dynamic duo tackled Gerard's "Don't Try" in what will prove to be a memorable performance. The brothers haven't performed together since the group disbanded almost two years ago.
The news first arrived as an Instagram tease, with Gerard posting a picture of a man cloaked in black, sound checking, with the caption, "Someone showed up for a very special show tonight in Tokyo." The side-profile was enough for some hardcore MCR fans to identify as Mikey, and Gerard later confirmed their suspicions by tweeting a picture of the pair on stage.
Gerard Way also hosted a cute children's television program recently. And while you're at it, why not click through our list of must-read My Chem fan fiction and take our quiz to determine which era of Gerard Way's career identifies you best?
