According to an article on lifeboxset, My Chemical Romance are set to play México's One Music & Arts Festival on November 10, 2012.

I will keep an eye on this and follow up if official or more reliable sources post; however, for now, I'm calling it a rumor and saying don't hurt yourself by getting your hopes up.

That's right. Tomorrow, I take the big, horrifying leap into the real world. And I do mean horrifying.

The perfect 8-year span from the time I discovered My Chemical Romance and started high school to the end of my education is a remarkable coincidence and something for which I am so thankful. I also could have never predicted then just how huge of a role one band could play in my life.

High school is a trying 4 years for everyone. College is testing and terrifying in that it …
