MCR to perform in June

While Lamar is set to perform in July, music lovers in London also have another concert to look forward to in June.

The band recently shared the news in a Twitter video entitled 'An Offering'. According to international media reports, the tickets of the show will be going on sale on Ticketmaster from January 24 and is expected to cost anything from £45 to £85. 

The band hasn't played in UK for nine years and now fans across social media are hyped about the announcement and are anxious about getting their hands on a ticket for the band's return in London.

The band is still riding the high from their comeback gig in Los Angeles back in December.
