My Chemical Romance are set to open for Bon Jovi in New Jersey after being personally invited by the MOR rockers.

Bon Jovi are set to play a ten night residency at the new Newarks Prudential Centre in the Garden State.

My Chemical Romance will support them for two nights on October 25-26 and Gerard Way says they are hugely honoured.

He said of the opportunity: "Growing up in New Jersey isn't like growing up anywhere else; there's an amazing amount of pride involved.

To be asked to open for New Jersey's own Bon Jovi at the grand opening of the Prudential Centre is an amazing honour. it's more than anything a group of kids from the Garden State could ask for."
