The World Contamination Tour was a concert tour supporting My Chemical Romance's fourth album Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys. This was the first tour My Chemical Romance had done since the departure of their drummer Bob Bryar. For the tour, Michael Pedicone was the stand-in drummer. This also proved to be My Chemical Romance's final headlining tour.
