Illness Halts My Chemical Romance/muse Tour
Food poisoning has brought My Chemical Romance's US tour with Muse to a temporary halt after band members were left sick and unable to perform.
The groups have cancelled several dates after members of My Chemical Romance and Muse's crew fell ill on Sunday (29Apr07) after a show at William and Mary College in Williamsburg, Virginia.
A statement reads, "With multiple people scattered in hospitals between State College, Pennsylvania and Columbus, Ohio, the bands were forced to cancel Sunday night's show at the Bryce Jordan Center in State College, Pennsylvania and postpone the show in Columbus, Ohio on Tuesday (01May07) to Wednesday (02May07), provided everyone has recovered.
"The show originally scheduled for tonight (02May07), at the Petersen Events Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, has been cancelled.
"My Chemical Romance and Muse would like their fans to know that they hope to resume the tour as soon as possible."
It isn't the first time My Chemical Romance's tour plans have been hit by sickness this year (07) - a mystery illness forced guitarist Frank Lero to pull the plug on the group's European tour and head home to America last month (Apr07).
