My Chemical Romance, Muse Poisoned
119
My Chemical Romance and support act Muse deeply regret that they have had to cancel several dates on their current tour due to members of My Chemical Romance band and crew and members of Muse's crew being struck with serious food poisoning. The nationwide tour, supporting My Chemical Romance's platinum album The Black Parade and Muse's album, Black Holes And Revelations, was brought to a standstill on Sunday when several members of My Chemical Romance's band and crew and members of Muse's crew became violently ill after the show at William and Mary College in Williamsburg, VA. With multiple people scattered in hospitals between State College, PA and Columbus, OH, the bands were forced to cancel Sunday night's show at the Bryce Jordan Center in State College, PA and postpone the show in Columbus, OH from Tuesday, May 1st to Wednesday, May 2nd, provided everyone has recovered. The show originally scheduled for tomorrow night at the Petersen Events Center in Pittsburgh, PA 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. Tickets for the April 29th Bryce Jordan and May 2nd Pittsburgh show will be refunded at point of purchase and My Chemical Romance hope to make it back there before the end of the year.

    well Musically Muse are a much better band how they are supporting a band such as MCR is confusing to me. MCR is just a run of the mill emo band who are rubbish. Muse is one of the best bands in the world. and not just in the UK they have millions of fans worldwide especially in mainland Europe.

    Gee, I find it funny how there are a bunch of posts before mine, stating how they wished the band would have died instead, but I get my posting checked because I said their had weak immune systems and were pussies for it. Great moderating there, chief. Seems like you had one too many beers to be operating that heavy machinery. Be consistent.

    -___- you are pathetic. they are not EMO, btw. whats the point in putting down MCR fans? why can't you keep your comments to yourself? woah, didn't Frank just have food poisoning? and now he does again with everyone else?

    Now all the emo kids are going to be poisoning themselves so they can be "cool" like MCR.

    everytime i read an article on here the headline makes the story seem so much crazier than it actually is! pisses me off lol

    for the love of Bob Bryar, they are not emo.
    what are they then you cant even start to tell me their are punk or punk rock, cause there will be beatings served for that kind of talk

    Well I live in Australia, and we love our Muse. They are a quality band, and I prefer them than My Chemical Romance anyday. But I do hope they all get better, food poisoning is nasty stuff.

    Oh just realised Muse aren't big in America. Well to all u Americans out there Muse are a good band download The Origin of Symetry for a gd album. And someone says MCR tickets sell out in like 5mins? Just shows there are way to many ****ing emos in America.

    and i hope MCR is alright as well coz they are musicians and people and even though you may not like their music to wish death on anyone like many of you have done is bad.
    The Spoon
    .... .... They're next album will be a concept record of a young man dying in the hospital of food poisoning.

    Haha. I love both bands (caught the tour in nashville). I've liked mCR for a while and just gotten into Muse lately. But seriously. My Chem is equally mainstream now, if not more so. I hear welcome to the black parade on my local soft rock station all the time. They've definately sold out; no denying that. Hope everyone gets better...

    OMG!! They have pulled a GN'R lets all bitch about the bands not caring about their fans.....

    Look I enjoy some MCR, but their songs are more mainstream then Muse? I've heard Muse on the radio twice. I hear MCR every day, most of the time multiple times a day. None of my friends know who Muse even is, they think it is only an intangible thing. MCR everyone knows because they are too mainstream. I hope both bands get better, but Muse needs to get to LA without MCR and pricey tickets so I can see em.

    I just saw them live the show b4 they went to VA. lucky me. ... muse sucked. I actually sat down through their whole act and just like played with the grass.

    Shame for all the fans who were hoping to see them, would've been an amazing gig. Hope they can reschedule.

    You are a catchy music listener instead of a music appreciator if you think Muse is not as good if not clearly better. In the states, NO ONE HAS EVER heard of Muse, it really pisses me off.
    RaiLeff
    What the ****? I really hate them, but still... I feel deeply sorry for those all those fans that died to see them live :O
    RaiLeff
    And if you see a band and you dont know their songs, youre not gonna like them Its kinda obvious?

    no muse aren't supporting them, both groups are going on tour together to advertise their new albums. they are supporting each other.

    Writing a poem? You don't have to start a new line every sentence. Hope they all get better, no matter who they are.

    and that doesn't mean i like mcr (i think its a travesty that they tour with such an awesome band).

    MCR should be supporting MUSE if anything. hopefully muse are alright

    You know what funny? I think that was the show my brother's fiance was at this weekend and she ended getting a migraine and spent the whole concert in the bathroom puking.
    LoveMCR
    In addition. I feel so bad for them. =[. And not just MCR, the crew too. I hope they all get better soon. =D! [LoveMCRWithAllYourHeart]

    I am one of those deeply disappointed fans that right now should be at the concert. This sucks. I also hoped and thought that food poisoning was a day or two thing but I have now been told that depending on the severity it can last days or weeks. Knocks the shit out of you. I am a fan of both bands and I hope all members and crew are fine soon. Just wish it could have been sooner than later.

    HAHAHAHA i bet muse are making MCR look shit. MCR can't play for shit. muse are amazing live - can't wait to see em again this year.

    well there was led zeppelin doing equivalent of that but they are an extremely famous and old band. im proud of muse and i hope their new album is gonna be kickarse!

Perhaps MCR is headlining because their album is Platinum, Muse dont have a platinum Album... So if you want to argue about popularity..... MRC wins... as record sales shows... or perhaps MRC just has more loyalfans that actually pay for their album
