My Chemical Romance and Muse Forced to Cancel Shows on Current Tour Due to Serious Illness From Food Poisoning

BURBANK, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 1, 2007 -- 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 shows will be refunded at point of purchase and My Chemical Romance hope to make it back there before the end of the year.
