My Chemical Romance Issues Statement About Re-Boycott: They're Offically Back On The Sound Strike
Wishy-washy Sound Strikers My Chemical Romance have posted a short
and sweet statement about their re-boycott of Arizona.
We want to apologize to all our fans for the cancellation of our Phoenix show on May 24, 2011. This show should have never been booked due to our affiliation with Zach de la Rocha's The Sound Strike Organization. This was a horrible scheduling oversight on our part and for this we are deeply sorry.
For more information and how to help please visit www.thesoundstrike.net.
That about says it all, doesn't it? Since de la Rocha says he won't call off the Arizona boycott until the federal government makes sweeping changes to immigration policy, and since MCR's brand of emo-pop-punk is on its last legs, I feel pretty confident predicting the band never plays here again.
Sorry to all you Arizona-dwelling My Chemical Romance fans!
Then again, maybe it's time to grow up and like a band with a singer who doesn't wear guyliner.
Just an idea.
