Muse, MCR Tour Still Hit by Illness

Muse’s big U.S. arena tour with My Chemical Romance has hit another buffer, with a third show cancelled for this weekend.

Both bands and their support crew became ‘violently ill’ following a bout of suspected foot poisoning in Virgina following a show on April 29th, which led to two shows being pulled in Pennsylvania and Ohio.

Despite managing to perform at New Jersey’s Bamboozle Festival over the weekend, the artists and crew continue to feel the ill effects this week and have pulled their show in Portland, Maine this Sunday (May 13th).

Playing Bamboozle put the band and crew “in a further weakened state, and they have been put on a two-day bed rest,” a statement reads. Tickets for the Portland show will be refunded at points of purchase.
