Muse Opening for My Chemical Romance: Filed Under "I Just Threw Up In My Mouth"

I don't know if this is worse than Bloc Party opening for Panic! at the Disco. The dates follow the official word from Market Wire. I will keep my memories of Muse at Hammerstein Ballroom and opt out of this little mess at MPP.

BURBANK, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 06, 2007 -- MUSE, one of Britain's biggest bands, have secured the Special Guest slot with label mates My Chemical Romance this Spring.

A tour of Japan will follow in March leading up to the American dates. As reported previously, MUSE will also headline a pair of shows in California prior to the tour. At press time, the Los Angeles date at the Forum is now sold out. [Market Wire]

Your post title made me laugh though my tears. I felt the same way about Muse opening for MCR, but, I still got tickets to the merriweather show. For me, some Muse is better than no Muse. I plan to leave after their set. I still hope that they'll headline their own show in New York City.

does seem odd that they're not doing NYC but in no way is this worse than BP opening for PATD. MCR, as worthless as they are in my mind, are a hell of a lot more talented than Panic. I agree with Honey, I'd settle for any Muse any time. It was an easy pass on those BP tickets (even though they didn't even play)

Just saw that they're both doing the Bamboozle festival at the Meadowlands.



Burbank, CA — Reprise Records' My Chemical Romance will launch the second leg of their extensive tour in support of their Number One Rock album, the RIAA gold-certified, The Black Parade. The second round of the U.S. arena tour, produced by Art Show - a national touring division of Goldenvoice - will kick off in Houston, TX at the Reliant Arena. Tickets are on sale Saturday, February 10, 2007 via Ticketmaster.

The Black Parade, an epic theatrical concept album about mortality, has been named “Album Of The Year” by Blender Magazine, stating “My Chemical Romance transcended the cliché…to craft a grandiose epic that just might make them the biggest band in the world." Rolling Stone says "The Black Parade is the best mid-Seventies record of 2006, a rabid, ingenious paraphrasing of echoes and kitsch from rock's golden age of bombast."

The week after its release, The Black Parade claimed the Number One spot on SoundScan's Rock, Alternative, Top Albums Retailers, Indy/Small Chain, Internet, and Digital Album Charts. It also shot to Number 2 on Billboard's Top 200 album chart, selling more than 240,000 copies its first week of release. The first single, "Welcome To The Black Parade," has enjoyed eight weeks at the top of the Alternative / Modern Rock Radio Charts in the U.S. and the singles chart for two consecutive weeks in the UK.

It's silly to be critical about Muse opening for MCR. MCR is huge in the States. Muse is not. It's pretty smart of them to use MCR as a vector to be heard here. P.S. Muse won "best British band" and MCR won "best International band," so I guess more than a few people disagree with you on who's better.
