My Chemical Romance Pay University

(antiMusic) University of Maine have reportedly settled with My Chemical Romance after the band pulled out of a performance on the campus at the last minute. According to PunkNews.org "The band was invoiced for all the promotional costs of the performance, which totaled over $20,000. The student government and the band recently announced a settlement, with the band agreeing to pay the University of Maine's Student Government over $20,500 in restitution."

So why did they pull the plug on the show? Drummer Bob Bryar blogged their reason on their Myspace page last week: Hi, it's Bob. We are very sorry about canceling our recent show in Maine. I have been having many problems with my wrists over the past few years. They have been getting worse but I kept playing. I have seen many doctors to get some relief so I wouldn't have to stop playing. I guess I pushed it too hard this time. During our show at Maxwell's I got a golf ball-sized lump in my wrist, I started to not only have pain, but lose control and feeling in my fingers. I went through a process to control the swelling and attempted to play the show with Bon Jovi the next day.

The Bon Jovi show was really bad for me - I was dropping sticks and could barely hit my drums. After that show we decided I had to go get immediate treatment. I had to leave the tour. Being the stubborn person I am, I made a last minute decision to give it another shot on the second Bon Jovi show. It didn't work, we had to cut the set in half. We have a fill in now as I am getting treatment - he learned the songs in one day. We will try our hardest to make the show up to you when the specialists give me the okay. Thanks for understanding. - EmoSpace
