My Chemical Romance Romance
Backstage is usually the place to unwind after a show, kick back with your bandmates and enjoy a couple of beers. But after My Chemical Romance supported Linkin Park on the final stop of their Projekt Revolution tour September 3, the backstage at the 16,823-capacity Coors Amphitheatre near Denver was turned into a makeshift wedding chapel.
My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way married bassist Lyn-Z from Mindless Self Indulgence backstage in a low-key ceremony. And the wedding was performed by a Live Nation official who happened to also be an ordained minister.
A Live Nation representative at the Denver office confirmed that a LN staff member performed the ceremony but kept everything else on the Q.T. and strictly hush-hush. The unnamed minister did not contact Pollstar at press time.
Singapore’s New Paper noted that the new groom’s bro, My Chemical Romance bassist Mikey Way, also tied the knot with Alicia Simmons backstage at a Las Vegas show in March.
