FRANK IERO Cancels All Remaining 2016 Tour Dates Following Serious Bus Crash


Iero and his band cancelled the rest of the tour “due to the severity of injuries sustained in Australia”

October 18, 2016

After ex-My Chemical Romance’s guitarist Frank Iero got into a traffic accident in Australia last week, he had to cancel the rest of 2016 tour dates. The official statement reads that the band cannot go on with the tour “due to the severity of injuries sustained in Australia.”

As reported ealier, the band was involved into a severe traffic accident last week. The band’s tour van was parked in front of Australia’s Twitter Headquarters when a bus crashed into the back of it. Iero “escaped injury but two other men had to be taken to hospital”.

Iero later took to Twitter after the accident to tell fans “thanks all for the well wishes. We’re pretty banged up but miraculously alive and in stable condition. I’m still in a state of shock.”

At first, Iero and Co. only called off the show at Sydney’s Metro Theatre but it has just been announced that the band has cancelled all remaining 2016 tour dates (via Rock Sound). Iero was scheduled to play a series of shows in North America this and next month.

Will Frank Iero And The Patience still embark on a UK/European tour with Taking Back Sunday in February 2017? This information is still to be revealed, so stay updated for more AlteRock news on Iero’s touring plans.
