Jimmy Eat World replaces My Chemical Romance at SW

My Chemical Romance has been forced to withdraw from the upcoming Soundwave 2010 tour, with frontman Gerard Way suffering from severe vocal difficulties. The man is on doctor’s orders to allow his voice to recover, meaning no more shows for a while.

While it’s certainly a blow for the band’s many Australian fans, the last-minute cancellation comes with a silver lining. Pop-punk veterans Jimmy Eat World (the “number 1 most-requested band by Soundwave fans”) now join the bill.

Jimmy Eat World also jump on board the already-valued-packed Sidewaves of Glassjaw, Sunny Day Real Estate, Motion City Soundtrack and RX Bandits.
