Um, okay, that headline’s maybe a little bit misleading. But only a little bit. My Chemical Romance guitarist Frank Iero has said that it’s annoying when fans complain that the band’s tour dates don’t come to their home town. Eleven year olds in particular.

Speaking to AOL Music, Iero said: “It’s so hard these days, the touring industry is rough. If you don’t go to every single town then you have eleven year old over privileged brats tweeting, ‘You didn’t come to my city and now I fucking hate you!’ There’s not enough hours in a day and there’s not enough days in the year and you can’t do it for everybody. And that’s a shame, because you want to be able to. We love to play but at a certain point you have to do things for yourself”.
