Here's what happened with My Chemical Romance at the festival we mentioned earlier.
Eyewitness AccountOnce Slayer finished their set, the band's fans stuck around chanting their name. When MCR began, the people proceeded to throw bottles and debris at them, which eventually ceased halfway into their set.
