While an engagement ring worn on the third finger of the left hand is a time-honored tradition for betrothed women, engagement rings for men are increasing in popularity, and singer Gerard Way has embraced this cutting-edge trend. On June 1, 2007 the frontman for My Chemical Romance confided to his fans during an interview held at Germany’s annual Rock am Ring festival that the ring he has been sporting is a symbol of his upcoming wedding to Eliza Cuts. The vocalist will be following in the footsteps of his younger brother, My Chemical Romance bassist Mikey Way, who slipped a wedding band on to Alicia Simmon’s finger on March 8, 2007 during a wedding ceremony conducted backstage at The Orleans Arena in Las Vegas.
UPDATE: Although engaged to another earlier this year, MTV News reports that Gerard Way, lead vocalist of My Chemical Romance, walked down the aisle with Lyn Z, bassist for Mindless Self Indulgence, over the Labor Day 2007 weekend. The couple spoke their wedding vows at Coors Amphitheatre in Englewood, Colorado. Lovetripper will post more information when it becomes available.
