As we continue to see an increase in shows and events postponed including SXSW, Coachella, Nightwish, Slipknot and more, we can only expect to see this as our unfortunate new normal. The coronavirus continues to spread, which you can be informed on what to expect in a new Joe Rogan Experience episode. With that being said, many most likely have expected this, Fleshgod Apocalypse’s North American Tour has been postponed. This was a huge tour for the group as it would be their first-ever with a string quartet. However, since Italy is under lockdown and as the coronavirus spreads, precautions have to be made.
Read the full statement below:
“In an unfortunate turn of events, Italian orchestral-death metal giants FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE have been forced to postpone their North American tour due to travel restrictions implemented in response to the spread of COVID-19, “Coronavirus.”
What was to be one of metal’s most anticipated spring tours, where the band was to be accompanied at shows by a classical string quartet for the first time ever, will now take place at a later date to be announced as plans are confirmed. Information regarding tickets will be made public soon.
A statement from FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE:
It is with heavy hearts that we must announce the postponement of our upcoming tour in North America with the Veleno String Quartet and The Agonist. This has been decided upon due to current entry restrictions in the United States, following recent cases of coronavirus in Italy.
We’re absolutely devastated about the delay, but we’re already working to reschedule the tour for late Summer/early Fall (exact dates coming soon).
We know that there are so many people waiting for us in the US and Canada and we can’t wait to see you. We’ll keep you updated as shows are being rebooked, after which the show tickets and VIP tickets will be honored. So please stay tuned for further developments.
To the many of you asking how you can help support during this time, merch purchases always help and will be used to get us back up to speed and on the road. You can check out our store here: shop.fleshgodapocalypse.com
Thank you guys so much for the immense support. We’ll see you on the road, sooner than you think!”
