Good news for Synster Gates, bad news for music fans. Avenged Sevenfold will be missing tonight's show (May 12th) in Philadelphia. Mr. Gates's wife will be welcoming a child soon and as a result will not be in Philly. Bad news for Philly fans but understandable as this may be an excusable occasion. Fans still have Metallica, Volbeat, and Gojira to look forward to!
The band posted this in honor of..
"Sending love to our brother Synyster Gates, who flew home to be with his wife Michelle, who unexpectedly went into early labor with the birth of their first child. Unfortunately, this also means we won’t be able to play tonight’s gig with Metallica. We’ll miss seeing you all but know you’re in for an incredible show with the mighty Metallica and Volbeat. Please join us in welcoming the newest member of the A7X family and thanks so much for your support and understanding. We’ll see you all Sunday in New Jersey."
The band will be back on the WorldWired tour May 14th with Headliner Metallica!
