Italian symphonic death metal band Fleshgod Apocalypse have released the following statement:
“Last Saturday, August 21, our singer Francesco Paoli was seriously injured while climbing the Gran Sasso mountains in Abruzzo, Italy. Despite several fractures, Francesco is currently stable in a local hospital while receiving treatment for his injuries.
In light of this, Fleshgod Apocalypse is being forced to cancel his Cremona, Italy show at Road To Luppolo scheduled for Sunday 29. More details will be shared as soon as we have more information available. “
The organizers of the Road To Luppolo festival have issued their own press release:
“Dear Luppoliens, we have a double news for you: the first is that unfortunately Fleshgod Apocalypse will not be able to be there due to a bad fall during a hike by the leader Francesco Paoli who is not in such a state as we may face a show, at least for the next few weeks. We are so sorry but we understand the situation and wish Francesco a quick and optimal recovery.
We did not waste a second to be able to offer you a show that puts in the spotlight such as Fleshgod Apocalypse, and thanks to our collaboration with Bagana we can officially announce the presence of the Genus Ordinis Dei.
Recently sold out at the Legend Club in Milan, with three active studio records and impressive credibility on the live front, Genus Ordinis Dei will literally dust off the evening of Sunday, August 29. After as planned, the concert of Nervosa and the closing of Jinjer.
Book your tickets here. “
