Gojira Cancel July Shows Due to the Death of Joe and Mario Duplantier’s Mother
Gojira are apparently canceling their shows for the rest of July due to the death of Joe and Mario Duplantier’s mother. The band has issued the following statement:
“We are deeply saddened to report that the brothers Joe and Mario Duplantier’s mother passed away last night. As a result, Gojira will be postponing their upcoming performances this week in Luxembourg July 6th, Martigny July 7th, and Prattein July 8th.
Best efforts will be made to reschedule these dates, and refunds will be available at point of purchase. We sincerely thank all of you for your understanding and support during this difficult time.”
How terribly sad.
It’s sometimes hard to remember that your metal idols are human, but everyone has a mom. Our thoughts and condolences go out to Joe, Mario, and all their family and friends in this time.
Fans are urged to go to the band’s Facebook page and send their condolences. In the meantime, go hug your mom.
