Avenged Sevenfold to Miss Tonight’s Show with Metallica

  • Axl Rosenberg

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but if you’re going to see Metallica’s stadium tour tonight in Philadelphia and you were looking forward to seeing Avenged Sevenfold as well, uhh… that ain’t happening.

Explains the band:

“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.”

What, you mean they couldn’t find a replacement at the very last second? What a crock! It’s not like Gates has a hard job or anything. Any child could play A7X.

Obviously, I’m kidding.

Congrats to Mr. and Mrs. Gates on the birth of their child, and congrats to Baby Gates on not only being born, but being born to a rich rockstar dad. You won the lottery, kid!
