Italian symphonic metallers Fleshgod Apocalypse have announced the postponement of their previously scheduled North American tour with The Agonist, which was set to start in Dallas, TX next week.
In a statement, they say:
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!
The Agonist write:
Dear beloved The Agonist fans,
We’re extremely sorry to announce that we must postpone our upcoming tour with Fleshgod Apocalypse, as they will not be making it to North America due to the rapid spread of Covid-19 in Italy. This is of course not our choice, but comes as a result of quarantine protocol and entry restrictions into the USA. Nothing pleases us more than seeing your faces light up in the mosh pit, so the tentative timeframe to re-schedule the tour will be late summer/early fall. Guys, right now is a time where we could use your support more than ever to recoup our losses and get back in action! Feel free to check out our online merch store https://loudtrax.com/theagonist and pick up a few items. We love you all and see you soon!
Fleshgod Apocalypse were to tour North America this spring in support of their latest release, ‘Veleno,’ via Nuclear Blast.
The Agonist’s latest LP, ‘Orphans,’ came out last year on Napalm Records.
