Fleshgod Apocalypse were forced to cancel their Cremona, Italy performance at Road to Luppolo on August 29th due to frontman Francesco Paoli, who recently suffered severe injuries from a rock climbing incident. Paoli, who has notoriously shared his love for adventure, was injured while climbing the Gran Sasso mountains in Abruzzo, Italy.
The group explained:
“Last Saturday, August 21st, our singer Francesco Paoli suffered severe injuries while rock climbing the Gran Sasso mountains in Abruzzo, Italy. Despite suffering several fractures, Francesco is currently stable at a local hospital while receiving treatment for his injuries. In light of this, Fleshgod Apocalypse is forced to cancel their Cremona, Italy show at “Road to Luppolo” scheduled this Sunday the 29th. More details will be shared as soon as we have more info available.”
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to mutate its overall ugliness, Fleshgod Apocalypse were finally able to step out from the shadows to hold their first live gig in over a year earlier this month, on August 14th, at Metal On The Hill. While the band has expressed he’s currently in stable condition, we’re not sure about the severity of his injuries along with his recovery time. We wish Paoli to have a healthy and speedy recovery.
