Lamb Of God played their show in Green Bay, WI at the Resch Center on April 22 with vocalist Joe Badolato from Fit For An Autopsy filling in for Randy Blythe, who is currently recovering from COVID. Lamb Of God said they expect Blythe to rejoin them on Sunday at their show in Sioux Falls, SD. But in the meantime, you can check out Badolato absolutely crushing it with the band below! Seriously, for being on such short notice the dude kills it. Vio-lence guitarist Phil Demmel also filled in for Lamb Of God bassist John Campbell as well for the show, though no announcement about why has yet been made.
Blythe unfortunately contracted COVID sometime during the tour and missed the band's April 19 show in Grand Rapids, MI. Lamb Of God recruited Chimaira vocalist Mark Hunter to take Blythe's place alongside tourmates Anders Fridén of In Flames and Matt Heafy of Trivium, and everyone did a fantastic job with the material. Unfortunately Hunter came down with a non-COVID-related ailment as well shortly after the show (Hunter said it was due to a genetic condition), forcing Lamb Of God to drop off their show on April 21 in Fort Wayne, IN.
Lamb Of God's tour with Megadeth, Trivium and In Flames runs as follows. We also wish Blythe all the best in his ongoing recovery from COVID, and really truly hope he can get back up on stage with the band tomorrow night.
