The deadly coronavirus has its first metal casualty – a metal concert in Milan, Italy. Italy has been hit with a wave of the deadly disease, with 200 cases of people having the virus confirmed. Five people have died in Italy from the virus.
Because of this, many parts of northern Italy are on lockdown, with people banned from entering or leaving certain areas, and police told to fine anyone caught breaking this rule. This is happening in the northern region of Lombardy, where Milan is situated.
Because of this, the scheduled Testament, Exodus and Death Angel show for this Thursday, February 27th has been canceled. No further dates have been canceled at this time. Thankfully, none of the bands were in Italy, as they are currently traveling around Europe on this ongoing tour.
