Metallica's big WorldWired tour kicked off earlier this week, and its suffering its first hiccup. Avenged Sevenfold will be unable to make tonight's gig in Philadelphia, but they have a great reason…
Brian “Synyster Gates” Haner is going to be a dad! The band made the following statement:
“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 Metallicaand 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.
While many fans will be upset, I can't imagine anybody holding this against Gates. Get remaining dates here.
