Billy Sheehan To Sit Out Sons Of Apollo’s South American Tour

Sons Of Apollo bassist Billy Sheehan will be sitting out the band’s South American tour due to “travel restrictions.” During his absence, Angra’s Felipe Andreoli will be filling in.

Top Link Music manager and concert promoter Paulo Baron issued the following statement:

“Billy Sheehan will not be able to participate in the tour for personal reasons that he did not want to disclose to me, but that we respect, so both Sons Of Apollo and I, who am the promoter of the tour, invited Felipe Andreoli to replace the great bassist Billy Sheehan.”

Andreoli added:

“For me it is a huge honor to replace Billy in these shows. He is one of my great heroes of the bass and history. I learned a lot watching him play.”
