Last night (April 21), Morbid Angel ended up having to cut their Tampa, FL show short after guitarist Trey Azagthoth collapsed onstage. Bassist/vocalist Steve Tucker reportedly told the crowd that Azagthoth “injured himself,” before wrapping up the set after one more song.
Tucker told fans the following:
“This is the first time this has ever happened. Trey if of course the leader of Morbid Angel man. I myself do not feel right playing Morbid Angel songs without Trey next to me…”
Azagthoth’s mother Janell Fulghum Emmanuel has since issued a statement as well:
“I would like to say thank you for all of your well wishes for my son, Trey. As it appears, Trey was totally dehydrated. His back issue was due to him slipping while going down the stairs of the bus and hit his back on one of the stairs. They have decided to go ahead and have a show tonight And I am just hoping and praying that all goes well.
I had a message from Dan, he said that Trey got rest last night and was up and around and seem to be ready.
I will continue to watch anything I can find about tonight. When he returns home tomorrow, I know he’ll need rest, but also needs to get some medical help.
Again, thank you so much for your concern. He loves his fans.”
