Avenged Sevenfold Cancel Milan, Italy Show Due To M. Shadows’ Laryngitis, Stagehand Dies Following Stuttgart, Germany Show

Avenged Sevenfold have cancelled their show with Disturbed and Chevelle in Milan, Italy tonight (February 21) as a result of M. Shadows coming down with laryngitis. The band reportedly played a shorter set in Stuttgart, Germany yesterday as well.

In other news, a 19-year-old stagehand, reportedly named Marvin P., at the Stuttgart, Germany concert passed away following the show. His death was caused by a 26-year-old co-worker who fell on top of him while trying to take apart the stage production. R.I.P.

We have some very sad news to report. Last night after our show in Stuttgart, Germany, a 26 year old stagehand fell from the rafters while breaking down our stage. He fell a very far distance onto a 19 year old man on the local crew. Tragically, the 19 year old died from his injuries. The other man is now in critical condition at the hospital. This is beyond heartbreaking to everyone in the band and on our crew. We all send our thoughts and prayers to the man in the hospital, both families involved, all of the local Live Nation crew and everyone else whose lives have been affected by this terrible accident. We love our crew so much as well as the many local staff who are essential to our show every night wherever we are around the world. This is such a stark reminder of how quickly an accident can happen and lives shattered in the process. When we hear more we will update you.
