Sabaton Car Crash

Sabaton Cancel Gdansk, Poland Show After Being Involved In Serious Car Accident


Sabaton were involved in a serious car accident while in Tunisia following a video shoot earlier this week. The injuries the band sustained have forced them to cancel their planned live show in Gdansk, Poland today (September 01st.) They issued the following statement on the matter, along with photos from the accident and video shoot:

“Two days ago in Tunisia we were involved in a serious traffic incident upon our return from a video shoot in the Sahara desert.

We are all broken, badly beaten, bleeding and stitched up, but happy to be alive and confident that we will be fully recovered over time.

However, after consulting medical expertise and evaluating all our injuries we are sure that we cannot do the scheduled concert in Poland today without risk of consequential injuries.

We will be back with full force in October for the North American tour and will return to Gdansk as soon as possible.

Until then we would like to share a few of our private images from the filming in Sahara and the accident.

Thanks for understanding /The Band.”
