Lacuna Coil Stood In Silence Instead Of Performing During A Recent Streaming Concert


Lacuna Coil staged a silent protest of sorts during what fans expected to be a livestreamed performance this weekend for an event dubbed ”L’Ultimoe Concerto?‘. As the band explained it, the gesture was done to raise awareness for the live club scene in the band’s native Italy, which continue to suffer greatly under the continued COVID-19 lockdown. The band commented:

“For those watching from all over the world, we’re sorry you guys didn’t get to see the show you were expecting. We just stood in silence, showing our support to the live club scene. Unfortunately, live clubs in Italy and the rest of the world have been closed for a year now, and there’s no sign of re-opening anytime soon. We believe they should get the right attention and recognition, because that is what they deserve: to be considered as cultural spaces. Hopefully, this initiative will bring their uncertain situation to everybody’s attention”

They further stated in an official statement:

“You were expecting to see a live show while we just stood in silence. It’s not a bad joke. This is the situation of live clubs in Italy. Places where we got to meet man of you.

It is with this bitter taste in our mouths that we’re asking for your support for them. A live show with no music is not a live show. A silent live club is not a live club.

Thanks for being part of this, for your support, and for being there in this very moment which will hopefully be a turning point.

From now on, we just want to talk about the next live show. Thank you!”
