Lamb Of God To Miss Tonight’s Show In Fort Wayne, IN As Randy Blythe Continues To Recover From COVID-19


New wave of American heavy metal outfit Lamb Of God have been forced to drop off of tonight’s (April 21st) show in Fort Wayne, IN. Their absence from the bill comes about as their frontman Randy Blythe is still not cleared to tour after contracting COVID-19 this past weekend.

The group managed go ahead with their Grand Rapids, MI show earlier this week with the assistance of Chimaira vocalist Mark Hunter, along with Trivium‘s Matt Heafy and In FlamesAnders Fridén (see footage of that here.) However, with Hunter having since taken ill with a non-COVID sickness, the band have been forced to scrap tonight’s show.

Megadeth, Trivium and In Flames will perform as previously planned at tonight’s show. A statement issued today by Lamb Of God reads:

“Fort Wayne – we made our best efforts to put on a show tonight but unfortunately it is just not possible. Mark Hunter went above and beyond to make the show happen for us Tuesday and unfortunately has fallen ill today (NOT Covid). We truly appreciate his efforts but it appears the universe has other plans for us. We are working hard to make the show happen tomorrow and will update our fans in Green Bay as soon as we can.

Megadeth, Trivium and In Flames will play as scheduled tonight.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.”
