Falling In Reverse Draw Criticism For Cancelling Recent Live Show Due To “Missing Laptops”, Ronnie Radke Says “As A Band In 2022, You Need Your Laptops”


This past weekend saw Falling In Reverse pulling out of their spot on the WIIL Rock Fest at the Lake County Fairgrounds in Grayslake, IL due to some “missing laptops” crucial to the band’s live shows.

Hard rock chart-toppers Shinedown were the headliners for that one-day festival, which also boasted sets from Jelly Roll, Jackyl, Saliva and more. Falling In Reverse were the second highest band on the bill.

The platinum-certified Las Vegas, NV-based Falling In Reverse have been met with considerable derision on social media since their vocalist Ronnie Radke announced the cancellation of their performance a day prior to the show.

In the below video, Radke stated of the of the situation:

WIIL Rock, I regret to inform you that we have to cancel and we have no other option. I’m sorry. And I never make videos like this, but I feel like I owe it to you guys. So we show up to rehearsal. We only planned to rehearse one time. Because we just got off tour, we don’t need to rehearse that much. And we walk into rehearsals and our laptops are missing that we run all of our show on and stuff.

And as a band in 2022, you need your laptops. It’s like driving a car without an engine. It’s really unfortunate. Supposedly they are lost. Blame it on our crew, I guess. I don’t know how that happened; that’s never happened before. [I’m] pretty upset about it. They are brand new laptops. And I’ll see you guys at ‘Aftershock‘ in Sacramento on October 2nd. I’m very sorry, guys.”
