Sevendust’s John Connolly Set To Rejoin The Band On Tour Following COVID-19 Bout


Gold-certified alternative metallers Sevendust have been down a guitarist for a pair of shows as a result of John Connolly contracting COVID-19. That illness has marked the first time he has missed playing a show with the band, as he stated in the below update on his condition shared yesterday, August 02nd.

“To the Sevendust family-

I had to do something this week that I have never had to do in my whole career – I had to miss a Sevendust show. In all of our years as a band, I have performed in every Sevendust concert played. Sadly, I had to miss last night and tonight. As people that follow my social media know, I have been training for my upcoming New York City marathon. During one of those sessions, I was exposed to COVID..

To prevent any possible exposure from myself to my bandmates: Lajon, Clint, Vinnie, Morgan, our crew, Alter Bridge and Mammoth WVH and their teams, local staff and attendees – I made the decision to sit out the first 2 shows. I was watching tonight’s show via FaceTime and my Sevendust brothers sounded great. I feel fine and am now testing negative. I am all packed and ready to board my plane tomorrow to meet up with everyone and I’ll be back rocking with you all soon.
