Trivium Bassist Paolo Gregoletto To Miss Immediate Shows Following Emergency Hernia Surgery


Trivium bassist/vocalist Paolo Gregoletto has been sidelined by emergency hernia surgery and will be absent from the band’s immediate shows of their summer European/UK touring. In his place, the group have recruited Malevolence guitarist Josh Baines.

A statement issued today, August 03rd, by Trivium reads as follows:

“Yesterday, we arrived in Germany from America.

After experiencing abdominal pain, Paolo needed to be taken to the hospital for emergency hernia surgery late in the night.

The operation went well and Paolo is recovering.

Paolo will need to stay under observation for the next few days, and Josh from Malevolence will be filling in for the next few shows.

Please send your healing energy and love over Paolo’s way – you’ll be seeing him back on stage in a few days.

See you tomorrow Wacken!”

A separate update shared by Gregoletto himself reveals that he hopes to rejoin up with the tour next week. He expects to be playing while seated during those shows.
