Metallica Cancel An Upcoming Show After A Family Member Tested Positive For COVID
Metallica recently took to their Instagram page to announce that they had to cancel their forthcoming show due to a COVID-positive family member.
After their triumphant show at Hellfest on June 26, 2022, Metallica was going to headline the Out In The Green festival that would take place on June 29, 2022. However, they recently announced that they had to cancel the show on their Instagram page.
In their recent Instagram post, Metallica announced that their show at the Out In The Green festival at Frauenfeld Rocks in Switzerland was canceled because a member of the Metallica family was diagnosed with COVID.
The metal icons then apologized to the fans for disappointing them. They then revealed that they tried to schedule a new show in Switzerland, but this won’t be possible this year or in 2023 because schedules and venues don’t line up.
Moreover, the band revealed that fans who still want to attend the Out In The Green festival would receive a 50 Swiss francs refund, and if they don’t like to attend, they can request a refund at Ticketmaster’s website. According to the group, Five Finger Death Punch, Sabaton, Eluveitie, Fever 333, and Chaoseum will take the stage on June 29.
The band’s announcement in the Instagram post read:
“Frauenfeld Rocks Cancellation.
It is with a very heavy heart that we are announcing that we will not be appearing at Frauenfeld Rocks in Switzerland today, as, unfortunately, a member of the Metallica family has tested positive for COVID. We are beyond sorry to disappoint those planning to attend this show.
We intend to reschedule a show in Switzerland as soon as possible. However, in overnight discussions with the local promoters, sadly, it became apparent that schedules and venues do not line up for the remainder of this year or next.”
“If you have a ticket and would still like to attend Out in the Green, you will receive a refund of 50 Swiss francs. Should you decide not to attend the festival altogether, you will be refunded the ticket price by the respective ticket agencies; you may request a refund for your ticket at Ticketmaster’s website.
Bands appearing today at Out In The Green include Five Finger Death Punch, Sabaton, Eluveitie, Fever 333, and Chaoseum.”
