Godsmack Postpone Tour Following The Death Of Guitarist's Son

Godsmack have postponed their 2018 European tour following some very sad news: guitarist Tony Rombola's son has unexpectedly passed away.

Vocalist guitarist Sully Erna has released the following statement:

“With my deepest regrets, and on behalf of our guitarist Tony and his wife Sue, I am personally writing this message to all of our fans worldwide to inform you that Tony and his family have suffered a loss that no parent should ever have to endure. Tony and Sue’s son Joe Fay passed away last week, unexpectedly, at the young age of 34. He was one of the kindest and most humble guys I had ever met. And, he was a FAN. Just like all of you. He literally lived the success of Godsmack through his Dad. He was always so excited and proud just to be around all of us, and we will all miss him deeply. As we await more information on how this happened, we humbly ask that you respect Tony and his family’s privacy as they take time to process this and heal.

“We appreciate all of your patience, prayers and support in this very trying time. And I promise you, we ARE coming back bigger and stronger in the beginning of 2019, and we WILL honour all of these tour dates in Europe and across this globe.”

Kerrang!'s thoughts are with Tony, Sue and the rest of Joe's friends and family at this devastating time.
