Godsmack Postpones European Tour As Guitarist Tony Rombola Mourns The Death of His Son

October 17, 2018

Godsmack has been forced to postpone their Fall 2018 European tour due to the death of guitarist Tony Rombola's son.

Guitarist/vocalist Sully Erna has released a statement on behalf of himself and the band, saying, 

“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. Most importantly, 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. I promise you, we ARE coming back bigger and stronger in the beginning of 2019, and we WILL honor all of these tour dates in Europe and across this globe. So be ready!” - Sully Erna

Godsmack's European tour was scheduled to start on October 29th in Stockholm, Sweden. Previously purchased tickets will be honored on the rescheduled dates.
