I reported last night that Avenged Sevenfold had canceled their performance in Fort Wayne, IN due to M. Shadows falling ill. Now, Avenged Sevenfold have posted a new blog letting fans know that M. Shadows had a horrible case of food poisoning and had been hospitalized. They’ll be playing tonight’s show in St. Louis, MO and Matt is also due to post his own message to the fans at some point.

As many of you know, M. Shadows came down with a vicious case of food poisoning in Ft Wayne which required him to be hospitalized tonight. The band feels terrible they were unable to play, as they had really been looking forward to seeing their fans in Ft. Wayne. M. Shadows will post a personal note to the Ft Wayne fans soon. What we can tell you is that it took 3 IV bags before he could leave the hospital.

But we wanted to let everyone know at the earliest possible time that he is out of the hospital and the band is now on its way to St. Louis and will play the show at Family Arena as scheduled tomorrow night February 17.

More to follow but we wanted to get you the news asap.

Glad to see it wasn’t a problem with his voice again. I’m going to see them in Cleveland, OH on Friday so I was really afraid that it would get canceled.

Bloody hell, that’s a really shitty thing to be stuck with. I hope he’s feeling better!

I was so dissappointed when they didn’t play. I’ve never seen them before, and they’ve never come to Fort Wayne. Hell, no one comes to Fort Wayne, unless it’s to Pierre’s, and then us minors are screwed. I had a perfect seat too and was so excited, so them not playing was devastating.

I didn’t know it was so serious though. :x Poor Matt, I hope he’s feeling better, and that they make it back here sometime.

Aww Matt!! I had food poisoning the day before graduation and to anyone who hasn’t had it, it fuckin sucks like none other. And 3 IV bags?! Holy moly dude’s been through the gamut lately that’s for sure, putting that health insurance to good use. I really hope he’s feeling alright tonight. Both for himself and the fans who I know are anxious to see them.

Rather food poisoning than anything else!! I was in the hospital for a burst appedix just yesterday and let me tell you, IV’s aren’t all that bad. They’re usually for draining. He’ll be okay, but definitly the best wishes are sent for him!

For starters, to fatty, Matt is far from a son of a bitch. And it’s funny, I did research for hours, and it wasn’t posted in any news paper, so why don’t you back your fucking facts before posting them. It wasn’t heroin you idiot it was food poisoning. If you don’t know the truth don’t post shit. You better hope Matt doesn’t see this and get your isp address and sue your dumb ass for slander. I was lucky to be front row at the St. Louis show. Matt looked great and they did an awesome job!!!
