Posted to their mailing list this morning (sorry – I was out in the wilderness myself until recently, with no internet connection), Sabaton have announced their apologies for having to pull out of tonight’s Poland gig… but they have a very good excuse:
We are all broken, badly beaten, bleeding and stitched up, but happy to be alive and confident that we will be fully recovered over time.
However, after consulting medical expertise and evaluating all our injuries we are sure that we cannot do the scheduled concert in Poland today without risk of consequential injuries.
We will be back with full force in October for the North American tour and will return to Gdansk as soon as possible.
Until then we would like to share a few of our private images from the filming in Sahara and the accident.
Get well soon to all the band members and crew, and we’re very glad that it doesn’t sound that the injuries are too serious.
