Gojira brothers in mourning after mum's death
Three shows cancelled as Duplantier family deal with tragedy
Gojira have cancelled three shows after brothers Joe and Mario Duplantier's mother passed away.
The band scrapped Monday's gig in Luxembourg, tonight's show in Martigny, Switzerland, and Wednesday's concert in Pratteln, also Switzerland.
As it stands, they are set to return for a July 10 gig in France.
In a statement, Gojira say: “We are deeply saddened to report that the brothers Joe and Mario Duplantier's mother passed away last night. Best efforts will be made to reschedule these dates, and refunds will be available at point of purchase. We sincerely thank all of you for your understanding and support during this difficult time.”
