Coheed and Cambria drummer Josh Eppard shockingly collapsed on his drum kit during the band’s House of Blues show in Orlando, Florida’s House of Blues this past Friday night. He was treated by paramedics and insisted on going back onstage and completing the set.
Below is some poor quality fan-filmed footage of the worrying incident.
The band would later update fans on Eppard’s condition, confirming he would be undergoing a procedure called a “cardiac ablation,” which should fix an irregular heartbeat he has had for some time. They would add they would be canceling the rest of their Midwest gigs and those in scheduled in Australia. Thankfully though, for fans, they confirmed they would be back in 2020.
Let there be no confusion, we will be back bigger and stronger in 2020, and are already planning big announcements.
If you want to follow him on his journey, he will surely be documenting it on his socials @weerd_science
Thank you for your Neverending support,
Coheed and Cambria
