Bassist Johnny Christ of Avenged Sevenfold will be missing the upcoming tour due to his new son being born. Taking his vacancy will be guitar tech Dave Stauble. Chris will be back Feb 15. His statement on his good situation: “Hello to all the fans out there, I wanted to share the news with you all that my wife and I recently added a new addition to the A7X family, Franklin James. Unfortunately because of this exciting announcement I have had to stay back and miss a couple of shows in one of my favorite countries, Germany. We have one of our amazing techs filling in so the shows can go on. I’ll be catching back up with you guys in Berlin on Feb. 15th. Can’t wait to see you all, thanks for everyone’s support.

– Daddy Christ”
