After the coronavirus shutdowns in Italy forced the cancellation of the band’s concert with Exodus in Milan. They just kicked off “The Bay Strikes Back 2020” European tour with Exodus and Death Angel band. But in this outbreak, all concerts and festivals postponed and canceled. We heard some bad news about the band’s health problem. The 57-year-old Chuck Billy and his wife tested positive for COVID-19 (coronavirus). There are a few more positive tested in the band’s road crew.
Testament shares a statement on their Facebook page:
“As many of you already know, after returning from the ‘Bay Strikes Back’ over Europe Tour last week, some of us in Testament has been feeling unwell and have made the decision along with our Doctors to be tested for the COVID-19 novel coronavirus. As of yesterday morning, Chuck and [his wife] Tiffany Billy’s tests have come back positive as well as some crew members.
“We wanted to reach out to everyone who has been supporting us and expressing concern to inform you that we are doing what’s right, and what’s safe, and have all been quarantining ourselves since our return home; since before we were even tested. We are of course concerned for our families, our friends, our crew, our fellow musicians, and our fans. We’ve reached out to support our fellow Bay Area Bands who are also being proactive in their own camps, staying quarantined and safe, and will speak on their individual situations if and when they are ready to.
“At this moment we are currently focused on staying safe and quarantined, resting, getting ourselves back to health, and of course, sending well wishes, prayers, and positive energy towards our friends who are also sick. We also want to send well wishes to all of our fans and supporters in this time of crisis. We’re taking all the necessary steps to stay safe at home and we ask our friends and fans to do the same. Please take care of each other, and stay healthy so we can continue to thrash in the not so distant future!”
