Falling In Reverse recently cancelled their festival performance at 95 Wil Rock Fest 2022 due to their laptops going missing. The one-day event took place on Saturday, September 24 at Lake County Fairgrounds in Grayslake, Illinois.
Front-man Ronnie Radke and his bandmates cancelled their performance because their laptops are used to “run” their “show” — went missing.
In a one-minute video clip shared on WIIL Rock Facebook page, Radke stated: (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET):
WIIL Rock, I regret to inform you that we have to cancel and we have no other option. I’m sorry. And I never make videos like this, but I feel like I owe it to you guys.
So we show up to rehearsal. We only planned to rehearse one time. Because we just got off tour, we don’t need to rehearse that much. And we walk into rehearsals and our laptops are missing that we run all of our show on and stuff. And as a band in 2022, you need your laptops. It’s like driving a car without an engine. It’s really unfortunate. Supposedly they are lost. Blame it on our crew, I guess. I don’t know how that happened; that’s never happened before. [I’m] pretty upset about it. They are brand new laptops. And I’ll see you guys at Aftershock in Sacramento on October 2nd. I’m very sorry, guys.

News of the cancellation and reasoning has been met with a huge amount of criticism, with people expressing their disbelief of the situation
Can’t you just play your instruments and sing
So what you’re saying is you cannot “perform” without all your prerecorded tracks?
Dude says ‘blame our crew’ lol. Shifting the blame and not taking accountability. That’s so 2022.
Falling In Reverse are due to appear at the Monster Energy Aftershock Festival, which takes place between Thursday 06 October 2022 – Sunday 09 October 2022, pending the arrival of their laptops.
