Rev Theory Cancels Tour After Freak Accident

For want of a bottle opener, a tour was lost.

A rather unusual encounter with a beer bottle has deep-sixed Rev Theory’s participation in the tour featuring Five Finger Death Punch along with All That Remains and Hatebreed.

While at a wedding reception in Las Vegas, Rev Theory guitarist Julien Jorgensen was standing near an individual who was trying to open a bottle of beer without using an opener. That’s when the bottle slipped, shattered and sliced Jorgensen’s left hand, severing a tendon.

Although a full recovery is expected, Jorgensen is understandably disappointed that his band’s tour plans have been nixed.

“I am super bummed that happened, and it is a freak accident,” Jorgensen said in a statement. “It is a helpless feeling. I feel bad about dropping off the tour and disappointing the fans. As soon as I am able, we will be back on the road.”
