Emmure Frontman Frankie Palmeri Electrocuted During Performance in Moscow
Traveling to Russia is a memorable enough experience for most bands, but Emmure's Frankie Palmeri will remember his Moscow performance Tuesday (May 7) as the night he got electrocuted onstage.
The band was performing and right in the midst of one of their songs, the singer seized up and fell to the ground. It appears as though another person trying to help Palmeri received a jolt as well as evidenced by the man's reaction in fan-shot footage of the incident. The video of Palmeri's onstage electrocution, courtesy of PostHardcore TV, can be seen below, but we warn sensitive viewers of the jarring content.
Loudwire sends our best to Palmeri as he recovers from the jolt. Emmure has some time off before they resume touring in Australia at the end of the month. The band plays a handful of Mayhem Festival warm-up dates beginning June 22 in Knoxville, Tenn. before the tour's official kickoff on June 29 in San Bernardino, Calif.
