I'm so sorry to all of our Moscow fans who came to see us tonight, the stage was unsafe and electrocuted @FrankiePalmeri. We will make it up... he will be ok but the stage wasn't wired safely & shocked the shit out of him. A sad day for us but we'll make it up."

Palmeri later offered the following:

"Sorry I almost literally died on stage tonight #Moscow. Getting zapped by 200 volts feels like shit. Ya almost got me tonight. #STILLALIVE"
