Machine Head Concert Compromised By Beer
Machine Head ran into sound issues during their concert in London on Saturday after a fan tossed a full 32-ounce beer on the group's soundboard during the set.
The band is in the midst of a 25th-anniversary tour celebrating their debut album "Burn My Eyes" and took to social media to explain how a fan spoiled their November 2nd show at the O2 Academy Brixton.
They wrote on Instagram, LONDON!! Last night was tough. First off: We want to thank every single person who attended last nights incredible show. Selling out Brixton Academy in 8 hours, was quite frankly mind-blowing!
"It was unfortunate that some a**hole had to throw a full 32 ounce beer on our soundboard, and completely take it out of commission during the Burn My Eyes set. Your patience and respect to us, and each other, during the whole 20 minute debacle was admirable, and we can't thank you enough.?
"It did however compromise the rest of the show, and for that we are incredibly sorry. You deserved better than that, and due to consequences beyond our control, we could not deliver that."?
"Our awesome crew, and specifically our bad ass soundman Steve Lagudi, scrambled to reroute everything over to our monitor board, and as you all know, after a 20 minute break, we were miraculously able to finish the show. Had he not been so quick on his feet about what to do, the show likely could never have finished." Read the full post here.
