EVANESCENCE drummer Will Hunt is vexed by some frustrated festivalgoers at Knotfest Mexico who lit his drums after a show cancellation.
Since the barrier in front of the stage was damaged during the festival and could not be repaired in time, the performances of SLIPKNOT and EVANESCENE had to be canceled for security reasons. Some attendees had little understanding and stormed the stage angrily, destroying equipment and lighting Hunt's drum kit. On his Instagram account, the drummer shared some videos of the vandalism act and commented:
"There are a lot of questions here: First of all, everybody is fine, we love Mexico and the fans in general are amazingly great "This riot that happened there was a small group of idiots and they WILL NOT affect my love for the Mexican people or our fans in Mexico."
Although his drums were on fire, the musician put one certain Galgenhumor to the day and commented: "If you already infected my beautiful Pearl Drumkit that meant with so much, at least roast meat or marshmallows over the fire !! Damn lahmarschige pussy amateurs !!"
