One thing is certain, when you go to a live performance, you do not expect there to be gunfire. Even if the band’s name is called Every Time I Die.
But sadly, this is what occurred over the weekend during the metalcore’s set at the Jamboree Festival in Toledo, Ohio.
Reports are still sketchy and no word on whether anyone was injured but the 2 day event which also had Hatebreed headlining, was cut short due to safety concerns.
Last week a similar incident happened while power metal band Vision Divine played at a concert in Guatemala. Those events transpired outside the venue during a clash between fans and police, where sadly a member of one of the local bands, Nova Epica, who were the support band, was wounded in the crossfire that ensued. Although Guatemala is a political hotbed for violence, the drama was caused by two drunken patrons waiting out front.
Nova Epica have been keeping concerned fans updated via their Facebook page and all signs show that the young guitarist, Cristian Arevalo is slowly on the mend.
No arrests have been made at either of the shootings.
