Trivium gets piss balloons thrown at them on stage
 
sorry if this was posted already

A BLABBERMOUTH.NET visitor by the name of George Byron-Roberts has submitted the following report:

"TRIVIUM frontman Matt Heafy interrupted the band's set [as the support act for IRON MAIDEN] at Earl's Court, London last night [Friday, Dec. 22] to chide members of the audience after being subjected to a barrage of urine-filled balloons and bottles. Heafy and bassist Paolo Gregoletto were showered with urine during their performance of 'Like Light to the Flies'. Heafy angrily declared that the act was 'really wrong' and that if he saw anyone throwing things at the band he would see that they were 'thrown the fuck out" and 'beaten the fuck up.'

"The left hand side of the stage had been rowdy with fervent disapproval for TRIVIUM and their frontman from the beginning of their set, the band being lambasted with cries of 'death to false metal' between each of their songs; and throughout the set there was a constant exchange of rude gestures between Heafy and the antagonists. An attempt to block the missiles with a U.S. flag was shouted down by British fans, who angrily turned on the American fans, a group of young men and women who had travelled all the way from the USA to see TRIVIUM perform.

"Heafy's polemic (after battling through the rest of the song) lasted almost five minutes. However IRON MAIDEN frontman Bruce Dickinson was unusually quiet about the event, preferring to focus his rant on the safety of fans at the front of the crowd and the horrors of war."

A two-minute video clip of TRIVIUM frontman Matt Heafy having an audience member ejected from their December 12, 2006 show at the Birmingham NEC for allegedly throwing bottles at the band can be found at YouTube.com.

JOAMdude 2006-12-23 23:58

wow, that should happen more often, that is very creative

skelator of steel will be in here crying, eventually.
This brightened my day, I just had another one of those moments when you think some really hot chick likes you, then shes all like "your my bestest friend" and your mentally like "FUCK!"

Cunty Shunt 2006-12-24 08:02

Good.

Infinity 2006-12-24 08:14

yes

Pr0az 2006-12-24 11:01

One thing im not really understanding. From the story it seems that even after getting showered with pissed they still kept going. Now if i were covered in piss intead of crying to the fucking cried to stop and saying it was wrong, I would have stoped the set and took a shower. :p

IT TAKES MORE THAN A FEW PISS BALLONS TO STOP THE RAGING METAL FURY OF TRIVIUM

hahaha, probably sarcasm but I laughed

I remember reading a similar story about Panic! at the Disco and My Chemical Romance getting hit with bottles over there at some UK festival. Im just wondering how dilusional these guys must be to keep going thinking "Oh its just a few drunks in the audience or something". Its the same thing with Matt Shadows getting a cyst in his throat. Its time to stop guys, piss filled balloons means its over.

What I want to know is why someone would go out of their way to pay for tickets to a Trivium show just to throw balloons at them. Sounds like someone needs to find better things to do with their time, and their money. I guess Trivium kind of deserves it... but seriously. :p

Valtiel 2006-12-24 18:00

Maybe you missed the first part, they were opening for MAIDEN.

Death By Monkeys 2006-12-24 22:37

Ooooohhhhh.

Excuse my lack of perception. Let 'em have the piss balloons! :)

Edit: Probably the wide-spread support from the crowd for Trivium in the videos that made me think it was a concert devoted to them. Silly people.

MoonRaven 2006-12-24 23:05

THE LADDER THEORY!!! :p

trivium played here before with some other bands, i just..closed my ears :idea: hahaha.

aXeBastard 2006-12-24 23:56

I think trivum are a discrase :p there are far better bands out there. sure there good musicians but there nothing compared to guitar legends such as Dimebag, zakk wylde and van halen, ect.

Blood Red Bass 2006-12-25 00:56

I think spelling "disgrace" "discrace" is a disgrace. :)

DEAD 2006-12-25 14:46

Every band that opens for someone like Iron Maiden or Slayer gets shit. Add the fact that Trivium are fucking garbage and you get piss balloons.
