Vocalist Joey Belladonna of ANTHRAX was tackled by a safety guard final evening (Saturday, October 22) in the course of the band’s live performance at Membership Nokia in Los Angeles. The incident occurred when a fan discovered his approach onstage whereas ANTHRAX was performing the tune “Metallic Thrashing Mad”. After leaping round excitedly for a few seconds, the fan was grabbed by his arm by Joey who tried to guide him offstage. The guard, who was apparently unaware that Belladonna was positioned proper behind the fan, ran headfirst into the 2 of them, within the course of taking each the singer and and the fan down. ANTHRAX bassist Frank Bello, who was standing closest to the a part of the stage the place all of the commotion was going down, was visibly upset and tried to bodily confront the guard, solely to be restrained by among the different safety and stage personnel working the present.
“It is fairly good to deal with the singer,” ANTHRAX guitarist Scott Ian stated onstage. “Fucking geniuses they’re working right here, huh? I assume they have not seen him up right here on stage for the final 90 minutes. He is within the band!”
Added Belladonna, “Thanks very a lot — sorry about that.” He continued, “I will have a sore ass tomorrow, I do know that!”
After Joey reassurred his bandmates that he was effectively sufficient to proceed the live performance, ANTHRAX kicked into “Refuse/Resist” by SEPULTURA, adopted by the final tune of the band’s set, “I Am The Legislation”.
Ian tweeted in regards to the episode afterwards, writing, “Joey is banged up however OK. You’d assume safety would know he is within the band. He’d solely been on stage for 90 minutes.”
