This was passed to me by someone at Universal Music which, given that they’re the Eagles of Death Metal’s label, had someone at their Canadian Music Week gig at the Opera House in Toronto. They had this to report.
Some guys just got into a fight in front of us and the one guy bit off the other guys ear.
I am not joking. It was the most fucked up thing I have ever seen. We had to get security to pick up his ear in case they can fix it .
Just sharing because it happened right where we were all standing.
Oh, and the band took the opportunity to launch a new beer–brewed in Ontario–from which proceeds will go to help victims to the Bataclan bombing.
