Post Godsmack’s Sully Erna Scolds Security After Fan Gets Tackled Onstage

Godsmack are currently on tour with the traveling Uproar Festival
with Shinedown, Staind, Papa Roach and many more. During the Aug. 31
date in Pittsburgh, Pa., a shirtless fan jumped onstage during Godsmack’s
set, and after running around a bit, placed a hat atop the head of frontman
Sully Erna. Multiple security guards tackled the fan with the intensity of
an NFL linebacker, which prompted Erna to stop midway through a song
and give the guards a piece of his mind.

Godsmack had just begun to play ‘Awake’ when the fan rushed
the stage. Erna didn’t seem to mind when a fan put a red hat
on the frontman, but security at the venue seemed to feel differently.
The video of the incident shows two guards running towards the fan
and tackling him from opposite directions. The video is a bit shaky,
but it appears the guards roughed the fan up a little bit before
getting ready to throw him out.
With his eyes locked on the situation occurring on the side of the
stage, Erna stopped playing and said, “Way f—ing unnecessary
guys. Put him down, seriously, that’s crazy. The kid put a hat on
me, it’s okay. I don’t need a f—king medic, let him go back and
enjoy the show. It’s called f—ing rock ‘n’ roll.”
The fans in the crowd cheered on Erna, before Godsmack carried
on from the second verse of ‘Awake.’
After the Dimbag Darrell onstage shooting and the recent Randy Blythe
situation, it’s not surprising that security took action to bring down
the fan after he approached Erna onstage, but did they act in a
manner which was overly forceful? Take a took at the footage
and let us know what you think in the comment

I agree with Sully. A bit much but understandable. A little less but they are tryin to protect the musicians is all.

If I got really fired up and started talking on the subject of fans' inappropriate behavior at concerts and wanting to blame someone else for their own injuries, and the fact that security is there BECUZ people don't know how to have fun anymore and be responsible for themselves and their own actions, and JUST LET THE BAND PLAY, DAMMIT, I woud be here all day.

Why can't people just hang out, smoke, drink, fuck, do whatever makes them happy in the crowd, trip on the music, watch the awesome rockstars, and LEAVE THE FUCKING BAND ALONE!!!

And to anyone who doesn't necessarily like my opinion, it's only my opinion, so I really hate that you don't like it.

Lol! :D
